Multi-national FC Indiana rewarded with WPSL title
July 30th, 2007 7AM

MOST COMMENTED

Spaniard Maria Ruiz scored the opening goal two minutes before halftime, and Indiana put the game away with two goals after a red card to New England's Megan Cunningham in the 58th minute -- and the subsequent ejections of Mutiny head coach Tony Horta and his assistant for protest.

FC Indiana started players from six different countries -- USA, Russia, Spain, Mexico, Italy and Australia -- against New England.

"Last year, we just did not have enough depth and enough quality players and individuals," said FCI coach Shek Borkowski. "This team in terms of experience, leadership and technical ability is our best team ever. We lost five starters to injuries and international duty and these girls still found ways to win and outscore our opponents 75-5 in 15 matches. For me personally, this group of players was very enjoyable to work with."

Both Indiana and New England had prevailed over Ajax America and Tampa Bay, respectively, on penalty kicks after their game ended in a 1-1 tie.
