Summer of Freedom League playoffs

The Federal Triangles Soccer Club’s co-ed “Summer of Freedom League” held playoff matches on Aug 24. at Bell & Lincoln Field in Columbia Heights. The Federal Triangles is a club for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and LGBT-friendly soccer players and enthusiasts. This is the first year that the organization offered an intra-club tournament. The eight teams of the league, each sponsored by a community business, faced off in matches based upon their ranking throughout the season. Seventh-ranked Toro Mata defeated Nellie’s Sports Bar 2-1, L’Enfant Cafe and Bar won against Cobra Remodeling 5-2, Ventnor Sports Cafe overcame Dahlak Restaurant 3-1, and Floriana edged out Washington Blade in the playoff championship game 4-3 to capture first place.
