From the Official CCV Blog:
Last Friday, CCV 2011 came to a close at BCIT as the last of eight sports wrapped up. The Indoor Soccer event displayed some of the most skilled and determined participants and after all was said and done, SFU Beedie School of Business was heralded as the first Indoor Soccer Champion of CCV.
Heading into quarterfinals, WorkSafeBC skillfully secured their position as the top seed. MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates followed closely behind, while SFU Beedie School of Business was seeded third overall after round robin games. The four top seeds, including Electronic Arts, easily advanced to semi-finals with decisive victories over their opponents.
Top seed, WorkSafeBC was set to play Electronic Arts once again for a shot at gold. The two had previously met as rivals in the same round robin division. By the end of the match, WorkSafeBC had once again solidified their standing as the stronger of the two teams with a 4-1 win. EA was sent into the bronze medal match.
On the other side, SFU Beedie School of Business had the challenging task of knocking out the MDA team in order to advance to championships. Neither teams had lost a single match throughout the entire tournament, but that was all about to change. The once impenetrable MDA team was struck down at their Achilles’ heel by the sharp players of the SFU team who won with four goals to two. Thus, the MDA team was set to play EA in the bronze medal match while SFU Beedie entered the championship match with WorkSafeBC.
At the onset of the bronze match, both MDA and EA appeared as equally-matched opponents. At the end of the first period, MDA and EA were tied at a solid 2-2. However, as the game progressed, the drive in the EA team came to light and the team aggressively stepped up their game. Outshot and outscored, MDA was obliged to accept fourth place as EA made their way to the podium off a 7-2 victory.
In the CCV Indoor Soccer final match, SFU—the champions of CCV 2011 Dodgeball, and WorkSafeBC—the champions of CCV 2011 Outdoor Soccer, both competed for a second gold medal to add to their collection. Fifteen minutes into the first half of the match, SFU and WorkSafeBC were neck-and-neck at 1-1. With only a couple minutes left in the first period, SFU scored two more goals consecutively giving them a 3-1 advantage heading into the second period.
Unwilling to be silenced, WorkSafeBC responded with two goals in less than four minutes at the start of the second half, and not more than two minutes apart. Tied at three points a piece, both teams played impeccable defense and extraordinary offence in attempt to capture gold. Finally, with less than half to go in the second period, SFU sank their fourth goal, followed by a fifth to seize control of the match. As minutes turned to seconds, and seconds ran down on the clock, the horn sounded signaling the end of the match, the defeat of WorkSafeBC, and another golden moment for SFU Beedie School of Business.
Congratulations to the winners of each CCV 2011 event and a big thank you to all the participants that made it out this year. The Corporate Champions will be crowned this Saturday, June 25th at 11:00am to 2:30pm at the Wrap-Up Beach Party held at Locarno Beach.
