The Keyano Huskies are used to winning championships and looked determined not to leave Lethbridge without the banner this season. The Huskies won all five games they played at the championship tournament to win back-to-back ACAC titles. They capped the weekend with a convincing 5-0 win over the Lakeland Rustlers in the final.
The Huskies shot out to an early lead they would never relinquish. Gabriel Koebsch scored just five minutes into the game to open the scoring, and Eduardo Filho followed with a drive from right up the middle just 90 seconds later to make it 2-0. Filho scored on an almost identical drive later in the period to make it 3-0 and put Keyano in control. Before the end of the half, Koebsch added his second of the game and the Huskies went to the break with a 4-0 lead.
The Rustlers offense had been firing throughout the end of the round robin and in the semifinal earlier in the day, but it never found its groove against the Huskies. Goalie Julio Meirelles earned the shutout as he was in the way of everything Lakeland threw at him. Neto Miguel scored the only goal of the second half to secure the Huskies victory.
The Huskies are an ACAC futsal dynasty. The victory makes it back-to-back championships for the team and six gold medals in seven years. The team has medaled in all eight years the futsal has been an ACAC sport. Keyano's Eduardo Filho was named the tournament MVP.
