The Holy Trinity Falcons senior girls 'AA' soccer team completed the round-robin portion of last week's EOSSAA tournament with 2 wins, finishing first in their pool. The Falcons defeated Embrun and Thousand Islands, both by a score of 1-0. The goal scorers were Morgan Zappia in game one and Kelly Brissard in game two, while Madison Ruffo earned both shutouts.  

HT moved on to play Arnprior in the semifinal and once again was victorious, and punched a ticket to the EOSSAA final with a 1-0 victory. Lily Bacchiochi notched the goal, while Ruffo picked up her third shutout.

The final was a rematch of game one where the Falcons faced Embrun for the EOSSAA championship. The Falcons had to settle for silver, though, as their storybook season came to an end with a 3-1 loss.

With two victories in a Kingston today, the senior girls soccer team from Holy Trinity finds itself in good stead, finishing atop their pool with a 2-0 record. 

The Falcons, seeded first at the ‘AA’ tournament, scored a pair of 1-0 wins today.

St. Joseph's Panthers senior boys hold off Holy Trinity Falcons for soccer title

sean May 23, 2019 - 4:59pm

The senior boys soccer team at St. Joseph’s CSS once again claimed the SD&G championship in the 'AA' division, defeating the Holy Trinity Falcons, 5-2, on Wednesday. 

The Panthers finished the season 7-1-2 good for second place overall in the league (second to the unbeaten Glengarry Gaels who won the 'A' title in separate playoffs) and were favoured to win the game. 

HT capitalized on a couple of SJ turnovers to twice take leads. The Panthers applied great pressure all game and finally got a break on a penalty kick, awarded for a handball in the box. Braedan Levac buried it to tie the game, one of his three tallies of the match. 

At that point, the St. Joseph's onslaught saw the offence take charge, scoring three more. 

Other Panthers scoring in the game were Cole Lavigne and Hayden Charbonneau. 

The Panthers travel to Kingston next Tuesday and Wednesday, for EOSSAA at Queen’s University.
