The nightcap on day four at the Sport Chek National Club Championships U-16 Boys Cup was at King George V field. It featured Rafales de Sainte-Julie from Québec, who were looking for their first victory, against Unidad Regina from Saskaskatchewan.
The first half saw Sainte-Julie come out on a mission, to break their winless streak. It didn't take long for them to get on the board, when Midfielder Mathieu Gosselin notched their first goal only three minutes into the contest. They continued to play a strong possession game the majority of the first half, with their second goal coming in the 30th minute, when Anthony Bissonnette took a wonderful back-corner cross and buried it in the back of the goal.
Sainte-Julie would carry the two-goal lead into the break.
18 minutes in to the second half, Sainte-Julie's Philippe Seveno battled for a ball just in front of the goal line, gained possession, took a step past the sprawling Unidad keeper and put it in the open goal. This goal seemed to deflate a Unidad team that thought they might be able to battle back.
Sainte-Julie would go ahead 4-0 in the 65th minute when Gosselin hit a perfect, down-and-left, header to the back of the net.
Unidad kept Sebastian Breza from getting a clean sheet with a goal in the 69th minute by midfielder Mark Hetterly. However, it was too little too late for the team from Saskatchewan and the match would end 4:1.
Québec will play Manitoba tomorrow at 13:00 local time / 11:30 ET / 08:30 PT at Mount Pearl Upper. Manitoba was able to secure one point against Ontario earlier today, which secures at least second place in Group B.
