The Sports Bulletin: Issue V

unnamed

First XI Soccer

Result: 10 – 0 Win vs. De La Salle

Scorers: Mortimer (2), Shaw (3), Birman, Taylor, Colangelo, Dunn

Synopsis: In perhaps the most predictable fixture of the week, the Blues finished the season undefeated with a statement win over De La Salle heading into the playoffs this week. Kal Shaw (C, IB2), broke the all-time First XI Soccer scoring record of 21 goals, and just for fun added a couple more to take his tally to 24 on the season.

JV Soccer

Results: 1 – 4 Loss vs. TFS; 1 – 3 Loss vs. LCS

Scorers: Tanner; Tanner

Synopsis: The Blues were brought down to earth with two crushing defeats in a week. Having gone undefeated, the squad let down their guard at the TFS mini-field, falling behind early. In an evenly matched affair against Lakefield, defensive mistakes and a lack of finishing quality mean that the Blues have to travel for their quarterfinal fixture. Flynn Tanner (IB1) was one of the lone bright spots, netting a goal in both matches, while Nicolas Savoy (IB2) was his usual play-making self.

U16A Soccer

Result: 2 – 3 Loss vs. RSGC

Scorers: Goldhar, Cooper

Synopsis: The Blues narrowly lost to the surprising league leaders ‘Royal’ St Georges, with strong performances from midfielders Hilli Goldhar (FY) and Sean Langlois (FY). The Blues will play away at St Mikes on Wednesday on the way to the grocery store.

U16B Soccer

Results: 4 – 1 Win vs. CPC; 6 – 3 Win vs. LCS

Scorers: Peon, Velji, Turner, Shoichet-Bartus; Turner (2), Sayani (3), Gonzalez

Synopsis: Finishing the season with flair, the B-team Beauties put home 10 goals in 2 games. With a respectable record of 2–2–1, and 7 points, it is a testament to how strong the league is (with 12 teams and only 6 advancing) that the Blues didn’t make the playoffs. An impressive feat for backup keeper Nic Gonzalez (FY) as he was able to score.

U14 Soccer

Result: 1 – 2 Loss vs. SMC (extra time)

Scorer: Kim

Synopsis: Needing extra time after a Jordan Kim (Y1) header and St Mike’s penalty, it wasn’t to be UCC’s day in the semi-final. A SMC goal later on meant a semi-final exit, and the end to an impressive season, with the Blues managing a 9–2–1 record.

Varsity Volleyball

Result: 1 – 3 Loss vs. Greenwood

Synopsis: Taking the first set with some ease, the Blues then dropped the following three to a revengeful Greenwood side. Notable performances some Jake Bradshaw (C, IB2), and Tyler Green (IB2) and Louis Jarvis (IB2) demonstrating superb managerial skills. The squad will travel for a rivalry playoff match against perennial underachievers Crescent this week.

U16 Volleyball

Result: 3 – 0 Win vs. RSGC

Synopsis: The Blues tore apart RSGC in straight sets, outscoring them 75-40 points in total. They will host Crescent on Tuesday.

JV Football

Result: 6 – 44 Loss vs. SMC

Scorer: Khavin

Synopsis: Tight-end Denis Khavin continued with his scoring ways, this time off a TD pass from QB Prince (FY). The UCC defence stepped up in the second half, shutting out their southern rivals, as they contemplated what in fact a ‘Kerry-Blue’ is. The Blues have their final regular season game against SAC for third place.

Varsity Football

Result: 17 – 20 Loss vs. SMC

Scorers: Power, Stevenson

Synopsis: A frustrating loss, as the Blues were unable to turn their dominance into points. A couple big plays from St Mikes, including a last second field goal, means the Blues will now have to beat SAC away from home in their playoff game on Wednesday. Strong performances on offence by speedsters Hunter Okabasu (IB2) and Clayton Jeffrey (C, IB2). On the other side of the ball, notable performances from the fearsome James White (IB2), Sevion DaCosta (IB1), and Sam Beqaj (IB2). Aidan Power (C, IB2) both threw and ran a TD.

Cross-Country

Notable Team Result: Midgets- 2nd Place at CISAAs

Notable Performances: Henry Gage (Y2), Carter McLean (Y2), Will McCreadie (FY)

Synopsis: The midgets had an incredible performance, finishing just behind St Mike’s to qualify as a team for OFSAA. On the senior side, the resilience of leaders Simon Higgins (C, IB2) and James Griffith (IB2) was on display, as they both battled injury to finish well. Will McCreadie (FY) had his best race of the season, qualifying individually for OFSAA.
