The Gloucester Hornets U15 Regional girls team downed the OSU Force 2-1 on Saturday to win the ERSL Cup, now they have a matching pair.

Many of the girls on this year's team were on the U14 squad last year that won the ERSL Cup in a game that had to be decided in penalty kicks.

On Saturday, they avoided the sudden death dramatics by taking care of business against an Ottawa South United team that had won all three of their previous match-ups -- and they did so without having to rely on their top scorer Sarah Jaworski, who the Force held in check for most of the game.

Kayla Ademek, whose only two previous goals came in a 7-2 win over the Nepean Hotspurs on June 22, scored the all important first goal on a lead pass from Nancy Duguay around the 15 minuts mark of the first half.

The Force managed to tie the score on a rare breakaway with about 10 minutes left to go in the half, but it was short lived as the Hornets came right back to score on a picture perfect free kick by Naomi Dussah.

Dussah took the kick from about 25 metres out and curled it around the human wall that was set up by the Force and into the top left corner.

At half-time, Hornets coach Michael Dussah, warned his players to be ready for the Force to unleash their full fury.

As the second half began, the first place Force threw everything they had at the Hornets in an attempt to score the equalizer, but they were unable to breakdown Gloucester's defence and the Hornets were able to weather the storm and go on to win the game.

For the Hornets, who finished the season in the middle of the ERSL standings with an 8-0-7 record, winning the Cup was provided the perfect ending to a sometimes frustrating season. Five of their losses were by one goal. They lost three times to the Force and twice each to the Cataraqui Clippers and the Ottawa Royals.

"We came out on the losing side against OSU three times, but two of the games could have gione either way and we problaby deserved to get at least a point out of them," Dussah said after Saturday's big win. "Today, the girls came out to play and they just wanted it more. It was one of the best games they played all season."
