The Cumberland Cobras put on an impressive performance at the soccer club’s annual Snakebite Tournament at Millennium Park on June 23-25, both on and off the field.

Tournament organizers were left scram-bling when not one, but two electrical storms interrupted play on the final day. Despite the fireworks play eventually resumed and champions were crowned in all five divisions.

Two of the titles were won by local teams starting with the U12 boys team which played up and age group and won the U13 Tier 2 final 6-0 over the Glengarry Hearts.

Fritz Lalonde scored a hat trick for the home side, while Vardy St. Fleur, Elijah Godfrey and Antwaan Miller added a goal each.

The boys U15 team won the U15 Tier 2 final 1-0 over the Russell Raiders thanks to a goal from Damon Smith who scored the only marker of the game.

Two other teams made the finals, but had to settle for silver.

Maya Da Costa scored the lone goal for the U13 girls team which played up a level and lost 2-1 to Lakeshore United in the U13 Tier 2 final, and the U13 Level 4 boys team lost 1-0 to the Raiders.

In other action in last month, the Cobras U13 academy Elite team lost 7-2 to St. Anthony in the second round of the Ontario Cup.

The 2003 Girls Elite Team competed in the preliminary round of the Ontario Cup tournament in Richmond Hill and won all three of their games while outscoring their opposition 18-1.

They began their quest for an Ontario Cup by defeating Toronto Mooredale Lightning 6-0. They then beat Innisfil Stampeders 3-0 and finished things by crushing the Oak Ridges Knights 9-1.

The girls will now be moving on to the next round which will take place July 21 to 23 in Paris, Ontario.

In other Cobra news the U14 Academy girls team won gold at the Ottawa Icebreaker tournament in the U15 division in late May. They proved the title was no fluke by winning the final in emphatic fashion 4-0.
