While nearly 2,500 goals were scored, 290 of them from Courtney's Bree Healey, the players insisted it wasn't about the score.
"It's a miracle of the human spirit," said Val Skelly, a sales manager at Richport Ford Lincoln who spearheaded the event, called Long Game 4 CF. "Now we all know we can do anything we put our minds to. I'll never forget this moment, thank you."
