Epic win soccer title with epic comeback

Registration open online for Comox Valley Sports & Social Club fall programs

Big comebacks are great. Big comebacks that finish in a shootout victory are apparently Epic.

The Epic soccer team earned the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s A Tier summer soccer championship last week by firing two goals in the final minutes, then sealing the 4-3 victory over the Fubar’d Streakers in the shootout. Sniper Ben Wyatt potted all three of the team’s goals in regulation, plus a tally in the shootout, while keeper Phil Schalm clinched the win with a big stop in net.

The win gave Epic back-to-back spring and summer championships in the A Tier. Meanwhile, the TC Valley Collision Write-Offs proved their season was anything but a write-off with a shootout victory of their own in the B Tier final.

The Write-Offs earned first place on a bit of a funny finish, when the winning shot deflected off the goalie’s hands and crossbar and initially bounced outside the goal. A heavy dose of backspin torqued it backwards into the net and gave them the victory in an even game with The Offside.

Other results in the 21-team outdoor league saw Blue Toque FC finish in third place in the A Tier over Club America, and the Free Lions nab third place over Pink Elephants FC in the B Tier.

Now the co-ed teams will prepare for the CVSSC’s Fall Indoor Soccer League, which starts in mid-September.

Registration is open online at until Sept. 15 for singles, small groups and teams to join any of the CVSSC’s fall leagues. The lineup of co-ed sports available includes indoor soccer, volleyball, dodgeball, floor hockey, ultimate Frisbee and badminton.
