2018 CHAMPIONS CROWNED
United FC - 2018 Division A Playoff Champions. This championship marked the first Playoff Championship for the United FC squad. Although being to the championship finals on a number of occasions in the early 2000s, the championship title seemed to elude them during that decade. In 2017, they won the 14th annual Archangel Cup Tournament beating out 16 other teams to win that title. They followed that up with a Playoff Championship victory in 2018. And this was quite an exciting game. Despite United FC leading 4-1 at one point in the game, Indomitable Lions came back to tie up the match 4-4. With limited time left, Jerome St. Bernard scored the game winner to give United FC a 5-4 victory. It was a great game played by both teams.
Unionville Stars - 2018 Division B Playoff Champions. This marked the first time in league history that a team of free agents ended up winning a major championship title. This team was originally put together in 2013 by the league in order to allow free agents to form a team. Over the years, the team kept recruiting new players while keeping many of the original core members like Rooney, Tsotsos, Nelson, Thorpe and El-Bakastiny. This also marked the team's third championship final appearance in 5 years. Despite being down 1-0 to T-76ers in the first half, Unionville Stars tied up the game in the second half. In the middle of the second half, Matt Cooke netted the game winner and they held on to win 2-1 and mark their first (of many???) championships in the league.
2017 CHAMPIONS CROWNED
MS United - 2017 Division A Playoff Champions. This championship was quite an amazing accomplishment as the Division A was stacked with 12 top quality teams. In the end, MS United ended up edging out Immortals FC by a score of 1-0 in the playoff championship finals. It was a very tight game but towards the end of the second half, it all changed after Alwyn Duncan sent a beautiful through ball to Peter Mastrangelo who ended up burying the opportunity in the back of the net. This was the second time in 4 years that Peter Mastrangelo had scored the winning goal for his team in a championship final match. It was a great team effort by all players and this victory marked the teams 3rd championship since 2013.
North York FC - 2017 Division B Playoff Champions. Although their regular season didn’t mirror that of 2016, North York FC still turned it on when it counted and had an impressive playoff run. They ended up beating Unionville Stars in the quarterfinals and then beat the Regular Season Champs, Markham United in the semifinals. In the Champions Finals they took on the T-76ers. Despite being down a goal in the second half, North York FC rallied back to win the match by a score of 4-1. This marked their 2nd consecutive championship victory in the B division.
