CS Lakeshore wins U-16 Cup girls championship
Posted on 29 October 2016 in ↳ U-17 Cup
CS Lakeshore won the U-16 Cup girls title at the 2016 Sport Chek National Championships. The Québec club won the national final 2:1 over Ontario winners Woodbridge Strikers, with Lakeshore's Osamede Iyare scoring both goals in the victory.
The 29 October match was played in Kingston, Ontario, less than three weeks after the initial Teck Finals date was postponed after heavy snow conditions made it impossible to play the final in Lethrbdige, Alberta. On 22 October, the boys final was played in Saskatoon with Edmonton Juventus winning 2:0 over Winnipeg Bonivital SC.
Iyare scored the opening goal on a penalty in the 16th minute. Woodbridge countered just three minutes later when Chloe Zomparelli equalised in the 19th minute. Iyare then scored the winning goal in the 65th minute, with Woodbridge unable to equalise before the end of the match.
In the second half when the score was still even 1-1, Woodbridge's Brigitta Pulins and Andrea Tyrrell combined well on a chance that went just wide. Late in the match down a goal, Zomparelli had a chance that went just over the crossbar on a dangerous free kick.
Coached by Steven Donaldson, CS Lakeshore's winning side featured Chloé Dion, Myriam Le Quoc, Shyanne Wylie Gordon, Mathilde Lefebvre Lalande, Wayney-Natasha Balata Nguenign, Rafaela Mazzone, Charlotte Larrivée, Osamede Iyare, Olivia Mazzarello, Marie-France Pilon, Kayla Donaldson, Stefanie Kouzas, Latifah Abdu, Jessica De Filippo, Caroline Gubernat, Aleya Napoleoni, Lara Kazandjian, and Elizabeth Mailhot.
