2007 CAIS Junior Girls' Soccer Tournament

Last week, the Middle School Girls Soccer Team travelled to Oakville, Ontario to take part in the Canadian Association of Independent School’s Junior Girls’ Soccer Tournament. Hosted by St. Mildred’s-Lightbourn School, the tournament was a great success for the U-15 SMUS Girls Soccer Team.

“The girls played with skill and great spirit,” says Lindy Van Alstine, their coach. In their opening game against King’s-Edgehill School, they won by three goals, with a final score of 4-1. The team was evenly matched in their second game against Pickering College – literally – as it ended on a scoreless draw of 0-0.

Next up, the SMUS girls took on the team from The Study, a school in Montreal. Our girls made the entire school proud by keeping a tight hold on their goal and scoring four goals on their opposition, leading to a final score of 4-0. After their victory, the girls played Southridge School and missed out on the finals by one goal. After narrowly defeating SMUS 1-0, Southridge went on to win the tournament.

While out-of-province, the girls also got to take a team photo at Niagara Falls, after touring the natural wonder on the Maid of the Mist.
