De Anza College’s LEAD organized the annual intramural soccer game on June 6.

About 100 spectators  attended the game to show support for their peers.

Snacks and water were provided for people who attended the event.

Seven teams competed in the tournament, which consisted of three rounds.

The tournament was open to all De Anza students who wished to participate.

Many regulations were kept in place during the tournament.

Two women per team were mandated to be on the field at all times and only a maximum of three De Anza soccer players were allowed on each team.

Only a maximum of 11 people were allowed on each team.

In the first round of the tournament, seven teams were formed and three games were played.

The United Nations team automatically advanced to the next round, as they were not competing with another team.

In the second round, four teams competed for a spot in the final round.

The final tournament consisted of the United Nations against the Blue Eagles, with the former team winning the competition.

They were presented with the championship trophy at the end.
