St. Peter Knights capture senior girls AAA soccer championship
By Fred Sherwin
May 31, 2019

The St. Peter Knights varsity girls soccer team won the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association AAA championship on Sunday with a dominating 4-0 win over the Sacred Heart Huskies.

Emily Hume scored twice for the Knights and Amelia Thompson and Emily Smith added a goal each.

Hume opened the scoring with a goal from just outside the penalty area that found the bottom corner of the net. Less than a minute later Knights keeper Anna Deambre made a difficult diving save to keep the Huskies off the score sheet.

As the play shifted back into the Huskies end, Hume delivered her second goal of the game with a booming shot that deflected off the bottom of the crossbar and into the net.

The score remained 2-0 in favour of the Knights until Thompson provided an insurance marker at the 19th minute of the second half.

The Knights' fourth goal was provided by Smith in the final minute of the game.

It was the school's first girls AAA soccer title in it's 27-year history. The senior boys team accomplished the feat in 2006 and went on to place fourth at the provincial championships.

Knights coach Ben Markatti says the girls team is the most talented squad he's coached since 2006 when he coached the boys team.

"We have strengths everywhere. Don't really have any weaknesses and they are used to playing at a high level," said Markatti.

Three members of the team (Clare Rea, Demambre and Peyton Fairchild) play in the Ontario Provincial Development League. Sheridan Michel is in the national program. And Hume will be playing at the University of Ottawa next year.

The team will have a couple days off before heading to the provincial championships which begin next Wednesday in Windsor.

Although the team is fairly young with only two Grade 12 seniors in the lineup, Markatti feels they have enough talent to vye for a medal.

"We'll be ready," says Markatti. "We'll have Sheridan back from the national camp and we have a very deep bench which is important we can potentially play seven games in three days."
