Soccer teams close out indoor season

Four of the best indoor soccer teams in the city squared off earlier this month.

Four of the best indoor soccer teams in the city squared off earlier this month as the Williams Lake Men’s and Ladies’ Soccer Leagues finished off their seasons with playoffs.

In the competitive division, United Carpet knocked off Windsor Plywood, 8-6, to be crowned the men’s champions. In the ladies’ competitive final it was Windsor Plywood squeaking out a 3-1 victory over 150 Mile Tire to claim the title.

Scoring in the ladies’ final for Windsor Plywood were Lindsay Thiessen, Ashley Johnston and Ashley Callander, while 150 Mile Tire’s tally was scored by Nicole Therrien.

In the men’s final United Carpet striker Mike Brogan found the twine three times. Grant Gustafson and Kostia Stolbov each scored twice, while Andrew Hutchinson added a single. Windsor tallies came from Kevin Woodward (2), Graham Fulton (1), Derek Funk (1), Dylan Taylor (1) and Daryl Taylor (1).

United Carpet finished the regular season as the fourth seed heading into playoffs, defeating the 100 Mile Hoggs and the RCMP — the second overall seed — in the semifinal. Windsor, a surprise entrant into the final, finished the league in sixth spot, downing Puddle FC (third overall) in the quarterfinal and Blue United (first overall) in the semis.

On the ladies’ side it was a battle to the finish with Windsor winning a tight semifinal game over United Floors, 6-4. 150 Mile Tire, meanwhile, dominated its semifinal match over the Hattricks to advance to the final.

In the ladies’ recreational division Thiessen’s Dental marched away the victors after edging Alkali, 1-0, with a solo tally from Mavis Skerry.

Both the men’s and ladies’ soccer leagues are now accepting registration for their respective outdoor seasons, which run at the Esler Sports Soccer Complex.

The ladies’ outdoor league begins in the second week of May with exhibition games. The regular season is set to begin following the May long weekend. Games go Mondays and Thursdays (every second Monday). The WLLSL welcomes new players of all skill levels, and offers a grace period to try soccer with two exhibition games before making a monetary commitment. Registration is due May 3, with a late fee following, and can be completed at www.williamslakesoccer.com or at Caribou Ski Source for Sports.

For the men, registration can be completed online at www.williamslakesoccer.com or in person at Caribou Ski Source for Sports.

Both seasons run from May through to July.
