Another Championship for (Mo) Leicester

Thursday Men's Soccer league in Brampton

After crowning three division champions on Tuesday, it was the Thursday Men’s league that came to a close on Thursday with 4 excellent teams facing off in the top division’s semi-finals.

Mo Leicester City FC had topped the table at the end of the regular season. They proved too strong for an excellent Mahajir FC, taking heavy revenge on the only team to have beaten them this season and cruising into the final with a 6-1 victory. Blackstars had a great match-up with Colo-Colo earlier in the season and the two teams had tied for 2nd in the regular season so a close semi-final was expected. It certainly played out that way with the 1-1 half-time tie lasting well into the second half. Blackstars broke the tie with a fine goal before Colo Colo pegged them back again until two late goals sent Blackstars to the final at the end of a tight, physical and thoroughly entertaining game.

The final was an equally tight affair, with neither team able to break the deadlock before half-time. Nick Chiarot played a captain’s role, opening the scoring by rolling one in off the far post for Mo Leicester. The Blackstars were soon level though, pouncing on a rebound after a decent save from the goalie. The final seemed bound for penalties but Mo Leicester worked the ball to the top of the box to allow their target man to spin off his defender and score the decisive goal though the keeper’s legs. As Blackstars pushed for an equaliser they inevitably left some gaps at the back and an excellent counter attack sealed the game and the Championship for Mo Leicester City FC in the dying minutes.

In the second division it was AEFC who flew out of the blocks to take a 2-0 lead. Unfortunately they couldn’t keep that pace up and by the time half-time rolled around Fortnite had pulled the deficit back and added a couple more to lead 4-2 at the break. When Fortnite scored another double after half-time the game looked over but AE pulled a couple back to suggest that a comeback might just be possible. However, as happened in many of the finals, the team pushing forward to try to salvage the game were hit on the break and Fortnite took the second division title with a convincing 7-4 victory.

The summer season of our Thursday Men’s league starts next week and we still have a couple of team spaces available and a single individual space available for registration. You can find full details at the Toronto Footy Sevens website.
