McCann FC Fight Hard in Playoff Finals
McCann FC made the playoffs as the #1 seed after getting through the regular season undefeated at 5-0.
That meant they had to play in the first game at 6:30pm against Squad Goals, the #4 seed for the tournament. The game was fast-paced and full of goals by the McCann FC team. There were over 7 different scorers for the team, which lead to a quick victory to get us to the final game that night.
After awaiting the #2 and #3 seed teams fight it out, the final teams were set – McCann FC vs. futBOLers at 8:30pm.
The final game was a har- fought match between the two best teams of the 10-team league. It was futBOLers though that got off to a quick start with a 1-0 lead in the first half. Good thing that McCann FC had battled back before, because the team was able to find the net three times in a row, to take a lead heading into the second at 3-1. The last ten minutes of the game were hard fought, but resulted in two goals by futBOLers to tie the game up 3-3. The game then went into a golden goal sudden death scenario and after a few minutes of play, the other team was able to get lucky off a deflection from a defenders foot to find the back of the net and win the final. It was a tough break for the McCann FC team, but they rallied around each other in the end.
McCann FC then finished off the season with a happy hour to celebrate at one of the local Union Square bars. The team is hungry for another chance at the title and will be back out on the Asphalt Green field on June 23rd for their 4thseason!
