Sarnia FC (Chelsea) Wins U10 District Championship

August 30, 2012

The Lambton Kent District Youth Soccer Association wrapped up their season in the U10 Division with two Sarnia teams competing in the Championship finals. In the Semi's - Sarnia FC Chelsea defeated Sarnia FC Aresenal and Sarnia FC Milan defeated the Chatham Attack to both advance to the finals.
On a beautiful night for soccer, the fields were full of spectators anticipating the opening kick-off. Both teams were anxious and a little nervous prior to the start. As the game began, both squads concentrated on defence. Limited scoring opportunities arose on both sides of the pitch. Stellar goaltending was visible from the two keepers Andrew Harron (FC Chelsea) and Jack Hutchinson (FC Milan) who kept offences in check. Chelsea played solid defence led by : Alex Newall, Dean Palimaka, Christian D'Agostini and Ivan Lange. The half closed out at a 0 - 0 draw.
It is games like these when you realize that the opening goal will make a huge difference in the strategy on the field. At the 45th minute of action, the tides would turn. Chelsea would pressure Milan deep in their end as a loose ball found its way back to defender Christian D'Agostini, who drove a hard shot on goal which rebounded to mid-fielder James Brown, who hammered it in for the opening goal. The goal would send a bolt of energy through the Chelsea offence which never looked back from that point on! Minutes later, Striker Mateo Troiani would dribble the ball around the Milan defence and blast it into the top right hand corner of the goal. With a two goal deficit, Milan was forced to open up the game and try to press forward. As they began to advance the ball, Chelsea would counter and often find themselves outnumbering the defence. On a goalmouth scramble a Milan defender would be called with the "hand ball". Chelsea forward, Mateo Troiani would be called upon to take the penalty kick! He did not disappoint as he calmly placed the perfect shot behind the Milan keeper. Jubilation erupted on the Chelsea bench as the boys knew they were close to closing the game! With Milan forcing play, all their players were now concentrating on offence. Chelsea forward, Jimmy Simpson would send the perfect through ball to an open Mateo Troiani. Troiani would slow things down and patiently dribble around the defence till he found some open space firing the ball in, notching the hat trick for the game! That goal would seal the victory as the final whistle blew ending a great season for Sarnia FC Chelsea. Awards were presented following the game.

A strong effort from FC Milan making them very worthy opponents as finalists!

Sarnia FC Chelsea would like to thank all parents, siblings, relatives and friends who supported the team throughout the season!!
