Hornets, Ottawa TFC clinch U14, U15 regional soccer titles

The Ottawa Gloucester Hornets and Ottawa TFC recently wrapped up their seasons by clinching the Eastern Ontario Soccer League U14 and U15 regional titles respectively.

The Hornets wrapped up their season with a 4-2 win over their east end counterparts on Sept. 5 to end their campaign with a 10-0-1 record. More importantly, it put them four points clear of their nearest rivals Ottawa City who have an 8-1-1 record with just one game remaining.

The Hornets opened the scoring in their final game against Ottawa TFC with a pair of goals from Shauna Martin and Eliana Bonyaka Gaelle.

Ottawa TFC then narrowed the deficit to 2-1 with a goal from Eleni Magneron in the 38th minute.

It didn’t take long for the Hornets to respond, however, as Bonyaka Gaelle would re-establish their two-goal advantage with a strike in the 44th minute, just one minute shy of the halftime break.

The score remained 3-1 in the Hornets’ favour until the 24th minute of the second half when Ottawa TFC’s Sienna Romeo scored to reduce the deficit back to one. Unfortunately for TFC, that would be as close as they would get.

In the final second, Bonyaka Gaelle managed to complete a hat trick by scoring a goal on what would turn out to be the final kick of the game.

All told, the Hornets scored a whopping 61 goals in 12 regular season games while being scored upon an even dozen times.

The Ottawa TFC U15 regional girls team wrapped up their season last Thursday with a 2-1 loss to the Hornets at Scala Park in Avalon. Fortunately, they had already clinched the league championship on Aug. 30 with a 1-0 win over second place Kingston-Belleville. Their lone goal was scored by Audrée Billings.

Taking into account the Hornets game, the U15 team allowed just nine goals in 12 games, with seven of those games ending with a clean sheet. Keeper Sarah Laplante was in net for six of those shutouts and Jade Denoncourt was in net for the other one.

Offensively, they managed to score 27 times. Kayla Alves lead the way with seven goals, while nine other players managed to get their names on the score sheet, showing how well-balanced the team is.
