The Williams Lake Men’s and Ladies Soccer Leagues finished up their indoor futsal seasons recently with playoffs.

On the ladies’ side the early game saw the first of two semifinals on the competitive side as the Hattricks took on Caribou Ski.

The Hattricks managed to sneak off a 4-2 win against the ladies from Caribou Ski in a closely matched contest. The second competitive semifinal saw 150 Mile face off against Windsor. The second-seeded 150 Mile was overtaken by the third-seeded Windsor to lose 5-3.

On the recreation side the Dog Creek Strikers and Thiessen Dental, winners from the previous weekend’s semis, faced off in the final.

The game was incredibly close with both teams battling back and forth, but after regulation time the teams were tied. It took two, five-minutes halves of overtime, where each team scored once more, and then a shootout to determine the winner. The Dog Creek Strikers took the shoot out and won the game 4-3.

Next up was the competitive final which saw Hattricks take on Windsor. The game got off to a quick start with Lindsay Thiessen scoring twice to put Windsor up. Unfortunately for Windsor the young ladies of the Hattricks were quick to rally and then take a lead.

The game was very physical and quick paced with Windsor putting the pressure on the Hattricks goalie, but they were unable to get any more past her as the Hattricks went on to win 5-2. It was an excellent afternoon of futsal with many players and fans taking in the final games.

On the men’s side, which wrapped up its playoffs early March, it was Blues United upending the Hogs 2-1 in overtime to win the championship, following a hard-fought 1-0 win over Windsor Plywood in the semifinal.

In the other semifinal the Hogs downed United Carpet, 3-1, to advance.

Luke Moger and James Smart scored for Blues United in the final, while Dave Peever notched the only goal for the Hogs.

United Carpet, however, did get the nod for being the best team throughout the regular season, finishing first.
