One Team One Dream Wins Championship
Fake Madrid set the high water mark of 36 points which meant One Team One Dream had to earn 6 points in their match vs Bloomington Internationals to win the spring title - and that, they did. Aided by 6 minutes of Blgtn Int'ls penalties, the 4-1 victory put them in the winner's circle with pies from Wick's PIES.
B League Spring Championship To Parental Guidance
Thanks to a few doctors on the roster, David Rupp's Parental Guidance did the math at halftime and realized they needed a few more goals to win a title. In the end, Bloomington Blues couldn't match PG's scoring pace as the league leaders won their 5th in a row, and pies and Indy Eleven tickets from Wick's PIES.
Special thanks to Dylan Wickersham (pictured above left, 2nd row) for sponsoring our Spring Championships.
Kryptonite Caps Incredibly Perfect 19-0 Run
Like the champions before them, Kryptonite sailed through the '16/'17 indoor soccer seasons with perfect league performances and uncompromised poise on tournament night, to enjoy an unblemished 19-0 record in all games, and Friday, against a stubborn group of Ferocious Little Kids, another tournament title.
unCOACHables Ascend On Tournament Night
The Ad Rec THU Season & Tournament Championship was won by unCOACHables - a perrenial power house but lacking in tournament titles since the Fall 2015 season. Pierrevert SP took them to OT (Pierrevert's 3rd OT on the night) in the final, where unCOACHables prevailed.
Champions League Fall 2017 Set
The Winter 2017 Champions League featured 2 surprises: The first being that Ivory Toast (pictured above), in its second season, captured the season title; the second is finding Fake Madrid - perhaps the best-managed team in Champions League history - back in CHL play.
The Fall 2017 Champions League roster is set to include unCOACHables, Pierrevert SP, Rolls Reus, Ivory Toast, Fake Madrid and Alex Becker.
Boston Scientific Survives "Bottom 7"
Boston Scientific enjoyed the top seed in our Ad Rec TUE "Bottom 7" tourney only to meet a stingy BROOD squad in the final, where a 1-0 victory was all they needed to take home acclaim as title holders.
Dzubabes Get Their Due
They started as BHSN Men's Tennis team players looking for added fitness in the off-season but quickly grew to a dynasty as players were dropped and added. In the 2.0 version of Dzubabes, some soccer magic unfolded and a season and tournament championship became their reality.
Nick's English Hut Wins Double
Little doubt that Nick's English Hut - only in its 2nd season - would find its way to the final of the Ad Rec TUE League Tournament. They dispensed of a very tough Deportivo Mexicanse squad (1-0) to enjoy both the season and tournament championship.
Bottom 5 B League Tournament Champs
How about the High Rockers for rounding-out their season with a tournament championship in the "Bottom 5" tournament? Outstanding effort!

Kryptonite Celebrates The Double
While the U15 tournament provided little drama, the pursuit of perfection and tournament defense were the under-themes on the night. Kryptonite capped a perfect regular season with their tournament title - defeating a stingy Ferocious Little Kids squad 2-0 in the final.
The 9-team tournament featured 8 games - 7 of which ended in a shutout (a goal differential of winners-to-losers equalling 25-2). Only ORBITFC02/03 was able to muster goals in a losing effort, 3-2 to Tiki Taka.

Over 8 tournament games Tuesday night, 6 ended in shutouts.

Congratulations to LCFC for a commanding performance in the championship.

B League season champs Active Others applied the adage "Defense Wins Championships" in their league tournament, and allowed just one goal over three tournament games, enroute to celebrating the double on Monday night.

Barley Bros Win Champions League
An impressive streak of top seeds winning tournaments this week was punctuated by Barley Bros's double in the most competitive league of the season. After a brief drought of full-season titles, the men in green captured the regular season and tournament Champions League titles.
UnCOACHables - a regular favorite on Thursday nights - had enough in them to thwart league newcomer Rolls Reus in one semifinal, while Fake Madrid came-up just short in the other semi vs Barley Bros.

Fake Madrid Adds Drama & Victories In Tourney
Undefeated and top seed Fake Madrid found themselves down 2 goals in the U18 tournament final with Sweg Team, before unleashing several quick scoring opportunities and stingy defensive posture, to force overtime.
Each team had some near-misses on counter attacks in the 3-v-3 session, but an intentional hand ball by Sweg Team forced them down to 2 players, and Fake Madrid promptly scored the game winner.
Kosiers FC came close in the regular season and Boston Scientific was just as close in the tournament final, but neither team could derail top seeded CrossFire FC from there 3rd consecutive championship.
