Sudbury school soccer season starts, just a few days late
by Randy Pascal
The start of the SDSSAA (Sudbury District Secondary Schools Athletic Association) soccer season might have been delayed by a few days, but it did little do diminish the inevitable competitiveness and intensity once teams finally took to the field at the
James Jerome Sports Complex last Friday.
Expected to contend this year, the Collège Notre-Dame Alouettes did not disapoint, kicking off the shortened spring/summer season with a 3-0 win over the Sacré-Coeur Griffons. Dante Corsi, Alex Rossini and Noah Lasorsa
all scored in support of the shutout netminding of keeper Hunter Adams.
The Lockerby Vikings seniors also hit the win column right out of the gate, edging the Confederation Chargers 3-2, thanks in part to a two goal effort from Tyler Dupont. Emmett Taillefer rounded out the scoring, while Colton
Blay and James Fournier replied for the Chargers.
The Confederation girls managed to even the score for the Valley East school, posting a 2-0 whitewash of the St Benedict Bears, as Kayleigh Coufal found the back of the net twice for the winners. Games continue this week, typically from 12:30 p.m.
right through to 7:00 p.m., Monday to Thursday.
