Championship Weekend: Day One Results

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.

2016-11-08

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

Spring champions crowned

RELEASE

Our 2015 Academy League Spring Season wrapped up July 19th and six teams booked their tickets into the Academy Cup Finals to be held November 14-15, 2015 at Centennial Stadium in Toronto.

FC Durham led the way with three titles as their U14, U15 & Sr. Girls Squads topped their respective divisions. Power FC, Eurostar FA and 1v1 Soccer FC took the U16M, U17M and U20 Spring titles respectively.

FC Durham U14M went a perfect 10-0-0 in the spring season, not allowing Toronto Skillz to make up any ground after defeating them 6-4 early in the season.  They put in a dominating performance, finishing with a +41 goal differential.

The U15M Division was a close affair, with three teams finishing within two points of 1st place.  FC Durham once again took home the silverware, finishing one point up on Pro Stars FC and two points up on Master’s FA.

Power FC prevented FC Durham from adding another title by finishing top of the U16M Division. A late season victory over 2nd place FC Durham ensured the Cup would head to Power FC.

It was another dominant performance in the U17M Division – this time by Eurostar FA, who ran the table with a 10-0-0 record.  Sigma FC were there closest rivals, finishing seven points back. As a result of this performance, Eurostar will play the Fall season in the U20M Division.

The U20M race went down to the wire as a 3-1 victory over Sigma FC clinched the title for 1v1 Soccer FC. These teams, along with 2nd place Rush Canada, were separated by only four points at the end of the season.

FC Durham White were deserving winners of the Senior Girls Division after an impressive undefeated Spring Season.  They finished seven points clear of 2nd place Rush Canada.

The Fall season kicked off July 25 and will run until November 8, 2015.  Along with the above divisions, SAAC has also introduced an U20 Women’s Division for the Fall, with the hopes of having it as a full-year Division in 2016.
