U10 Girls Team 1 Complete Perfect Season

The Aurora U10 Girls Team 1 completed the 2011 YRSL competitive schedule with a perfect 15 wins, 0 losses and 0 ties record, outscoring the oppostion 94 - 4 with 11 shutouts along the way. This is the third consecutive year this team has accomplished this tremendous achievement. 2011 will be remembered as the first time in the team's history where players sustained significant injuries reducing the team roster for long stretches during the season. The Stingers were well prepared to handle any adversity that came their way due to the incredible character and talent of each and every member of the team. Thanks to Coach's Brent Unger and Geoff Uyeno and Manager Mona Dane.

Congratulations Girls!
You are great ambassadors of the AYSC
and you should be very proud of such an incredible accomplishment.



U9 Girls Team 1 - Thornhill Challenge Champions

U9 Girls Team 1 - Thornhill Challenge Champions

The August 20-21 weekend marked a first for the 2002 Girls Team 1. The young ladies were competing in their final tournament of the year, the Thornhill Challenge Cup. The U9’s are a talented bunch, but development has been the main focus for a large part of their first 2 years as a Rep level team. To date, the girls had never won a tournament competition. While this was no regret to anyone on the team, it doesn’t mean there wasn’t a burning desire inside the players to lift their first trophy.

On Sunday August 21st, the 14 girls did just that. After playing 4 matches over the course of the weekend, the girls found themselves in a great position to win the tournament. They went 3-0 in the round-robin stage outscoring their opponents with 11 total goals for and just 1 against. After winning their pool, the girls went straight to the semi-finals vs. the Guelph Royals. The girls of Aurora completely dominated play winning the match 3-1. Had it not been for an outstanding Guelph goalkeeper, the score line would have been much larger.

The girls went on to the championship game vs. Ajax FC. The girls knew it would be a tough match. They have played 2 matches vs. Ajax in the past registering a draw and a win by just one goal. Ajax FC is a tough physical squad (with some really big girls!) and our Aurora girls knew it. The only words of wisdom from the coaching staff prior to the match were “mind over matter” and “want it more!”

After going down 1-0 early in the match, Aurora came back to tie it at 1. The game would remain tied at 1 until a few minutes into the 2nd half when Aurora popped a beautiful goal to go up 2-1. Then with just 6 minutes remaining in the match, Ajax stunned the Aurora faithful and tied the game at 2. Many thought this game was headed to extra time. Our Aurora girls were given a good beating physically on the day, tears were streaming from the eyes of many girls, fatigue and pain setting in but they never gave up. They kept getting pushed down and they kept getting back up. Every time they did so, they got up with more fire and more desire! The “want it more” factor became clear when Aurora took a 3-2 lead with a wonderful strike from a big distance away with just 2 minutes left to play. The tears quickly turned to smiles. Those 2 minutes must have felt like a lifetime for the girls, but they hung on and were crowned Thornhill Challenge Cup Champions!! Skill can only take you so far. If you do not have the desire and the heart to succeed, success remains a mere dream. These girls certainly have the heart and desire to compete, and it was proven first-hand to everyone who watched.

Congrats on a great weekend girls!



U10 Girls Team 1 - McGarrigle Cup Champions

U10 Girls Team 1 - McGarrigle Cup Champions

Saturday, August 13, 2011 was a great day to play soccer especially for the U10 Stingers Girls Team 1 as they captured the McGarrigle Cup with a solid 4 - 1 victory over the Markham Lightning.  The game saw a very determined Markham team work the Stingers hard as Markham used the energy provided by a Penalty Kick victory over Richmond Hill to advance from the semi finals.  The Stingers were steady as usual, playing a complete team game that leveraged their skills, athleticism, trust in each other and determination on their way to victory.  Earlier in the day the Stingers advanced from the semi final defeating the Newmarket United White team by a margin of 3 - 2.

Congratulations Stingers!!!



Women - YRSL Ben Steenhorst Cup Champions

Summer 2011 was the inaugural year for the AYSC’s senior women’s team. In its first season, the ladies have gone on to surpass all expectations. The coaching staff set out its expectations to the players and they were met, and it seems they were met with ease.

The ladies sit a top their league with just a handful of games left to play and 1st place all but clinched. Well done Ladies!! There was strong play from many of the women this summer and certainly put themselves in a class of their own. The Ladies also took part in the YRSL Cup, also known as the Steenhorst Cup. They met Whitchurch-Stouffville Mustangs in the final and comfortably won the match by a significant margin. The women of AYSC lifted the trophy, hopefully the first of many more to come. Remember, they still have the league trophy to lift come season end.


Congratulations to all members of the senior women’s team on a job well done!

U11 Boys Team 1 - Burlington Access Storage Cup Champions!

U11 Boys - Burlington Access Storage Cup Champions!

