TSC United we stand : Season 1, debut season, in the TSSL Division 1 for TSC United proved to be quite the roller coaster ride. One that started with the high of 15 goals scored in the first two games and a feeling of invincibility followed almost immediately by a thrashing at the hands of our favorite rivals, the Hooligans of Toronto that brought us crashing down to earth. And then step by step, TSC built itself once again. Bit by bit, smashing wins on turf, revenge against the Hooligans and hardworking draws on grass marked the team as the apex predator in the league. Half way through the season and TSC United were cruising the league.
As is the case with most teams lucky enough to dominate leagues, complacency set in and what followed were exits in both cup competitions, one tragically as a result of a golden goal. And this affected TSC's league form as well. Wins were turning into draws and draws into defeats. A low point was reached with 4 games to go in the season when TSC played its worst game to lose 3-2 to Monterey. That game was defined by a lack of heart and desire. It was now sink or swim time for TSC United. Individual flair was being stubbornly countered by hardworking teams. TSC would now have to come together as a team. Their possession game, the very essence of their philosophy would have to come to the fore again. And as is the case with champions, when they found themselves in a rut, with their backs to the wall, TSC fought back and fought back hard. TSC United reserved its best for the last. 19 goals were scored in the last three games of the season. Possession was owned, the field was dominated and opponents were annihilated.
And with that as the season came to a close, TSC United were crowned champions. But more importantlly, with a championship trophy in hand and winners medals and winners medals around their necks, a team was formed.
Next up, the Premier division SUMMER 2016. TSC United are coming...
Indoor League and Cup
EVERY POINT COUNTS:
-TSC United dominated every single game but the
two odd games. One against Area 7 FC (7th) (3-3)
and one against a tough rivalry in Scar Bros
(Winners) (3-3).This was a big lesson to the team
in terms of making sure you go out to every game and win every possible point! One off game against Area 7 FC cost TSC United the season 1 League championship!

TSC UNITED-2015 CHAMPSSQUAD
LEAGUE AND CUP CHAMPIONS:
-After missing out on the indoor Season 1 championship by 2 points, TSC United was
determined to bounce back and send a statement to the rest of the league by
dominating almost every team. There were two teams (Scar bros and Victoria) which
were determined to give a fight to TSC United. Scarb bros managed to hand
TSC UNITED it's first defeat of the indoor season. The score read 1-0 to Scar bros after
holding on for almost the whole game with every man in their own box! Well done
Scar bros for a professional performance! Fast forward two weeks later, TSC got it's revenge by beating Scar bros 6-0. At this time, it was obvious that there was only one winner for season 2 and that team was TSC UNITED!
This was not the end of the season because there were two more trophies to be won, with the play-offs about to start and Cup games ahead! TSC United were huge favourites to land both trophies but Victoria had other ideas! Victoria was a team which got promoted mid way through season 2 (Don't know how that happened). This team was playing for a challenge and that play-off trophy! Victoria managed to knock-out Scar bros in the play-offs and got to the Cup finals as well. It all came down to the two finals (Play-off and Cup) between Victoria and TSC UNITED. First off was the play-off final. Victoria were also invloved in another final for Division 2 on the same day, while TSC had a week off before coming to this match. This was a very odd final as TSC were up 1-0 at half time but ended getting humbled with a 3-2 defeat! Cup final await a week later against the same opponent! This wasn't going to be the same match as TSC United rarely has bad performances, never mind back to back bad perfomances. Cup Final score 7-0 to TSC United.
WELL DONE TO TSC UNITED:
LEAGUE AND CUP CHAMPIONS!
This was a fantastic indoor season (8v8) to remember:
23 WINS 1 Draw 2 Lost
Goals per game: 5.6
