Like many of our Astros Club teams this year, Titans underwent a dramatic team makeover from last year as well as from the Fall Seeding to the Fall/Winter Indoor season. Similar to the outdoor season, there were some very challenging moments early in the season when the team were playing shorthanded, but the team eventually established a stronger core of players. With this, Titans found the “silver” lining and while they were disappointed that they weren’t able to win Division IV and have the opportunity to challenge the last-place finisher in Division III, the team ended with a strong 2nd place finish in Division IV.

With a number of players graduating and with roster changes being the theme for most of our Astros Club teams, Fury had some new energetic and committed recruits joining the team for the 2016-17 indoor season. The team steadily progressed over the indoor season and surprised a few teams with their willingness to not give up and gradually building up wins and confidence. Fury earned a very convincing 7 – 0 win over Cubs in the semi-finals to earn a berth in their first Gold Medal final. In that final, the team had their opportunities and solid goalkeeping, but were unable to get any goals behind Spartans and lost 3 – 0 in the final. This will be something to build on for next fall as the team celebrates a best-ever strong silver finish.

Spartans got even younger this year with the addition of 3 players under the age of 14 and 3 more players who still aren’t old enough to drive. Three seemed to be a theme number for the team with 3 returning indoor players, but the team steadily improved with a dedicated crew of players who were regular fixtures at indoor practices. With that commitment, the team went undefeated through fall and winter and the only blemish being a 1 – 1 tie against our other club team, Fury, early in January. Spartans continued to raise their level of play and played to a convincing 6 – 0 semi-final win over Thunder-II. The team continued to drive even harder with their best team performance and, continuing with the theme of “3”, earned a solid 3 – 0 win over Fury for GOLD in Junior Division.
