Desert Hills takes men’s soccer title

It was a battle of the top two teams for the Murray GM Mens Indoor Soccer League championship.

It was a battle between the top two teams for the Murray GM Mens Indoor Soccer League championship.

The PFC Young Stars, first in the league, were defeated by the Oliver Desert Hills Winery 7-6 on March 24. Oliver Desert Hills Winery took advantage of a Young Stars side that didn’t have its full team and played without subs.

Dale Anderson, president of the Penticton Soccer Club, said it was an entertaining final, despite the Young Stars disadvantage. PFC lost just one game all season entering the playoffs. The playoffs kicked off with the Panthers defeating the Damaged Liverpools to play PFC, who won that match. Desert Hills then defeated KVS Pub. That set up the final between PFC and Desert Hills.

Following the Young Stars and Desert Hills in first and second in the standings, KVS Pub was third, the Black Panthers were fourth and the Damaged Liverpools were fifth.

Anderson thanked everyone who supported the league and helped it be a success.
