3 WSC Teams Open Season at U de M Tournament May 6

The U11M, U12M and U12F teams all participated at the Universite de Montreal Carabins tournament May 6th.  The tournament is an “ice-breaker” allowing the players to have some fun playing their first games of the season, and coaches to see their team in action and develop their coaching plan.  All the teams had a great experience playing against teams that we will not have a chance to meet during the regular season.  The Carabins hosted a well organised event, and thanks to our coaches for braving the rain.

U14 M Compete in Regional Cup

img_1196The Westmount U14 boys, already crowned Lac St Louis league champions,  travelled to Mascouche Saturday to represent Lac St Louis in the regional A cup. In the first game, the boys fought hard against a talented Laurentides team, with the game ending in a 2-2 tie after regulation. They proceeded to a shootout where they came away one goal short. img_1201

Following the Laurentides game,  the team built up their energy with the local delicacies…pancakes and waffles (no poutine) before returning to face the Repentigny Olympiques.

The game was played in   pouring rain against Repentigny, with the game ending in a 1-1 tie. Once again, going to penalties, it was  nailbiter. Ultimately the Olympiques came out on top  after 7 penalty shots.

img_1195Congratulations to the team for a winning season.  They scored a series of firsts: The first Westmount team to win the league and represent LSL at the regional championship.  Special thanks go to Aidan for travelling back from his new home in Hamilton to play in goal for the regional games.

U10 Girls 5 – Their Parents 4

img_9777The U10 Girls closed their season with a tightly fought win against their coaches and parents. Playing an unorthodox 14×14 format on a 7×7 field, the parent team entered the game overconfident and were soon put in their place by a more skillful (and much shorter) team.

The Girls took an early lead off a free kick by Julia which sailed  over the wall  and straight past the keeper (her dad).  The parents quickly equalised exploiting the long ball and no offside rule to score a couple of goals. The girls fought back, and with seconds to go, drew a controversial penalty kick.  The penalty was skillfully taken , fooling  the goalie passing close to the post leaving the girls ahead 5-4 at the final whistle.  Well played, girls!  A great way to close a fantastic season.
