Fall 2011 Maroon Division Champs
Spring 2012 Aqua Division Champs
The Fusion played great for 57 minutes, but unfortunately, the game was 60 minutes. Such a brief lapse resulted in two quick goals, costing the Fusion the game.
The first half was fairly uneventful for the first eight minutes. However, at that time, the Cougars had the Fusion pinned down in their defensive third of the field. The Fusion attempted to clear the ball upfield, but the clear ended-up being a beautiful crossing pass for the Cougars. One of the Cougars pounced on the ball with a one-timer and buried it in the net for a one-nil lead. The remainder of the half did not bring much excitement until the 28th minute, where Hannah took one of the only attempts of the half and snuck it past the Keeper to take the Fusion to halftime with a 1-1 tie.
The second half started off with a bang. Unfortunately, the Cougars brought more bang than the Fusion. Less than one minute into the half, the Cougars drove up the left side of the field, beating all of our defenders and striking the ball from a distance to net their second goal of the game. Less then two minutes later, the Cougars were on the attack again. This time they fired the ball into the penalty box where the Fusion were called for a hand ball, resulting in a penalty kick. The Cougar taking the kick launched a fireball to the inside of the right post to put the Cougars up 3-1. About one minute later, the Fusion mounted an attack resulting in Erin winning a 50-50 ball with the Cougar Goal Keeper and netting it to bring the Fusion within one goal. Unfortunately, the Fusion could not find the back of the net for the rest of the game.

The Fusion got off to a rough start against the WFB Bengal Tigers. After 18 minutes of fairly sloppy defense, the Fusion found themselves down 2 nil. At this point, Sophia put the Fusion on her back and carried them back into the game. She started with a goal twenty-one minutes into the half and another one three minutes later. Sarah added another at the thirty minute mark, but so did the Tigers to end the half 3-3.
The Fusion dominated the second half. Erin scored the first goal of the half (and her first of the game) six minutes in. The ball started left of the goal. Megan passed to Hannah who dumped the ball off to Erin on the right and she buried it in the net. Two minutes later Olivia P. sent a pass from midfield to the left side of the box where she connected with Mackenzie. Mackenzie fired it into the goal. The Tigers struck back in the fourteenth minute with their final goal. However, the Fusion were not. Erin scored her second of the game at the eighteen minute mark and Nandini finally found the back of the net at the twenty-eight minute mark. Nandini had several shots on goal that continued to barely miss left and right.
Final: Fusion 7, Tigers 4
