Newfoundland Derby highlights even day of matches at Sport Chek National Championships

Posted on 7 October 2016 in National Championships

A hotly contested Challenge Trophy Newfoundland derby in front of 2,000 fans at King George V Park in St. John’s highlighted Day 2 at the Sport Chek National Championships. Hard fought was the tone of the day as the majority of games saw a two or less goal difference. Ontario, Alberta and Quebec continue to lead the way across the country as all teams have played their opening match. Samantha Hayes of Ontario’s Kitchener Spirit leads all competitors across all competitions with five goals in two matches while goalkeeping continues to be vital with 21 teams yet to concede a goal. Matchday 3 kicks off on 7 Oct with many teams clinging to stay in contention to play for national pride on TECK Finals Day 10 Oct.


The first four clubs are through to the Quarter-finals of the 2016 Sport Chek National Championships Challenge Trophy finals. Edmonton Scottish SC and Fredericton Picaroons Reds from Group B as well as Saskatoon HUSA Alumni and St. Lawrence Laurentians from Group D will all advance to the final eight on Saturday 8 October.

Groups A and C are still undecided after two days, with the four teams from those groups to advance when the group stage wraps up on Friday 7 October.

A sunny day, little wind and temperatures into the high teens made it a gorgeous day at the 2016 Sport Chek National Championships in Mount Pearl and South Conception Bay, Newfoundland Labrador. Four more matches - two from each group - were played on 6 October, the second day of the Jubilee Trophy women's competition.

Results in group A action all but spelled out who will be playing for the medals later on in the tournament. Edmonton Northwest United survived a scare from Saskatoon Impact FC, but won 2:0. Richmond FC took care of business by beating Fredericton Picaroons Reds 1:0.

In group B it was a heavy-weight tilt between Scarborough GS United and Royal-Sélect Beauport that captured the attention on this day. Neither team could find the breakthrough winner as it ended in a 0:0 draw. Finally, it was an all Newfoundland affair with Holy Cross SC getting the better of CBS Kirby United, winning 1:0 in a rematch of last month's provincial final.
