After exhilarating back-and-forth indoor soccer action resulted in a regulation deadlock, the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s fall indoor soccer league title had to be settled in a shootout.

Neither the Untouchaballs nor Pink Panthers, two closely matched teams who always give each other a good challenge, could hold a lead during the final, with the Panthers notching the tying goal with three minutes left to send things into a shootout. It still took sudden death shooters in the fourth round to declare a victor, with the Untouchaballs’ Tim Patterson finding the back of the net with his shot, followed up by a lunging save by ‘keeper Eric Matschke to clinch the win and set off the celebration.

The Untouchaballs finished as the champs of the local 17-team indoor fall league and will be back to defend that title for the winter season, which has a registration deadline of Jan. 10. New teams are always welcome in the co-ed league and more info is available online at www.comoxvalleysports.ca.

Third place went to Fear the Turtle, who bounced back from a disheartening overtime loss to the Untouchaballs in the semifinals to win the bronze with an 8-1 drubbing of the Shin Splints. Fifth overall went to the Solid 4th Place Contenders, who won 2-1 over Ford Fiesta to finish just outside of their namesake position, while the Graduated Predators took seventh place in a 12-10 victory over FC UK.

On the more recreational side of the bracket, Blue Toque FC  finished in ninth place with a 4-2 win over the GTG’s and 11th place went to the Mean Machine in a 10-6 victory over Kickity Split. Advil United took 13th overall with a 7-6 decision over Los Super Campeones, while the $1 Veggies jumped into 15th place with their first win of the season, a 5-4 overtime victory over the 19 Wingers. Balls to the Walls finished in 17th spot.

Registration is currently open until Jan. 10 for all the CVSSC’s winter sports leagues, including indoor soccer, dodgeball, volleyball and floor hockey. More information is on the website, or contact Scott at 250-898-7286 or scott@comoxvalleysports.ca.
