Coed league (Sunday)
MicMac Toyota 6
If you were watching the epic NFL game between the Colts and the Patriots Sunday night — you were watching the wrong game. The true clash of the titans on Sunday evening took place at the Canada Games Centre.
Fans crowded the third floor running track to see this historic match. The all black Mic Mac fine-tuned machine faced off against the Assante “purple people eaters.” Assante came on strong in the first half, but Mic Mac battled back to take the lead with seconds left.
With time running against them Mr. Diaz, the fearless purple star, made a last ditch effort to tie the game running up the sideline and receiving a pass from the mighty Greg.
All you could see from the bench was a swirl of black and purple, as the dust settled the goalie emerged clutching the ball.
