The ball is stolen by the defender and the counter attack begins. The players storm down the field attacking the opposing goal. With each pass, they get closer to scoring the goal they need. The ball falls to one of the players on top of the 18-yard box. He looks up at the goal, picks his spot, and shoots. The moment the ball meets the net, his teammates tackle him to the ground and celebrate. They were winning. They were one step closer to becoming champions. Alliance Football Club and 1st Tank Battalion soccer team competed for first place in the Commanding General's Intramural Soccer League at Felix Field Monday. The game consisted of the top two teams from the league competing against each other for two 45-minute halves. "Marines are naturally competitive," said Lance Cpl. Oscar Almodova, forward, Alliance FC. "We were the top two teams in the league. It was a battle for first place but I'm glad I can say that we came out on top." Alliance FC won the final by a score of three to zero. This is their third consecutive soccer championship. The next soccer season is scheduled for fall of this year.
