Soo City United Floors U14 Girls left no doubt in the minds of GTA teams as to their level of play over the weekend. Head Coach Anthony Romano’s squad was well prepared for battle as they left their mark during the 2019 Indoor Ontario Cup held in Vaughan Ontario.
The team would play both championship finalists in tight contests.
Darlington Energy would be the first team to realize the strength of the Sault team. Alexa Naslovar’s two goals would catapult SC United to their first win of the 8-team tournament. Mikayla Tremblay would post the shut out in their first tournament of 2019.
Isabella Fata’s lone goal against Brampton Brams 05A Bandits would be all it took to escape with a tie. Game 3 proved to be a fierce match as SC United tied eventual finalists Erin Mills Eagles in a 1-1 tilt. Gabriella Giordano would find the back of the net in the last game of round robin play leaving SC United with a 1-0-2 record.
SC United would advance to the semi final and meet up to face Caledon in a much anticipated rematch of the 2018 Ontario Cup Final. Aleya Dumanski would bury one to provide SC United with the early lead. Caledon would battle back to take the lead early in the second half before the speedy Fata would score on a breakaway to tie the game for a second time. With less than 3 minutes remaining, Caledon put away the go-ahead marker and advance to the finals where they would eventually down Erin Mills.
Along with Romano, associate coaches Carlo Spadafora and Marcel Giordano, as well as team manager Tricia Killoran expressed extreme pride in the abundance of heart and fight the girls exhibited throughout the weekend.
