The men’s and women’s soccer finals held at Esler Park last weekend finished up with the presentation of awards.
“Brendan Charna won the Russ Lund Memorial Award which is our big annual award in honour of Russ Lund who passed away in a car accident a few years back,” says Mikel James Brogan of the men’s awards.
Curt Levens was named top goalie; Rajan Mangat, top defender; Luke Moger, top midfielder; Luke Moger, league most valuable player; and Mike Girard, playoffs most valuable player.
The final score was 5-1 for Windsor Plywood over United Floors in the men’s final. United played the majority of the game shorthanded due to injuries, making it difficult to outlast the strong Windsor side.
United worked hard to keep the score to a 1-0 half time as United’s goaltender Randy Cobb had to make some difficult saves to keep the score close.
As the game wore on, Windsor was able to score 4 more goals in the second half against the tired and out-manned United side.
The goal scorers for Windsor were Josh Mayard with 2 goals, while Josh LaKing, Nathan Zurak and Brad Thiessen scored a nice goal off the head to round out the scoring.
For United Floors, Brett Douglas scored a nice goal to take away the shut out for Windsor’s goalie Kevin Ernst.
The game MVP went to Windsor’s Mike Girard who had a strong game.
“Overall it was a great outdoor season,” Brogan says.
“The wrap up barbecue event on Saturday after the finals was enjoyed by all as awards were handed out to both the men’s and women’s sides.”
He says indoor soccer will be starting in October.
