NORTH DURHAM: It was another fantastic week for the North Durham United Football Club competitive rep teams, as the boys & girls came away with great results and efforts. The three girls teams went a perfect 3-0 as they climb in their respective league standings.
Coach Anthony Corey's U13G squad went on the road to Peterborough, and came away with a 3-2 victory.
Jessica P, Ashley F, and Jill M hit the back of the net for the Amico sponsored squad, in what was a high energy match with plenty of chances for both sides.
The U14G vaulted into second place with a convincing 4-0 win at Port Hope.
Four different players found the goal as Talia S, Nikki S, Emma M and Jessica T provided all the goals needed for the three points. A well deserved shutout was secured by keeper Faith S.
The historically successful U15G, sponsored by Silverlight Masonry Ltd, travelled to Oshawa for a big matchup against the Turul.
The game was a seesaw battle from start to finish, but a big goal from Epsom's Martina Magnante gave the girls in gold and black the win. The disciplined and skilled squad has yet to concede a goal in league play this year, as they look to continue with their perfect record.
The always resilient U17B lost a hard fought match to their visitors from West Rouge. The game was a physical and mental test for the younger team from North Durham, and they passed with flying colours.
Jordan Brown, another Epsom resident, played a passionate game in goal for the NDUFC group. It was Jordan's first rep league game he has ever played as goalie, and he made some terrific saves, stopped a penalty shot, and showed his physical strength time and again.
Utica's Liam Wilks scored on a perfectly taken penalty shot, as he nears the top of league scoring. Well done to all of coach Cole's players and their parents for showing team unity and class, in a game that the officials seemed to have lost control of by the second half.
TFC came out with their strongest possible lineup, last Saturday at home, and dominated the DC United visitors. The score ended 2-0 for the Reds, but it could have easily been more of a spread, as over 28,000 supporters enjoyed the atmosphere at BMO.
I would like to here from the coaches/managers of the NDUFC younger teams, as well as any interesting news from the house leagues in Uxbridge, Scugog, and Brock; firstname.lastname@example.org
