Championship Match: Pars FC 1 – 1 Rover30 (4-5 PK's)
Sunday October 26 at 2:30pm Rapids Practice Field
Possibly the most intense championship match of the year these two teams brought their "A" games for the final! With such good play on both sides of the ball the game had to be decided by kicks from the mark following a 1-1 tie. The teams were still tied after five shooters and the match could only be decided in sudden-death shots as the sixth Rover30 shooter buried his PK.
