"It did (touch Strobl)," said GW senior Garrett Warner. "I saw it. It did. It's as simple as that."
GW Coach Tom Hopper wasn't sure that Strobl had made contact, but also wasn't aware that the kick had been ruled indirect.
"I never saw an indirect kick indicated, but I could have missed it," said Hopper. "I didn't see the signal. I don't know if anyone saw the signal or not and the ball...we thought it did touch the keeper's hand at some point though.
"It's a judgment call. Who knows?"
Strobl had a different account of what took place.
"I did not," said Strobl when asked directly whether he'd touched the ball or not. "I thought it was a goal though because I thought it was a direct kick.
"I was all like dangit I just let one in, but I actually didn't touch the ball. Luckily it wasn't direct."
The championship match will be a rematch from the regular season in which the Big Reds placed the only blemish on Hurricane's season with a 1-1 tie in the regular season finale.
Fosselman knows that it will take his team's best effort to upset the top-ranked Redskins.
"We're going to have to play better," said Fosselman. "I don't know if we played our best game tonight. We played good enough to win, but possession will have to come up 100 percent.
"We did not possess the ball well, but we'll try to keep the ball out of their hands a little bit. But they'll counterattack. This is going to be a tough, tough game. They're so good."
