Congratulations to the Mentor U12 girls’ soccer team for their outstanding tournament last Wednesday as they took home the PSAA Championship! The girls played exceptionally well throughout the entire day. After winning their first game, the girls had a very tough match against Fern Hill Oakville, resulting in a 1-0 loss. From there, the girls battled their way through the rest of the games, winning 2 and tying 1 in round-robin play.
This advanced the girls to the semi-finals where they had a nail-biting match-up against Kingsway Christian School. With only 10 seconds remaining in over time, Rachel kicked in an amazing ball to Monique who set up Monica for a jaw-dropping game-winning goal. The girls moved on to the finals where they met 5 time returning champions Rotherglen. With two early goals, the girls had secured their victory with a final score of 2-1.
Rotherglen was absolutely relentless with their shots on goal, but Sam Ford was virtually a brick wall, stopping every single shot. Congratulations to all girls for an amazing and exciting tournament. Special mentions go to Monica and Monique for being scoring machines with 4 goals each; Rachel and Lexi for being incredible in every position that they were asked to play. All girls showed wonderful support for their team and the Mentor cheer was heard throughout the entire building.
Coaches Cipriano and Dziuryn would like to thank and congratulate all of the girls for such an amazing and dedicated season.
