KC Wolfpack (maroon/blue), KC Warlock (black/yellow), KC Cobra Kai (black/red)
On Saturday, April 24, as the steady rain was coming down in the morning and continued throughout most of the day, the KC Power footy season got underway with the annual Kirkie Cup Tournament. 3 KC teams, Wolfpack, Cobra Kai, and KC Warlock, and the Des Moines Roosters, battled it out in challenging wet conditions. A special welcome is extended to the Des Moines Roosters who continue to expand on their newly formed 2009 team.
The final saw a close game between KC Warlock and KC Wolfpack. With the score see-sawing, and KC Warlock holding onto a lead into the dying minutes, the Wolfpack was not done. The ball was moved up field and after fighting for possession, Journey made a hand pass to a running Caleb Doherty who kicked the winning goal for the Wolfpack with the absolute last kick of the day.
Congrats to the Wolfpack for winning the final, but also to all who turned up and played today. Carlos Santacruz was awarded the MVP of the tournament. Thanks to Kirkie and Scotty for umpiring all day, and a special thanks to our great supporters who sat in the rain and cheered the players on!

Some special highlights in the tough conditions included; 2 separate Alan Didak style goals from the forward pocket kicked by Thias, Yaza’s 3 goals in the final, Billy’s straight forward and calculated running game out of the backline, Walle in the backline – and doing a great job, 2nd year players Ox, Ben, Diction, Fritzy, Scotty TV, all getting a lot of the football which is very promising, Dutchy providing a headache against the Roosters, Brady’s great acrobatic chest mark, Jim and Caleb diving into the mud at every opportunity, a solid performance all day from Carlos and Thias.
