Red Card Heroes take on Norwegian Refs

Social club's indoor soccer league championship up for grabs

Red Card Heroes Face Norwegian Refs in Soccer Final

 

 

 

The battle for local indoor soccer supremacy ironically pitted the Refs against the Red Cards Thursday night.

Both the Norwegian Refs and Red Card Heroes pulled off upset victories last week to advance to the A Tier final of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s Indoor Soccer League. While the Red Card Heroes dispatched the defending champion Blue Toque FC team by a 5-2 count – handing their opponent their only defeat of the season – the Norwegian Refs barely held off a late charge by Cona Hostel, What! to win 9-8.

The Norwegian Refs (named for the controversial ref who drew the nation’s scorn from her handling of the U.S. vs. Canada Olympic women’s soccer game) beat the Red Card Heroes 3-2 in their only meeting earlier this year. Blue Toque FC will now face Cona Hostel, What! for third place.

Rounding out A Tier action, the Multiple Scoregasms will face the Spartans for fifth spot and the Untouchaballs will face Smells Like Team Spirit for seventh place.

The B Tier final will pit The Off Side against the Free Lions after both teams won their semifinal games. The One Dollar Vegetables and Toe Punters will face off for third place.

Results were unavailable at press time.
