School concerned about sportsmanship after new soccer record
KINGSLEY, Mich. (AP) — A school board in northern Michigan plans to send a protest over sportsmanship following a soccer player’s 16-goal record-setting game against a winless team.
The backlash over Kevin Hubbell’s performance continued Monday night at a meeting of the Kingsley board.
There’s support for sending a protest to the Benzie Central school board. Hubbell is one of the best players in Michigan.
He scored 16 goals in a 17-0 victory by Benzie Central over Kingsley, setting state and national records for most goals.
Kingsley Superintendent Keith Smith says it was a “cheap shot” against a young team.
The Benzie Central coach says he wasn’t trying to humiliate an opponent by keeping Hubbell on offense.
