Continuing on their way to the league’s top spot, the Deli defeated M&A Yukon Inc. 6-4 in a tight U13 game Wednesday at the Canada Games Centre.

Other than a tie last week, the Deli has won every game since a loss to The Co-Operators on November 3.

“They’re working more as a team,” said Deli coach Sharla Walsh. “They’re working on their passing; they’re talking out there.”

With neither team advancing by more than a goal until the final minutes, Deli’s Mitchell Read scored his second of three goals in minute 42 of the game, firing in a shot on a cross field pass to go up 5-4. Read then scored again two minutes later.

“We’ve been close in all of our games,” said Walsh. “It was a hard fought game, definitely … The kids played a great game; they played as a team.”

The Deli won the teams’ previous match 5-2 on October 27.

“We’re just lucky that four of our kids are just getting back from the flu,” said M&A coach Craig Worsford.

Motoring on despite a ball in the face, Tristan Walsh was named the Deli’s MVP.

“He had a great game and he took one in the face for the team,” said Walsh. “I think he was the only one who took one in the face tonight.

“He really worked for the ball tonight.”

M&A’s MVP was Megan Jensen.

“She’s always steady in defence,” said Worsford. “She likes defence.”

Will Rees had a big game for the Deli, scoring two goals while teammate Anja Aird also put one on the scoreboard.

M&A’s goals were scored by JJ Paul, Aston Schaber and two by Mike Bennett.

Wintemute Electric edges out win over Dirkbuilt

After falling behind 2-0, Dirkbuilt’s U11 team fought back to tie the game 2-2. However, it was all for not as Wintemute’s Jude Lemoine scored his second goal with less than a minute to play to give his team a 3-2 win Wednesday at the Canada Games Centre.

“It was a nail-biter most of the game,” said Dirkbuilt coach Syd Cannings. “They’re a really good passing, scoring team.”

The previous match up also went to Wintemute with a score of 5-2.

“Last time was our first game of the season,” said Cannings. “They got ahead and we did the old collapse thing.”

High-energy play by Dirkbuilt’s Quintessa Maltais landed her the MVP honour.

“She was good going both ways,” said Cannings. “She was passing a lot up front; I like to see that.”

Katarina Fekete, who scored for Wintermute, was named her team’s MVP.

Tristan Rentmeister and Alexandra Maltais scored Dirkbuilt’s goals.

Underhill repeats success against Physio Plus

After defeating Physio Plus early in the season, U11’s Underhill came out on top in their second encounter too, winning 6-5.

Trading leads throughout the game, Underhill’s Mustafa Sayid broke a 5-5 tie with five minutes left to give his team the win.

“It was a well-played game for everybody,” said Underhill coach Peter Grundmanis. “We went ahead at the end, so I guess we’re pretty pumped.”

Mathew Barrett was named Underhill’s MVP for the game.

“He was our goalie in the first half and then was stellar on defence at the end,” said Grundmanis.

“There’s some pretty good rivalries between these teams,” said Grundmanis. “The kids know each other and like to do well against each other, so the kids always look forward to playing that team.”

Mic Mac Toyota builds off of early goals

It didn’t take long for Mic Mac Toyota to get all the goals they needed. In less than five minutes, Mic Mac’s Liam Dinn twice found the back of the net, to put his team up 2-0 en route to a 5-1 win over Goal Done Contracting in U11 soccer.

“That got us off on the right foot,” said Mic Mac coach Ed van Randen.

Ryan Macdonald scored for Done early in the second to put his team within one at 2-1. However, Luka van Randen also picked up a pair of goals, before Niko Rodden added one more for Mic Mac late in the game.

Kelsey Armstrong was named Done’s MVP, while Chloe Turner-Davis shared the honour on the Mic Mac side.

“Chloe just played a super strong game,” said van Randen. “She always plays as hard as she can and she’s a great player to have on the squad. Tonight she made the difference.”
