Titans go down in record books

News Nov 06, 2009 Ancaster News

The Ancaster Titans U15 girls capped off a great season and were rewarded for all of their hard work by finishing as the South Region Soccer League, First Division League champions.

The team created a little bit of history along the way by becoming the first Ancaster team to win two SRSL League championships following their U13 Second Division title in 2007.

After a two and three start in the League Cup, the girls responded with an impressive streak of 10 wins, a loss and tie to win the League championship with two games to go. This left the team with an overall league record of 12-5-1 and a three-point win over the second- place Milton Magic.

In tournament play, the girls had a team best semi-final performance at the West Niagara Invitational Tournament in May and a dominating championship win at the Gates Youth Soccer Tournament in Rochester, N. Y. Overall, the team’s record in 32 games was 21-9-2, with 71 goals and 45 allowed.

Coaches Paul Buchanan, Hugh Caughey, Ron Morrison and team manager Cory Bradley are proud to be associated with such a great bunch of young ladies.

Led by Nicole Morrison and Kate Caughey, and ably supported by Victoria Pappas, Adriana Kisic and Hayley Buchanan, the Titans formed the most dominant forward line-up in the league.

The mid-field, headed by captain Rachael Holmes, with great support from Michelina Amodio, Maggie MacDonald, Melanie Palvolgyi, Katherine Roberge and Julia Shen, dominated the centre of the park.

As prolific as the Titans were on offence, they were just as stingy defensively, with assistant captains Haley Fitzpatrick and Ally Scione anchoring the defence with great support from Lauren Bott, Stefanie DiSimoni, Harley Morrison and Michelle Ogrodnik. In addition to their strong defensive play, their quick and accurate clearing passes led to many scoring opportunities.

The team was also fortunate to have Heather Bradley, who has developed into one of the best keepers in the league, and some great technical instruction from Mladen Vugrinicek and Stefan Scione. Callups Rebecca Lepore, Taylor Accursi, Brianne Granatier, Kyla Carroll and the four “mighty mite” U13 Girls Titans — Rachel Webber, Jackie Wilkinson, Emma Buchanan and Katie Nelson — ensured the team didn’t miss a beat when faced with absences due to injuries and vacations.

The Titans would like to thank their parents, Dan Biancucci’s U17 Girls Elite team, Bob Wilcox and his team from Steeltown Boxing, and Lou Nagy and Ancaster Soccer Club for their support.
