There is a new champion in intramural outdoor soccer!

Victorious Secret (4-1) and the Wor-Worriors (3-2) met in the championship game after a long season of competitive matches. Early in the season they faced off in a game that came down to the wire. Victorious Secret came back from an early deficit to win the game in a penalty shootout. The championship game proved to be another tough contest for each team as the Wor-Worriors looked to avenge their defeat in the regular season meeting. Going into the final stages of the game the Wor-Worriors held a 1-0 lead. With about 6 minutes remaining in the game Victorious Secret tied the score at 1-1. Shortly after they punched in another goal to take the lead, which they would not relinquish on their way to becoming the 2011 Outdoor Soccer champions. Victorious Secret is: Mike Conway, David Siracuse, Garrett Loria, Jared Persons, Jordan Brown, Kyle Jessee, Mark Rykojc, Matthew Chase, Talon Fee, and Walker Owen.
