These red shirts from Church Of Fudge (Red) had an ancient defense - they formed out the phalanx (nicely, too). One by one, they lined up in front of the goal in order to stomp out the oncoming penalty shot.
The old Greeks would be proud - shoulder to shoulder these guys and gals were ready to block anything that came their way. But penalty shots can be beneficial. Unfortunately for them, this time it proved positive for Dolphman F.C. (Black). Their foot-man had skill and luck on his side and used the opportunity to score the first goal of the game.
Tuesday's Indoor Soccer championship game was one for the books! Just one week prior, Socc Puppets (Daisy) and Real Ale Madrid (Black) faced each other in the final game of the regular season. Real Ale came away with a 4-3 victory and, once the seeding was established, it became clear that the championship game would be a rematch. Both teams entered the finals with gold on their minds. But only one would emerge victorious.
After being down 0-2, Socc Puppets were able to stage a comeback and tie the game in the second half, sending it to overtime. When a perfect assist rolled right in front of the goal, all the Puppets needed to do was chip it in, and their victory was sealed.
So how does one celebrate a perfectly executed overtime goal in a championship game? Observe:
Step 1: Put arms up
Step 2: Jump up and down
Step 3: Hug it out
Step 4: Pose for picture with medals and bar tab
Congratulations to all our Indoor Soccer teams on a great season! Hope to see you all in the Spring!
