Scoring four straight goals in the final 12 minutes of play, M&A Yukon Inc. took the lead and then the game in a 7-4 win over Titan Gaming in U13 soccer at the Canada Games Centre Wednesday.
After ending the first half tied 2-2, and then moving to a 3-3 tie, M&A briefly fell behind on a goal by Titan’s Chrissy Anderson—her second of the game—but then took control with a spree of goals.
“I think it’s just confidence—they gain and lose confidence,” said M&A coach Craig Worsford. “They just gained some and ran.”
M&A’s run was led by J.J. Paul, who scored three consecutive goals in the second half, including the game winner. Evan Hoogland was another multiple scorer with two goals while teammates Landon Worsford and Aston Schaber each produced one.
Playing without any subs on the bench, Worsford named his whole team as MVP.
“They all ran,” said Worsford. “They back checked and forechecked and passed—they played like a team.”
Emily Wilson scored Titan’s other two goals and grabbed her team’s MVP title.
“She had a really good game,” said Anderson. “She scored two goals and just played hard.”
Mic Mac narrowly avoids shut out
With two goals in the first half, followed by five in the second—including four from Chris Torgerson—Physio Plus rolled over Mic Mac Toyota 7-1 in U11 action Wednesday.
“Chris found his confidence to get four goals,” said Physio coach Charleen Torgerson.
“And Michelle Charlie got her first goals of the season, so she’s really pleased,” she added, speaking of the game’s final goal.
Down 6-0 late in the second, Mic Mac avoided the donut when Amy Parker took a pass out of the corner and put it off a Physio defender.
“It deflected off one of their players,” said Mic Mac coach Pat Ross, a substitute filling in for coach Ed van Randen. “I think they got two goals off deflections off our players. So they finally figured out the way to score is to bank it off one of the other team’s players.”
For her performance Parker picked up her team’s MVP honour.
“I’m not basing it on the goal,” said Ross “She was just working hard all game and she’s been hustling a lot and trying to help her teammates out—trying to get a good pass in front of the net.
“They’re all working hard to see if they can get each other goals. Sometimes I think that we should just work on getting goals.”
Physio’s first-half goals were scored by Brett Nichol and Karen Ou, while teammate Malcolm Muir got the MVP nod.
“He had solid defence and good passing tonight,” said Torgerson. “And positionally he played very well.”
