High School - OFSAA Day 2 and Playoffs

Day two at the OFSAA AAA soccer tournament in Hamilton continued a disappointing showing for both the Regiopolis-Notre Dame girls and a good comeback attempt that fell just short by the Sydenham boys.

All of the games were delayed by about 90 minutes due to the thunderstorms the previous day, and thus the first round of the playoffs was also delayed, this time to Saturday morning.

After the final games from Thursday were completed, including Regiopolis-Notre Dame's 1-0 loss to Northern, the Sydenham boys were first up at 11am against Crestwood.

High School - OFSAA Day 1

With day one in the books at the boys and girls soccer OFSAA tournament in Hamilton, both Kingston teams find themselves with fairly big hills to climb.

Sydenham Secondary School, at their first ever provincial tournament, found themselves matched up against the defending boys champions, Corpus Christi from Burlington in the Golden Horseshoe Athletic Conference (GHAC). Unfortunately, Sydenham lost by a 3-0 scoreline in the tournament opener at 9am.

The Regiopolis-Notre Dame girls kicked off at 10:30am, also against Corpus Christi, but did not fare much better, dropping the game with a 4-2 scoreline with Jessica Almeida scoring her first two goals of the season, the second early in the second half to tie things up at 2-2. Unfortunately, Corpus Christi scored twice in the last seven minutes of the game to take the victory.
