Topsport FC rallied to brush back FC Tropics 4-2 and clinch the Vernon Indoor Soccer League regular-season banner Wednesday night.

This bitter rivalry seemed to be the perfect way to end a well-played season.

The first half kicked off with end-to-end attacking play being shown from both teams. FC Tropics was first on the scoreboard after a deflected shot beat goalkeeper David Weir.

Topsport came back attacking with multiple shots but they failed to hit the target. It went further downhill for Topsport after they conceded a penalty kick. Weir saved the penalty but the 3-15 Tropics finished the rebound making it 2-0.

At the start of the second half, Topsport came out appearing a new team. Striker Lendrit Ademi gave Topsport a little hope with a goal making it 2-1. This was just the boost that the Topsport players needed, as they came back and equalized through Quinzy Aarts-Roman.

Both teams were pushing to get the go-ahead goal and a Topsport counter attack led to Perez Vermeulen beating two defenders before firing a driven shot past the goalkeeper. It was now looking up for Topsport (13-5).

Ademi scored once more, which put the finishing touches on the game. Ademi took the title of the league’s Top Scorer with 32 goals in 13 games.

The Young Topsport squad will not be competing in the playoffs as they are heading off to the Netherlands to compete in tournaments.