Competing in a field of 8 teams on a record setting hot & humid weekend the U11 boys team dug deep despite player shortages and went undefeated in 5 games over 2 days to capture the championship trophy over the host Burlington Hurricanes.

Aurora started their weekend with 3 games over 6 hours beating Waterloo, Flamborough and Kitchener scoring 8 goals while only allowing 1 and helping their goalie Andrew D'Andrade earn 2 shutouts in the process. These games resulted in the Stingers placing 1st after day 1 and qualifying to play the 4th place Flamborough Flames in the semi-finals on Sunday.

With the heat cranked up on Sunday at 9am, the Stingers played to a scoreless tie at half and had to dig deep to get the energy to keep going and play to advance to the final later that day. A late game goal by striker Ryan Mascarenhas put the Stingers up 1-0 which was enough to let the team look for cooler places to hang out before the final game at the Sherwood Forest turf field at 2pm.

With the turf reflecting the the hot sun, field temperatures climbed to 40+ degrees and with help from the parents water was refilled a few times over to keep the boys cool on the sideline. Thankfully their play on the field was hot and after some tough battles in 1st half, they lead by 3 goals over an exhausted host team. The Stingers continued their press with goals from Christian Lepone (a golden boot 5 for the weekend) , Ryan Mascarenhas , Malcolm Johnston, Sora Kenea, James Nolan, and Cameron Tomaselli. Solid defending from the entire team and the willingness to compete for every ball resulted in 5 wins, 22 goals for, 1 goal against, 4 shutouts and a great experience for the boys as a team.

Coaches Andy Mascarenhas & Nas Kenea would like to congratulate all of their players for their achievements at this tournament!

Congratulations Stingers!!!



U14 Boys Team 1 - Wins the Robbie

U14 Boys Team 1 - Wins the Robbie!

U14 Boys momentum continues. After a disappointing weekend where the U14 boys failed to qualify for the knock out rounds of the Ontario Cup due to goal difference, they vowed not to leave their fates in the hands of others as they prepared for their first game in the Robbie Tournament. Facing an overmatched East York team the boys easily won their first game 11-0. Leading the rampage was Joseph Fusco, potting four in this lopsided game. Facing a plucky Toronto Nitros in their afternoon game the boys ended up finishing the first day with 14 goals for and none against after a 3-0 win. Saturday morning brought their toughest game as they faced a Calgary team determined not to go home early as only one team per division would advance. A 1-0 win for Aurora and the Calgary boys were boarding the plane back to Alberta. The semi’s were over early, with 3 quick goals against Brampton the boys were on their way to the finals with a 5-1 win. The Finals matched the boys against a Wexford team that they had drawn 2-2 earlier in the year. The boys came out strong creating numerous scoring chances before Duncan Allen put the boys up 1-0. Wexford tied the score on a defensive error before Imad Shaker put the boys up again 2-1. Another opportunistic goal by Wexford against the run of play left the parents fearing the dreaded penalties. With minutes to play, Brady Reil scored the decisive and deserved game winning goal, earning him the Game Ball Award in a 3-2 win. Duncan Allen earned Robbie Tournament MVP.

Congratulations Stingers!!!



U13 Boys Team 1 - Wins the Robbie

U13 Boys Team 1 - Takes Home the Robbie!

Competing in a field of 24 teams, the U13 Boys Team 1 went undefeated winning all 6 games with an impressive 24 goals for and only allowing 4 against. The championship game was a thriller with Aurora capturing the title with a hard fought 3 -2 victory over Mt. Hamilton.

It was a hot and humid weekend in Toronto with both teams playing their 6th game in 3 days. Mt. Hamilton opened the scoring with a goal in the first 10 minutes. Aurora battled back with a goal scored by Cameron Searles off a corner kick. This gave Aurora momentum with Cameron Wright finding the back of the net and giving Aurora the 2 -1 lead going into half time.

The second half had both teams creating great scoring opportunities with near misses. Mt. Hamilton equalized with a quickly taken free kick which set up their striker for a breakaway. The striker made no mistake, Mt. Hamilton even with Aurora 2 -2.

With 15 minutes left, Nick Trewern struck a cracking strike into the top corner which left the Mt. Hamilton keeper helpless. Aurora went up 3-2. This forced Mt. Hamilton to push forward looking for the equalizer and trying to take the final into extra time. With less than a minute to play, the Mt. Hamilton striker broke free into the clear with a marvellous strike which appeared labelled for the low right corner. However, Jared Brown the keeper for Aurora made a full stretched finger tip save to deny Mt. Hamilton.

Final 3 - 2 Aurora. The 45th annual Robbie U13 Champions!!!! Coach Gus Menna would like to congratulate all his players on their hard work and endless effort on capturing this title.

Congratulations Stingers!!!
