Around The League


Highlights - CKS Warta A 8 : 2 SAC Wisla

 

CKS Warta A made it two in a row last Friday when they pounded SAC Wisla 8:2. Luis Adame and William Butler each scored a pair of goals to pace first-place Warta.

 

Adame scored in the opening minute of the contest and Abulwahab made it 2:0 to give Warta a commanding lead at the break.

 

Warta broke things open in the second half. Goals from Robby Gunderson, Adrian Ortiz, Jose Valladares, Adame, and Butler made it impossible for Wisla to stage a comeback. Wisla only got on the board when the score was 7:0, as Warta appeared to briefly lose focus.

 

 

 

Warta changed their first line to be more productive and the adjustments certainly had their effect. Nestor Garcia made his debut for Warta and contributed to the win.

 

Highlights - Vikings AA 1 : 6 CKS Warta A

CKS Warta A opened the new indoor season last Friday with a comprehensive 6:1 thumping of Vikings AA. Warta scored twice in the first half and then added four more after the break to breeze to victory.

 

Aranda opened the scoring in the early minutes and Luis Adame bagged his first just before the break.

 

Gunderson made it 3:0 to start the second half, and William Butler drilled a spectacular long-distance shot just under the crossbar a few minutes later.

 

The Vikings spoiled Warta's  bid for a shutout when they pulled to within 4:1.

 

Adame then bagged his second to make it 5:1, finishing off a great solo effort when he got past two defenders and the keeper, calmly placing the ball in the back of the net. Bookie Abulwahab finished off the scoring just seconds before the final whistle.

2018 Outdoor Season Wrap-Up

The National Soccer League has wrapped up its 99th season of outdoor competition and two teams earned top honors.

 

Longtime powerhouse RWB Adria won the regular-season title, racking up 22 points from nine matches. The race for the championship was tightly contested, with just five points separating the top five teams.

 

The post-season playoff tournament was won by CKS Warta, who claimed the sixth and final playoff spot. Warta knocked off Wisloka Chicago in the final. Wisloka surged to the title match after finishing the season in fifth place. The tournament results underscore the quality and parity that exists among the league's top teams.

CKS Warta - 2018 NSL Champions!

CKS Warta claimed their first outdoor championship on Sunday with a resounding 4:0 victory over Wisloka Chicago in the league's playoff final. Warta were in charge of the affair right from the start, as Wisloka rarely looked like they could compete on the same level.

 

Warta went ahead in the 23rd minute, when Luis Adame fired a powerful header into the back of the net, finishing off a cross from the left side.

 

William Butler made it 2:0 just before halftime, as Juan de la Cruz sent a perfect through ball for Butler, who broke through the Wisloka defense. Butler came 1 v 1 on goal and made no mistake with a shot that found the far post. 

 

Warta exerted their grip on the contest just before the hour mark, when de la Cruz's smooth maneuvers inside the penalty area left Wisloka helpless. He curled a shot into the top corner, leaving the goalkeeper rooted.

 

Joel del Toro made it 4:0 in the final minute, lofting a delightful chip from outside the box over the goalie.

 

Wisloka finished the match with nine men after the referee sent off two of their players late in the second half.

 

Warta adds the outdoor title to their indoor championship and their victory in the Illinois Stare Cup.
