Dirty Dozen are the champions of Soccer Quest’s Ladies Rec League after the squad defeated Selkirk Eyecare 4-2 on Wednesday night.

The two squads, who finished first and second in the division, were evenly matched throughout the night. After the first half, Dirty Dozen held a 2-1 lead, but early in the second half, Selkirk tied the score.

However, the Dozen slowly began to take over the game, scoring two more goals to take the title.

“It was an awesome game. They fought hard but our team came together in the end and everyone played together and made it through. So it was a tough game and they were amazing opponets,” said Kelly Newhouse of the Dirty Dozen.

While it is a fun league, there was still plenty of intensity on the turf.

“It’s always competitive, it’s sports. It’s a good group of people and everybody respects each other, so it was a good way to win.”

Earlier that same night,  the Red Dog and Lunachicks battled it out for third and fourth place in the league.

In another intense and high scoring game, Red Dog came out on top, winning 9-8 in overtime.

Jen Grant scored the game-winning goal for Red. In the contest for fifth and six place, Jackson’s Strikers defeated the FC Leos 6-4.

“It’s a totally fun league, we just had a blast playing this year,” said Strikers’ captain Lua Gerun.
