KEM CEHAJIC Special to The Standard
NORTH DURHAM: All three girls competitive North Durham United teams, were road warriors this week, and had great results in games away from home.
The ever-improving U16 girls went to Newmarket, and came away with a 2-1 win.
Abigail MacDonald and Sierra Pettipas found the back of the net, and all the players worked hard for the big three points.
The U13 girls journeyed to Richmond Hill, and showed why they sit so high in league standings, as they drubbed the home team from York Region, by a score of 5-0.
A pair of goals, by Paige Deneve, were complimented with singles from Isobel Begg, Nikki Stewart, and Brittany Hackner.
The clean sheet brings the girls overall goals conceded average to just one per game. The club has a plus 25 goal differential in overall league games, which is quite a remarkable testament to the team play and organization of the girls.
After a big Cup win last week, the U14 girls continued their winning ways, with a 1-0 win in Peterborough against the Boom.
Emma Vandinther scored the lone goal of the game, as the NDUFC team, nicknamed the Stingers, vaulted into second place overall in the league table.
The team also competed in the Thornhill Challenge soccer tournament, over the weekend, and had another successful run. The girls went undefeated in group play, with three wins and a draw, before dropping a 2-0 semi-final match against a club from Niagara Falls.
Well done girls, this season has already been the most successful of any North Durham United team in history, and it looks like there is no stopping you, no matter who or where you are playing.
The always fun to watch, U16 boys, played an inspired match against Oshawa last week, and dropped a tough 1-0 result, against a team that has won every game they have played this year.
Top notch goalkeeping, by David Hoover, and hard work, by the players on the field, made for an exciting game.
The boys then had a special exhibition match, against the Uxbridge and Scugog house league players, last Sunday.
Only 11 players were available for the NDUFC rep team, but the boys did a great job, winning 3-0.
The match was very evenly played, with the house league players showing their skills and speed against the boys in gold and black.
Carter "can't miss" Cannon, Jordan Brown and Liam Wilks scored for North Durham, with a strong game played by the three-man-back of Griffin Anderson, Daniel Cehajic and crowd favourite Nathan McLennan.
Congratulations to Canada's National Womens Soccer Team! They beat Brazil 2-1, for the bronze medal at the Olympics. Captain Christine Sinclair, in her 250th team game, scored the winning goal for us, as the team won back-to-back Olympic medals.
TFC is flying high, after beating Philadelphia 3-1 on the road. Team players are all nearly healed, from previous injuries, and see themselves unbeaten in six games, fighting for first place overall.
