The Whitehorse Futsal League came to a thrilling end last Wednesday at the Canada Games Centre.

Pitted against each other in the championship game were Idolos versus the CSG boys. The week prior in semifinal action, the Idolos earned the title berth in a hard-fought contest against RDFC – a game they won 3-2.

The CSG boys, also known as the Junior Selects, cruised to a well-earned 4-0 victory over the Grizzlies in the late game action.

In the championship tilt, the CSG boys kept their composure, even after being down, to capture the Whitehorse Futsal League title 3-2.

The championship game had everything a fan would expect from a title contest. The intensity was there and all players on the floor were hustling to make plays.

In the first, of two 20 minute frames, the Idolos struck the back of the net first.

Kaelen Lewis corralled the ball and went streaking down the side of the court. He created enough space to get the shot off which he made no mistake of firing into the upper part of the net.

While the game remained 1-0, both teams had quality scoring chances but each goalkeeper was up to the task – each making some spectacular saves.

The CSG boys knotted it at one off the foot of Ben Kishchuk. After a corner, Kischuk found himself some space in front of the net. He made no mistake firing it home.

Before the first half came to an end, Idolos regained their one-goal advantage. After some slick passing, the ball was crossed to Steve Dynes, who was on the far post. Dynes made no mistake burying the pass into the net.

In the second stanza, both teams again traded chances but couldn’t find the back of the net. The intensity of the match continued to mount – leading to more foul calls.

Idolos received a costly foul call when they took down a CSG boys player in the box. Kischuk stepped up to take the free-kick. He fired left as the goalie dove right and the game was tied 2-2 with about 10 minutes remaining.

With a little more than three minutes remaining in the contest, Kischuk completed the hat trick, netting the ball off the rebound. The goal proved to be the winner as the buzzer sounded.

The bronze medal match was played between RDFC and the Grizzlies. RDFC took the match 4-2.

Dillon Vickerman scored two for RDFC and Marten Sealy and Jesse Latoski potted the others. For the Grizzlies, Lars Jessup and Sean Macdonald found the net.
