Special to the Tribune

The Williams Lake Mens Soccer League wrapped up their 2022/23 Indoor Season on April 18, 2023 at Williams Lake Secondary gymnasium.

The indoor league had four strong teams this year that participated in their annual season end playoffs.

United Floors have previously won the season end playoffs five consecutive years in a row before and post-COVID.

Contesting the finals this year was Pinnacle and Windsor.

United Floors contested against the “Blues” team in a 6-2 victory to claim third place for the indoor league this year.

Pinnacle faced off against Windsor Plywood in a thrilling contest for first place.

Pinnacle led the game with five minutes to go until Windsor equalized to bring the game into extra time.

With seconds left on the clock for extra time Johannes Hoelderl with the very last kick of the game sealed the victory for Pinnacle.

Their first place finish ends the dominance held by United Floors who have finished first many times over the years.

The trophy was awarded to the winning team as were trophies and recognition for Most Sportsman Like Player awarded to Andrew Hutchinson and the Russ Lund award to Dragan Jukic for his participation in the league in bringing players together.
