Surprise wins at Nelson indoor soccer playoffs

LVR, Leo’s Titans, Jackson’s Hole and Neon Indians take the trophies at the Nelson Youth Soccer indoor soccer finals.



The Nelson adult indoor soccer playoffs finished this week with a few surprises.

L.V. Rogers won the men’s open trophy on Tuesday, after taking the intense match, 7-5 against Co-op, who was ranked first in the season standings.

Regardless how many points teams collect throughout the season, everyone is in the finals, where one game takes all. The competition must have brought out the best in the underdogs as Sveta Tisma, executive director of the Nelson Youth Soccer, said there were two surprise wins by teams who went into the finals with low standings.

In the women’s league final on Wednesday, FC Leo’s Titans beat Selkirk Eyecare 7-4, even though Leo’s went into the finals ranked fourth.

There was another surprising win in the men’s masters league. Jackson’s Hole, ranked fifth going into the finals, won 5-2 against Bia Boro on Thursday.

It was not much of a shock though when Co-ed team the Neon Indians won 7-5 over the Honey Badgers on Friday. The Neon Indians have been dominating the Co-ed league and have won the trophy the last four years.

This ends Nelson Youth Soccer’s first year at the helm of indoor soccer as Soccer Quest held the indoor league for about six years prior. With one week left to register for the adult outdoor season, players will have a short break before returning to the outdoor fields the last week in April. Visit www.nys.ca for more information.
