Southern Ohio Adult Soccer Association
2018 REGION II TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS
SOASA Was Competitive
At Elizabethtown, KY
Weather was great on Saturday morning. At 8:00 the Wolves FC of the Columbus Premier Soccer League faced the FC International from KY on a wet, slippery field. The KY team proved no match for the Wolves FC team. The final score was 2-0. At 9:30 the Cincinnati Saints, playing in a double round robin that included O-30’s and O-40’s, faced the powerful AC Eagles out of Chicago. It was a very competitive game ending in a 1-0 win for the Eagles. At 11:00 the Wolves FC was back on the field vs. the Louisville Soccer Association (LSA) U-23 team. It was another exciting game with the Wolves FC eventually a 2-1 winner. The 3:00 Men’s Open game featured the Wolves FC against the reigning TOC champion, Quinto Elemento from KS Quinto still seemed strong winning 3-0. The last games of the day were played at 4:30. Cincinnati Saints took on Levski of Chicago. It was the most contentious game of the day. Both sides were tired and grumpy. The ref had his hands full. The Saints ended up a 3-2 loser.
Sunday was a new day. The Wolves FC had a rough match, losing 6-1 in a semi to LSA from KY. Our Cincinnati Saints played the Levski team again. This time it was a 1-1 tie. The final game of the day was the Saints back in action against the AC Eagles. The Eagles took that one 4-2.
We were very pleased with our teams’ comportment, both on and off the field. We thank them for participating and representing SOASA so well. See you all next year in Ft Wayne
