The Williams Lake Men’s Futsal League final featured a very close game between United Floors and Windsor Plywood Tuesday night, April 14, at the Lake City Secondary gym.

United finished atop of the six-team league regular season standings with a 12-0-3 record and were looking to add playoff champions to their resume versus third seeded Windsor.

United struck first midway through the first half as Grant Gustafson smashed home a rebound off a Rick Heal shot past Windsor keeper Dave Peever to make it 1-0.

Windsor leveled early in the second half as Kian Sabha’s shot went off the post and in to knot the game at 1-1. United would eventually score the winner about 10 minutes from time as Gustafson sent the ball across the net to Sean Glanville who slammed the ball into an open net to make the final 2-1.

Both goaltenders, Peever and United’s Curt Levens, played outstanding.

Other members of the winning United side included Matt McMath, Andrew Hutchinson, Nick Iachetta and Braden McCallum.

Other members of the runner up Windsor side include Sirel Valdivia, Landon Benson, Kevin Ernst, Michael Mthandazo, Gerardo Cibrian, Teo Ransome and Mike Garrard.
