Ottawa TFC U15 girls team captures ERSL Cup

The Ottawa TFC soccer club went into the ERSL Cup finals on Sunday with three chances to walk away with the coveted trophy. The U14 Premier boys team, the U13 Premier girls squad and the U15 girls team all had high hopes going into the season-long tournament finale, but in the end it was only the U15 girls team that emerged victorious.

The U14 Premier boys team lost 2-1 to St. Anthony and the U13 girls squad suffered a 6-0 loss at the hands of the Ottawa South United which finished the season with a perfect 15-0-0 record in league and tournament play.

The U15 girls were the last hope Ottawa TFC had at winning an ERSL Cup final in 2019. They got off to a meteoric star when Nora Ghie scored off a corner kick with the game barely two minutes old.

After Seaway Valley scored to tie the game in the 32nd minute, Ottawa TFC took the lead for good eight minutes later on a goal by Sofia Xenos.

Insurance markers were added by Ghie and Gabrielle Birch to make the final score 4-1 in favour of the home side.

The Cup victory salvaged what had been a disappointing regular season for the U15 squad which placed fourth in the ERSL standings with a 7-1-4 record.

Their biggest win of the year came against Ottawa St. Anthony in the semi-finals of the ERSL Cup.

St. Anthony finished the regular season at the top of the standings with a 10-0-2 record and they were the number one seed heading into the ERSL Cup tournament.

The semi-final win gave TFC all the confidence they needed heading into Sunday's final.

In other action on Sunday, the Ottawa Gloucester Hornets were 0-for-2, losing both of the finals they appeared in. The club's U15 Premier boys team lost to St. Anthony as did the U14 Premier girls team which was going for the difficult double after capturing the regular season title with a 12-2-0 record.
