June 25, 2012 


Sarnia Spirit U14 WOYSL Soccer Team hosted the Ontario Cup Tournament round this last weekend. In game one the Spirit played Brams United, ranked as one of the best teams in Ontario. Brams scored early to take a 1-0 lead and Cassy Forte headed home a goal for the Spirit just before half time.
"It was a good game they are a L1 team, one of the top 10 teams in Ontario so we were close" said head coach Kevin Simmonds "we are still a young team and understanding on how to defend and once we get that and play with a bit of a presence it's going to be a really good team"

In the second half, Brams scored two quick goals. Kelly Hodgins scored on a direct free kick for Sarnia to close the gap to 3-2. Sarnia pressed for the final fifteen minutes and were unlucky not to tie the game.
In game two, Sarnia defeated Windsor Polonia 1-0 on a goal by Lauren Shaw. Cassy Edlington with the shutout.

In game three, Sarnia went down 3-0 to Oakville and roared back to score goals by Kristy Hodgins and Cameron George. A late penalty given to Oakville sealed the game and Oakville scored a deserved 4-2 win.
The Spirit now travel to Toronto this weekend to play in the International Robbie Soccer Tournament. Calgary, Montreal, Buffalo-New York, Pickering, Scarborough, East York, and North York Cosmos are in their group.
