Underdogs will kick for soccer crown

The best team during the North Cariboo Senior Soccer League regular season won't get the chance to add a playoff title.

This coming Saturday, members of Grewal Group will be spectators while the Open Division championship game unfolds between Molson/Assante and JTM Home Solutions. The match-up was the result of a pair of upsets - one major and the other minor - in semifinal games played last weekend.
