Final Score:...Toronto Inferno..1....Boston Renegades...4...
Attendance was about 200 which was the biggest crowd I've seen this season but not near what they deserve for being the Toronto area's most exciting soccer team (my opinion anyway).
Inferno only had 13 players and were tiring against the Renegade 18 player roster. IF the Inferno had
won, they would have lost a few more players who were leaving this weekend for their American colleges.
The Renegades forwards were just bigger and muscled the Inferno defenders off the ball.
Thanks Inferno for an exciting season!
