U14 A Girls Take Gold in Ancaster!
Submitted By Danielle Byers on Thursday, June 13, 2019
The U14 A Girls took home the Ancaster Heritage Cup for their age division the first weekend of June.  The team led by Steve McCall and Jennifer White worked hard with some close nail biting games to win.

The girls opened up play on Saturday against local nemesis Waterloo United, and that game ended in a disappointing 1:1 tie.  This game proved to be a critical later on in the tournament, and goal differential would come into play. 

Up next they played the Burlington Bay Hawks and won 2:1.   

At the end of the day, Kitchener and Waterloo were tied in points, but Waterloo led on goal differential.  This created a critical game on Sunday morning in which Kitchener would need to beat Hamilton Croatia by a 3 point differential. 

Sunday's games would be shortened to 25 minutes due to rain delays the previous day, making it even more difficult to try and score as many goals as needed to overcome the goal differential Waterloo held over Kitchener.

As the game started, the coaches, team and the parents were hungry to move onto the playoff game.  However,  the first goal wasn't scored until 10 minutes in, and the team only had a sliver of hope that they could score at least 2 more goals in the time left.  With the Waterloo United team looking on, the team scored another goal and another!  Now they were tied on goal differential, and if the game ended like this they would go to penalty kicks.  No one wanted this, so the team was ecstatic when a 4th goal was scored to clinch their spot in the playoff game against the Oakville Wild. 

The Oakville Wild proved to be a difficult test, but Kitchener was victorious with a score of 2:1, and the team brought home the gold cup!
