On Thursday, November 23, the soccer team played in the soccer tournament held at the Hangar in Downsview.
TC won their first three games by a combined score of 10-0. After the round robin games, TC finished 1st overall to set up a semi final against Prestige School. TC prevailed once more with a 3-0 victory.
The final game was set against CMS. TC opened the scoring with a quick goal, followed by a quick response by CMS. With the score tied 1-1, TC were pressing to find the go-ahead goal. With many chances saved by the CMS goalie, the game went into sudden death extra time. After one extra time the game was still tied 1-1. In the second extra time, with penalty shots approaching, a kick-in was played down the wing, the ball was crossed into the 18-yard box and with a striking blow, the ball was buried into the back of the net, TC were champions!
The player’s excitement was too much as they cheered and celebrated on the field. The skill and determination of these young players led to their crowning achievement.
Congratulations to the U12 Soccer Team for winning the Championship!
