Cobras U14 Academy girls team completes unforgettable season

The Cumberland Cobras U13 Academy girls team completed their 2017 outdoor season with a historical 5-day run earlier this month during which they won the U14 ERSL League championship and ERSL Cup playing up an age group, and became the first Cobras team in club history to win an Ontario Cup final.

The 5-day run started with a 2-0 win over St. Anthony Parmar \which enabled them to win the ERSL League championship by one point over the Kingston Clippers.

Members of the Cumberland Cobras U13 Academy team pose with the Ontario Cup and championship banner after winning the tournament final on Sept. 17. Members of the team include Elizabeth Vroom, Flavie Dubé, Alexi Virgo, Riley Bonadie, Jessica Boyle, Paige Robert, Rachel Vermaire, Devon Vermaire, Leane Turcotte, Peyton Fairchild, Lea Francoeur, Paige Lachambre, Vanessa Wynn, Amy Cassidy, Maya Galko and Yasmine Lange .

The opening marker was scored by Elizabeth Vroom off a corner kick in the first half. It was her first goal in regular season action – she scored in a first round ERSL Cup game on July 19 against the same St. Anthony team – and a replay of a non-goal earlier in the game that was ruled offside.

Jessica Boyle added an insurance marker for her sixth goal of the season.

The team had just two days to rest before traveling to Vaughan to take on the Oshawa Kicks in the U13 Ontario Cup final.

Heading into the championship game the Cobras had scored 17 times in their four previous tournament games without giving up a single goal.

They drew first blood against the Kicks on a penalty in the 28th minute that was awarded as a result of a hand-ball call in the Kicks’ penalty area. The job of converting the penalty kick was given to Vanessa Wynn who coolly deposited into the back of the Oshawa net.

The Cobras’ lead held up until early in the second half when Katharine Stewart broke Cumberland’s shutout streak on a great individual effort.

The deadlock didn’t last long, how-ever, thanks to the efforts of Cobras’ striker Riley Bonadie who took the ball down the wing before cutting back inside and burying a shot into the back of the Kicks’ net. She would add an insurance marker later in the half on a pass from Flavie Dubé.

With two titles already under their belts, the Cobras completed the championship trilogy on Sept. 18 with a 4-1 win over the Nepean Hotspurs to claim the U14 ERSL Cup on goals by Bondie, Boyle, Rachel Vermaire and Yasmine Ndakashami-Lange.

The win in their final game of the season improved their overall record in league and tournament play to 21-0-3 Cobras’ head coach Duane Bonadie heaped all the praise for the team’s success on the players.

“The girls worked really, really hard all year. They really deserve all the success they’ve had,” said Bonadie.

Although the team played at their own age level in the Ontario Cup, they played up an age group in the Eastern Ontario Soccer League and the ERSL Cup, making their accomplishments this year even more extraordinary.

They also played up at age group at the Robbey Soccer Tournament and the Tournoi de Granby, losing to the eventual winner in both tournaments.

Two other female Cobra teams also performed well this past season. The U16 team won the League Championship by eight points and was a runner up to the Gloucester Hornets in the ERSL Cup, and the U15 team lost the League title by a single goal.
