Veteran experience trumped youthful enthusiasm in the A Tier final of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s Indoor Soccer League last Thursday.
It was Blue Toque FC, the indoor soccer veterans and former league champs, rising to the occasion to regain the title with a 7-2 win over the league newcomers Blue Balled. The game was closely contested until the final 15 minutes, when Rob Caya snared the go-ahead goal and his team proceeded to pull away on the scoreboard.
Blue Balled had climbed into the championship game by knocking out the previously undefeated No. 1 seed, I Don’t Know, but had trouble getting through the stellar Blue Toque defence. In the third-place game, I Don’t Know won by a 7-0 score over Multiple Scoregasms to finish on a high note.
The Norwegian Refs took fifth place with a 10-7 win over Mint Berry Crunch, while Smells Like Team Spirit notched a 12-5 win over Scoring All Night for seventh spot. The Red Card Heroes will face the Untouchaballs for ninth place in the tier.
The B Tier final will pit AFC United up against the Free Lions, as both teams ended with identical 6-1 regular season records and edged out their semifinal opponents. United Confusion will face The Off Side for third place in the tier.
The Toepunters will play against UnReal Madrid for seventh spot, while NISU Soccer Club, One Dollar Vegetables and The Black Ninjas will face off to figure out ninth overall.
