The Grade 6 soccer team attended our end of season finals at De La Salle on Saturday. Placed on the strong side of the draw the odds of making the final were against us.
Our opening game against Pickering College showed how our team was determined to end our season on a high. Three goals and a clean sheet were enough to claim a victory. Crestwood 3 – 0 Pickering
The second game was against the hosts and favourites for the tournament. This would be our toughest test. With some tough lucks and questionable calls we had a high hill to climb. After a timeout, Crestwood regrouped and rallied. We fought our way back into the game with an equalizer. Soon after we gained the advantage with the goal of the season. A wonderful cross from Johnny for Griffyn to jump and head the ball home. Crestwood 2 – 1 DLS.
The final was against Crescent B. Crestwood came out fast and was quickly in the lead. But Crescent struck back with two breakaway goals. 1 – 2 advantage Crescent at the half. The second period was frustrating for Crestwood as chance after chance narrowly missed. Then the breakthrough goal to tie the game and the confidence came back. Two more goals sealed the well-deserved win. Crestwood 4 – 2 Crescent B.
