Submitted By Danielle Byers on Tuesday, October 09, 2018
Ontario Regional Championships were held this past weekend at the University of Guelph, where 4 teams from their respective leagues faced off against other league Champions. After 3 hard fought games, the U16 Girls Academy team finished their season as Regional Finalists!

Regional Champions are won by the team with the most points accumulated at the end of the weekend.  Points are given for wins(6pts), ties(1), goals(1pt per goal up to 3) and shut outs(1pt).  

The first game of the weekend to kick off the tournament for the U16 Academy Girls team was at 9:30pm Friday evening.  Despite the frigid temperatures, the team played very well.  Many missed chances including several crossbars, and most notably a cross bar just before the final whistle.  The girls fell short with a 2-1 loss. (1 Goal - Sasha Marikano).  

Saturday brought warmer weather with the Girls needing a win to keep their hopes alive.  In their second match versus Oshawa, the team found the back of the net 4 times with goals from Alexa, Lexi, Inari and Sasha.  A 4-0 win gave the team much needed points to put them back in first place in their group.  

The final matches between KSC Academy Girls vs. Oakville and Oshawa vs. Kingston, were held at the same time.  This made for an interesting situation as all teams were close in points.  The Championship was up for grabs!  The game versus Oakville again had many opportunities to score, but the girls were held to a 1-1 tie (1 Goal - Lexi Kroeker), while on the other field Oshawa edged their opponents with a 2-1 victory.   Oshawa the team the girls defeated 4-0 the night before went home with the gold, while the KSC U16 Academy Girls with their excellent performance over the weekend came home as finalists.  

The girls may of ended their season this past weekend, but they're all motivated to start training for 2019 with their goal of attending Nationals next season in mind.   Congratulations ladies on another successful season for the Kitchener Soccer Club Academy Program!
