Congratulations to our Division 1 team on winning the IGLFA World Championship tournament in Portland, OR! The team was anchored by captain Craig Williams and goalkeeper Jim Ensor. Zach Straus scored the winning goal in the final with a brilliant freekick as FTSC defeated the San Francisco Spikes 1-0 at Providence Park (home of the MLS Timbers and NWSL Thorns). The rest of the team included Andy Fowkes, JC Spinney, Gabe Singer, Alex Bustamante, Jose Berrios, Kevin Smith, Scott Teribury, Rob Shumowsky, Erik Jones, John Whitfield, Mark Summerside, Esteban Montoya, and Brandon Warner. Well done!
