The under-twelve soccer team represented themselves very well in their tournament at Pine Glen on Tuesday. Anthony and Aidan scored a goal each in our opening match giving us a 2-1 win over Sherwood Heights Kennedy. In our second match, despite some stellar saves by Alp and solid defence from Vibhu, Jecca, Inaya and Phillip, we couldn't find the back of the net and lost 2-0. Not to be deterred, our third match was our best of the day with a goal apiece from Naomi and Anthony, and a hat trick from Aidan. Emily and Martha handled the midfield, and let Charlie mind the net. Fired up from our 5-1 win, we entered our final match of the day. Alina and Alp put some great passes forward, and Kendall intercepted a couple of balls, but it wasn't enough to topple TFS as they were victorious by a score of 3-1. Aidan's lone goal does not give justice to the amount of shots pinging off the crossbar or saved by the opposing keeper in our final match.
Ms. Stedman and Ms. Woodward would like to thank all of the players for their sportsmanship and hard work. Ms. Woodward is looking forward to some familiar faces at Friday's Ultimate practice at 7:30 am on the back field!
