sean Jun 2, 2017 - 12:37pm

The Holy Trinity Falcons 'AA' senior girls soccer team fell this morning 7-4 to a powerhouse squad, the Holy Trinity Tigers from Bradford.

The Falcons entered the game as a wounded lot, with one player on crutches and another hobbled by a knee injury.

Nonetheless, they somehow managed to score four times against a team that hadn't allowed a goal in its previous two matches. Sniper Melissa Gilligan found the target for three of her team's goals, while Stephanie Leask notched one.

The last game of the round robin is just underway in North Bay, where the Falcons are playing the Father Bressani Eagles from Woodridge. A win will get HT back to the .500 mark, but unfortunately, they won't advance to the playoff round, as the top two seeds in their pool have already been determined.
