What seventh-seed Cassiopeia managed against one top tier opponent they’ll be taking to collective heart as their unlikely playoff run gets under way.

“We look forward to playing The Expendables and hope we can shut them down,” says captain Benny Di Fruscia following his squad’s season-closing 2-1 victory over FC Curva. “Our team confidence has never been higher.”

With only one loss in their last five games, Cassiopeia will take comfort in their ability to overcome adversity – even if a win will likely pit them against undefeated “Our team really stepped up ever since top goal scorer Steven Badia got injured and needs to sit out the rest of the season.”

POTG: “A key player has been our goalie Diego Arcato, who completely shut down FC Curvas’ strikers.”
