Active Others Take Perfection To Post-Season
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.
The B League TOP 10 Tourney had 4 games end in tie-breakers, 3 in shutouts and the Championship end at 2-1. Congratulations to Team Jerry Emery for their trip to the final and outstanding showing in the regular season.

Pierrevert SP, undefeated in 2, earned the 2nd seed in the bracket. Pike Soccer avoided relegation and Fake Madrid will have to earn-back its CHL placement with a top tournament performance.
Dep Santa Cruz leads the field of Thursday REC teams, but Ivory Toast has beaten 3 CHL teams in a row and appears ready to make some noise in the Thursday tournament.
Kryptonite celebrates a perfect season and the number one seed in the U15 League on Fridays. The defending champs will be challenged by #2 Ferocious Little Kids or Edward Zurface. The 8/9 match-up will guarantee a "first win" for either MQSS Mavericks or ICE.

Corpus Jurus won the Rec Tournament, so they, along with Rolls Reus, unCOACHables, Fake Madrid and Bloomington Internationals, will join Barley Bros in the Champions League, for fall, 2016.
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.
Fall Champions Logan Pause FC extended succes through the winter in capturing the regular season and tournament titles in the Over 30 League. BROOD battled 2nd seed Bloomington Internationals to victory but couldn't manage a win in the final.

With 1:12 remaining in the title game, unCOACHables found the match's first goal, and a minute later, IU Club Soccer - Red found the second. A flurry of action in a golden goal OT session of 3-v-3 saw IU score and capture the championship.
