Written by: Matthew Pedias

SAAC’s Championship Weekend at Centennial Stadium was a huge success. We would like to take this time to thank all SAAC Academies who put in a tremendous amount of work in both on and off the pitch the entire season and especially preparing for SAAC Championship Weekend. We congratulate all of you on a tremendous season and are already looking forward to seeing you again in the Spring.

U15 Male:  vs. 

The opening match of Championship Weekend kicked off with Spring Champions (Toronto Skillz) and Fall Champions (Rush Canada) battling it out for the U15M Academy Cup. It was a very tense game, as neither team was able to find the back of the net in regulation time. Thus, going straight to penalty kicks. In the end, Rush Canada won 5-4 on penalties, with the final moment being captured below. SAAC congratulates both teams on a spirited affair! Great match.

U16 Male: vs. 

Next up, Spring Champions (ANB Futbol) took on Fall Champions (Power FC) in the U16M Academy Cup Final. After a scoreless first half, ANB stormed out with two goals and seemed to put the game out of reach. However, Power responded quickly after with a goal of their own. The final moments were exhilarating as Power attempted to find the tying goal, but ANB were able to hang on and secure a 2-1 victory. SAAC congratulations both teams on a great match!

U17 Male: vs. 

We follow that up with Spring Champions (FC Durham) who took on Fall Champions (Sigma FC – B2) in the U17M Academy Cup Final. FC Durham opened the scoring moments before the end of the first half, then added to their lead early in the second half! Sigma FC kept the game close with a goal shortly after that to bring them within one, but FC Durham quickly responded put the game out of reach shortly after and came out with a 3-1 victory to claim the U17M Academy Cup! Congratulations to both academies on their respective trophies.

U20 Male: vs. 

Finally, we wrapped up ‘Day One’ of Championship Weekend with Spring Champions (Sigma FC – B1) taking on Fall Champions (ANB Futbol) in the U20M Academy Cup Final. An absolutely enthralling match that came down to the wire! Sigma FC went ahead early, but ANB responded with three consecutive goals. Sigma FC then cut into the lead shortly after, making it 3-2 with just over 20 minutes to play. ANB seemed to seal the victory after going up 4-2, but Sigma FC was not going down without a fight. They pulled one back in the dying minutes off of a corner kick, and now it’s 4-3! However, ANB stayed composed and were able to lock down the win and take home the U20M Academy Cup.

Congratulations to all SAAC Academy teams and we look forward to another successful season next year! Enjoy the break.SAAC
