Soccer Battle Moves To Board Rooms

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 last night at a meeting of the Kingsley board and 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 -- just outside of Traverse City -- setting state and national records for most goals. Kingsley's superintendent 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.
