Also of Interest:
In women's play, not only did Division II's Strikers win their final playoff match with a convincing 3-1 result, they also managed to finish first in their league standings, narrowly escaping second place Golden Rockets. Both teams finished their 10 game session with 20 points, the Strikers managing first place by netting 6 more goals and allowing 3 less then the Rockets.
Division I dynasty hopefuls, the United Black Devils, ended their streak of consecutive championships at an impressive 4 count. It isn't over though, as Manager/Trainer Barry Mowatt most likely has his eyes fixed on starting a new campaign of championships, this time exceeding the already impressive 4.
Division II men's play was packed with action and a tinge of controversy, as league leaders FC Write-Offs and Armada II were able to simply run around opponents. It became evidently clear at the onset of the session that FC Write-Offs were in a class of their own and better suited to Division I then to Division II. They led the charge, owning the league table at session's end and proceeding, at a gallop, through all playoff opponents. The final match, as they faced Cougar Hunters, delivered a deceptive score line. The 3-0 result in favour of the Write-Offs is in no way indicative of the amount of possession they held, not to mention the countless opportunities created by individuals such as Man-Of-The-Match winner, Mark Reich, Michael Lima and the speedy trickster, Jorge Calzato.
Division I's final standings were left to the last day before being decided. Armada I had temporarily placed themselves in first place by three points, however, a goal difference substantially weaker then the No Name Boys and the fact that No Name had a game in hand, did not make for an optimistic outlook. By beating the No Name Boys 6-2, Barcelona fell a goal short of 3rd place, which was secured on goal difference alone by the Super Strikers and Armada I was gifted the league title. It would appear that this unfortunate series of events brought down the spirits of an, until then, very powerful No Name squad as they very quickly dropped out of the playoffs, once again falling victim to Barcelona.
Armada fared little better as they went two rounds without being able to win a match in regulation time. Nor were they able to win in extra time as both playoff matches ended dramatically with Armada I being the victors via Penalty Shoot Outs. The heroics of the team's anchor player, Michael Burns and their phenomenal replacement keeper, Sandro Martire, handed team manager/captain Sandro Ribic, his first BAS title in 6 Finals appearances. Has the trend changed?
