Over the weekend, I covered the NPSL Golden Gate Division final between Academica of Turlock and El Farolito of San Francisco.
The past few years, these teams have consistently been the top two clubs in the league, and when they were facing off in a final, you just knew that it would be an amazing game to experience.
It was a back-and-forth affair.
He added an insurance strike with a few minutes to spare.
After the game, the emotions boiled over.
An El Farolito player, believing a teammate was being taunted by an Academica player, ran over to defend him. For a few minutes, the players of both teams were pushing each other back and forth until coaches, and other officials pulled the teams apart.
And celebrated with drinking out of the trophy.
