Adult Premiere Soccer League crowns champions

The inaugural season of the Adult Premiere Soccer League concluded on Sunday with co-ed champions Team Lightning being crowned along with men's league champions FC Grey. The league boasts 92 players divided into eight teams and continues to grow as they head into a fresh season beginning Nov. 11.

"It took four of us who are dedicated soccer fans a little more than a month to turn an idea into this league," league co-creator Colin Eke said. "We'd like to thank all of the players who made this thing a success and the sponsors who supplied our championship prizes. We're looking forward to seeing everyone next season as well as a lot of new faces."

The APSL offers co-ed as well as men's soccer and is considering expanding with a women's league. For information or to register, visit apsleague.com or call (813) 444-7529.

It was a big day for the program, as the Tribe placed first in the high school division and players were seen by as many as 21 Division II and III coaches.

"After six years of building the Tribe program, we've reached a milestone by being able to provide this opportunity for our players to be seen and recruited by this many college coaches," assistant program director Rene Diaz said.

But Cuba's ambassador to the United States recently said the wait may be long. Ferries are not a high priority for Cuba.
This is an example of one of the overnight passenger ferries the  Baja Ferries wanted  to use to reach Cuba from Florida.
