Wolves league champs, playoffs on tap

In men's soccer league action last week, CPU was heading for an end-of-the-season showdown with Xenichen Wolves, to determine who would win the league title.

The plan was that the final match would determine the league champs, much as Scott Johnson's last-minute goal against CPU gave Sechelt Chiefs the championship in the last match of 2013.

That was CPU's plan, anyway. All they had to do first was to dispatch the lowly seventh place Pender Bananas. But that didn't happen.

Some detractors claim the Pender team is called the Bananas because they act like baboons at their Pender May Day celebration, but this reporter believes it's because they cause top teams to slip up on the finish line as they peel away their points. Just ask the 2010 finalist Chiefs.

With the playoff finals coming up, this reporter had the chance to ask the always quotable Rod 'Rodnaldo' Kammerle why Pender preferred winning the Beer Cup to the honour of winning the finals, Kammerle replied, "Can you clink cans of honour? Can honour wash down salted peanuts?"

So, the Wolves are the 2014 league champs, and the men's playoffs will take place at Ted Dixon on the April 10-11 weekend.
