We had another strong week of results by the teams representing our North Durham United Football Club, as the boys and girls continue to impress.
The two youngest age groups competing in the Durham Regional Soccer League both had tough games over the last few nights and both came away with points.
The U13 Girls drew 2-2 with Peterborough City, as Angela W and Lucie C found the back of the net.
The team is sitting in third place, and is looking forward to finishing the season strong.
Ethan Cannon scored two more goals, as his U13 Boys squad beat Cavan 2-0.
The three points earned, pushes the team to within two points of the league leaders, with games still left in the schedule. As for young Ethan, he now is tied for league goal scoring, and feels there are still more left in his boots.
It was a action-packed, hugely successful, and very entertaining weekend, for the U17 Boys.
The team was involved in the Mississippi Invitational Soccer Tournament, held in Carleton Place, just outside of Ottawa, and after playing five grinding games over two days, the players earned the silver medal. The boys won three of four games before being edged out in the finals, but not without showing their usual determination and physical fair play.
Coach Mark Cole's team, which is generously sponsored by Trading Post Quality Foods, had to deal with injuries, heat, difficult competition, and some unusual officiating, to get into the championship match. There are eight players on the team that are original NDUFC members, so it was a great way to wind up the tournament season, for them and all their other teammates. Well done, to the players and parents, for another fun tournament that was a success on and off the field. The team would also like to thank manager Lisa Hoover for all the organization, and taking care of all the details needed, so that everyone had a memorable weekend.
Toronto FC keep winning and winning, and are well ahead of the pack in MLS league standings. As long as there isn't some kind of collapse, the Reds should win the regular season race before trying to claim their first MLS Cup in the playoffs.
