Blue Toque drives Los Lobos loco

Amazing comeback highlights championship in social club floor hockey league

You could excuse the Los Lobos if their run of bad luck in the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s indoor soccer final drives them a little loco.

Sitting comfortably in the driver’s seat of the A Tier championship game, the Los Lobos sported a seemingly insurmountable 6-4 lead with just 90 seconds left to play. But their veteran opponents, Blue Toque FC, have a history of pulling off the unlikely in big games and quickly put the gears in motion for a memorable upset.

Behind the lightning quick strikes of Mason Walker and Emma Greene, Blue Toque turned the game on its head and jubilantly forced a shootout. That’s where the two super-snipers struck for goals once again, which combined with a key final save by keeper Dale Greene on Lobos captain Logan Macdonald to snatch a 7-6 victory and the fall A Tier title.

Smells Like Team Spirit didn’t allow for such heroics in the B Tier final of the 16-team league, grabbing an early lead against North Island College and keeping a cushy buffer to win the game and title by a 10-6 count. Third place in the A Tier went to AFC United in a 7-4 win over Epic, while the Goal Diggers took third in the B Tier with a 5-1 win over the Free Lions.
