As we approach the final week of the 2013 DirectKix Summer Season we are just one game away from crowning the Champions. Here is a breakdown of whats at stake and our thoughts on what it will take to bring home the Cup.
Serie – A
Green Goes vs. L.A. White
Green Goes qualified for the playoffs on the final day of the regular season but after a very tough semi final match find themselves in the Final with the chance to defend there title and go for back to back cups. Led by captain Mike Cassidy you never can count these guys out. They square up against a very touch L.A White side that also battled a tough Semi Final match to make it to the Championship game in their first season together. The keys to winning this match will be which team will be able to stop the attack of the opposition. The Daniels-Stock brothers carry most of the scoring load for Green Goes as Ege Jens led L.A. White and the league in goals through the season.
Macabee vs. Real So Mal
With these two teams both looking for their first championship, this has the making of a very hard nosed defensive battle. Neither team is new to the DirectKix League and has long awaited the opportunity to raise the cup. It seems as if whichever team goes up first will have a great advantage in holding on throughout what may be a defensive battle.
Premiership Final –
Silver Stars vs. Boomerangs
This is the Silver Stars 3rd consecutive finals appearance. They have won 1 of those and lost 1 and look to be crown champs for a 2nd time. In order to do so they will however have to get past the regular season league winners Boomerangs. Their high powered offense led the league in goal differential and cruised to an undefeated regular season record. Boomerangs have been the only undefeated team in all DirectKix divisions this season, however anything less than a title will be a disappointment. Either way this promises to be an unforgettable final.
Bundesliga Final –
Lemon Heads vs. Motley Crew
This is both of these teams first appearance in the Championship match. These two sides dominated the division and finished in 1st and 2nd place separated by only 1 point. They have been on a crash course to the final all season long, however Lemon Heads had a great come back from behind victory in the Semi Final while Motley Crew asserted their way into the Final. Motley Crew is a result of a great leadership ob Judy Bagg who put together a great group of people season after season to the point where they have the opportunity to be the Champs.
Good Luck to all of the participants. Looking forward to another great season of DirectKix Soccer.
