Blue Toque FC announced their arrival as indoor soccer league contenders in a big way with a 9-7 win over the previously undefeated Untouchaballs last Thursday.

The win over the three-time co-ed indoor soccer champions of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club left both teams knotted in the standings with 4-1 records and two games left to play before the playoffs.

Strong performances by Emma Greene and captain Alex Mackay were key to the victory for Blue Toque in a friendly rivalry that had typically been lopsided in their opponents’ favour in previous seasons.

Also in the mix at the top of the A Tier standings is Cona Hostel is Neato, which rebounded from an early 5-1 deficit to win 9-7 over Das Grun (1-4). The Red Card Heroes sit in fourth place after an 8-2 victory over Word of Mouth (1-5), while the Spartans and Shin Splints have identical 2-3 records coming off their bye week.

The B Tier is led by the undefeated Honey Badgers (5-0), who walloped Abusement Park (2-3) by a 7-1 count to stay alone at the top. The Thrifty Goal Diggers (4-1) stayed in second place with a 7-3 win over the Ball Busters (1-4), while Footloose (1-4) collected their first win of the season with a great team effort in a 6-4 victory over the Free Lions (2-3).


A new winter league of indoor soccer, as well as co-ed leagues in dodgeball, floor hockey, and volleyball starts up in January and individuals, small groups and teams can register online with the CVSSC at www.comoxvalleysports.ca.
