All about redemption

It took five years, but the Fitness etc. Warriors is the first team to ever win the Adult Soccer Tournament in the Comox Valley.

It took five years, but the Fitness etc. Warriors is the first team to ever win the Adult Soccer Tournament in the Comox Valley.

The Warriors took first place in the co-ed seven aside tourney last weekend after some sweet redemption.

The Warriors defeated team Hammertime 2-1 in the semi-final to launch themselves into the final after the Warriors lost to the same team 3-1 in round-robin play.

The final game came down to a single shot after regulation play didn’t solve anything and the two teams went into a shootout knotted at two goals a piece. In the shootout it was the Warriors who prevailed over team Fubar, which the Warriors had also lost to in round-robin play, by a score of 5-2.

Outstanding goal tending from the Warriors’ Adam Clarkson kept the team in it. Stunningly, Clarkson also scored for the Warriors in the final, running the length of the field and beating Fubar’s goaltender.
