Commando Challenge VII Revenge of the GOFO’s & the Lame Ducks take flight.
March 29, 2017 will go down in the Commando Franchise History as a ‘Day of Infamy’. First of all it was the Commando Lite squad being bested by a combative Lame Duck team by a convincing margin of 3:1
This was the first time that the Foreign Military attaches have beaten the Commando Lites and this victory ties up the 2017 Commando Challenge series at one game apiece. A battered Commando team found itself in tough against a General Officer & Flag Officer squad (Aka the GOFO’s) that featured a number of youthful call-ups. With only 2 minutes on the clock, the Commandos were down 3:1. The goalie was pulled in favour of an extra attacker and a flustered GOFO team took a penalty. With the two man advantage the Commandos scored to close within one goal and just 45 seconds on the clock. The goalie remained out, but the Commando attack faltered and the GOFO’s put the game out of reach with an empty net goal. Final score 4:2.
The real winners were the Cadet Leagues of Canada as the Charity game raised a total of $3,850 for these great organizations.
