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.
