The St. Christopher Cyclones Senior Boys Soccer team captured a bronze medal at the 2012 OFSAA Boys ‘AA’ championships this past weekend in North Bay. 20 high school teams were represented at this event.

In game one of the tournament, Ryan Greenwood converted a penalty kick in the final 5 minutes as the Cyclones drew 1-1 with the #4 seed and WOSSAA champs, St.Mary’s Catholic Secondary School Warriors from Woodstock.
Later that day, Andrew Moxley, Corey Jackson and Darien Primeau scored as the un-seeded Cyclones shutout #6 seeded Ascension of Our Lord Secondary School Eagles from Peel 3-0, with Austin Spearman posting the clean sheet.
Day two of the tournament started with a 4-0 win over Timmins High and Vocational School. Goal scorers were Danielo Bucci, Corey Jackson, Mike Fazzalari and Darien Primeau. Spearman recorded the shutout.
Needing a win to capture first place in the pool, St.Christopher knocked off Jean Vanier Catholic High School Jaguars from York 2-0 with goals from Marcelo Villanueva and Nic Sproviero. Michael Rocca picked up the win in goal.
Friday night’s quarter-final game was a sudden-death matchup and the Cyclones would get an early second half goal from Corey Jackson to defeat St. Stephens Catholic Secondary School Royals from Bowmanville. Once again, Spearman would hold the fort to pick up the win.
Assuring themselves of a medal on Saturday, the Cyclones came out strong, dominating St.Andrew’s College Saints from start to finish, only to be defeated 1-0 by virtue of a penalty shot in the dying moments. The loss put the Cyclones in the Bronze medal game and they gave another strong effort, getting a first half goal by Nic Sproviero and a second half goal by Danielo Bucci to defeat the SWOSSAA champs from Cardinal Carter 2-0. Rocca played a terrific game in goal to preserve the win over the Cougars.
It was a terrific tournament for the Cyclones, scoring a total of 13 goals and allowing just two. The defense was anchored by Thomas Moxley, Pietro Restivo, Cliff Timmers, Ryan Greenwood and Matt Stewart.
This was the third time in 5 years that the Cyclones have medalled at OFSAA. In 2008 in Sarnia, they captured a silver medal, and in 2011 in Windsor they won gold. The team was coached by Richard Prudom, Angelo DiMuzio and Randy DaSilva.
