Kings Win PASL Midwest

Last night at the KC Soccer Dome, the Kansas City Kings won the PASL Midwest division title defeating the Springfield Spirits 16-14 in the division's championship game. The game started off slowly by indoor standards, as there weren't a lot of goals in the first half. After the first quarter, the Spirits were leading the Kings 4-0 (goals are worth 2 points, unless on a power play, 1 point, or behind the line which is a 3 pointer). The second quarter was even slower, as there was only 1 goal, as the Kings cut the lead to 4-2. The second half was a more typical indoor game, and the scoring started early in the second half, as the Kings tied the game early in the quarter. They continued on their run scoring another 6 goals without response from the Spirits to make it 16-4 before a late goal made it 16-6 at the end of the third quarter. The fourth quarter saw the Kings get a little lax on their defending and let the Spirits back in the game. The Kings defense was able to hold up, though, and won 16-14. They'll now travel to Washington DC for the PASL championships March 14-16.
