Spartans Win BSL Championship, Start of Dynasty

New York, NY

On Sunday the Spartans 1612 Football Club celebrated its penalty kick victory over the Zodiac in the 2014 BSL Championship. The match was the highest scoring and most intense BSL Final in the league's history, and was a brutal back and forth flurry of scores from both teams.

The Chairman expressed his delight on Sunday by giving the entire team significant bonuses for their season long effort, and also commended the Zodiac for their effort and dedication. With the core of the Spartan's midfield expected to return next season, this could be the start of a dynasty of success and positive results for the young club.

BSL Finals Preview and Lineup (W-P is captain)

The Spartans are a club of haves and have nots. The club has the Golden Boot winner the last two years The club has the record for the most ties in a season and the longest winning streak. The club does not have any major silverware. Spartans will hope to change that when they take on the OC Zodiac, a club that has seen a lot of success in its two years in the league but also lacks silverware.
