Kronstadt FC vs. Left Wing Game 1 photos
Kronstadt FC and Left Wing finish Game One, of thier three game tournament, with a tie Sunday just before police got involved.
Piedmont High School was host to the first of a three game tournament between anarchist soccer team Kronstadt FC and comunist team Left Wing. Midway through the second half, organizers were faced with an angry Piedmont Board of Education member who, when not shown a permit, requested police involvment. The crowd and players remained civil throughout and organizers were able to stall the police long enough to finish the second half; ending the game with a tieing score of 2-2.

Piedmont Board of Education member gets furious while nobody pays attention to him
Only one officer arrived to the High School Soccer field. He didnt want to get too close but apparently organizers were told if the game didnt end soon, they'd be reliving the Chicago Seven trials.
Players and organizers debate on whether finishing the game early, or playing until more police showed up. They chose the latter.
Kronstadt and Left Wing finished without playing an overtime and left on good terms...until next game.
crowds were slow in leaving the high school property after the game finished despite police threats of bringing in more officers. Police left shortly after and the game was ended without conflict.
