U12 Boys Team 1 - Ottawa Icebreaker Champions

U12 Boys Team 1 - Ottawa Icebreaker Champions


I am proud to report that our U12 Boys Team 1 won the Ottawa Icebreaker tournament this weekend. An interesting tournament layout, called the double shoot out, guaranteed each team 4 games. Teams were only eliminated after two losses. The game times in the preliminary round were 2x15 min and in the final rounds 2x20 min. After that it went straight to shootout if the teams were tied. 3 shots in the preliminary round and 5 in the final rounds. Teams got 1 point for a shoot out loss and 2 points for shoot out win. We played a total of 8 games in a pool of 24 teams. We had a number of injuries during the tournament, with our goalie having the worst one on his growth plate injury in his wrist. We dedicated the win to him. After all he was able to celebrate with us after he came back from x-rays.

Congratulations Stingers!!!

U14 Boys Team 1 - West Niagara Champions

U14 Boys Team 1 - West Niagara Tournament Champions


With much anticipation, a new coach at the helm and a winter filled with training, the U14 boys took to the fields for the West Niagara Tournament this past weekend. The boys started with a quick goal against league rivals Islington and played a solid game ending with a 2-0 score. A subsequent 0-0 tie against OYSL side Oakville and 2-1 win against Guelph Royals put the boys through to the Semi’s in first place in their division. Playing another league rival, Toronto SC, in the Semi’s the boys thoroughly out chanced their opponents but could not find the back of the net. Ending regulation tied at zero’s, the dreaded penalty shoot out would declare a winner. A calmly slotted shot to the top corner by Josh DaSilva put the U14s deservedly through to the Finals, where a rematch with Islington rangers loomed. In the Finals the U14s found themselves trailing for the first time in the tournament but not just by a single marker but by two at half time. Responding to coach Phil D’elia’s urging and a deft change in the formation the boys rallied with thoroughly dominating second half potting a goal by Duncan Allen and two by Brady Reil to carry home their first championship of the season. Other scorers in the tournament were Christian Carano and Joshua Dasilva.

Congratulations Stingers!!!

U12 Girls Team 1 - Frank Sobil Top Flight Champions


The 2001 Girls First Team started the season with a bang. They went undefeated in the Top Flight of the Frank Sobil Tournament this past weekend outscoring their opponents 20-3. They met a tough academy team from Ottawa in the final and conceded an early penalty kick within the first 3 minutes to go down 1-0. The Stingers fought back hard to tie the game in the first half and take over the lead in the second. They battled hard all the way to the final whistle to hold on to a 2-1 victory; a great game that showcased the girls’ heart, skill and tenacity. The coaching staff and parents are very proud of them.

Great job Stingers!!!

U17 Boys - Ontario Cup Finalists


2 years ago the 1993 boys of Aurora soccer were bottom dwellers. A few of the top players had just left, 2 new coaches had come in and there was a significant number of player turnaround as well. The team spent the winter of 2009 training, allowing for everyone to get to know each other. The boys started well winning the Oshawa Frank Sobeil Classic. The summer season to follow would end up on an average note with the boys placing mid-table in the lowest division. It was however a big improvement from the previous season.

Following a one month break and try-outs for the 2010 season, the boys were presented with a challenge. The coaching staff wanted more for their team so after a league structure overhaul, Aurora was given the opportunity to move up a division. The coaching Staff gladly accepted and then challenged the players; Step up and play hard, give it all or go home is what the message was. What would follow this challenge would be amazing.

Once the roster was finalized for the winter program, the team wasted little time and started training right away. The first stop was Aurora's Pro Youth Academy. By January 2010, the boys had been training now for 4 months. By April, 20 weeks had gone by and the team would hold one last set of spring try-outs before heading into the 2010 summer season. The team's first game would be in May- a CSL Cup match vs. Whitby A. Unfortunately the result was not very good losing heavily to a Whitby side from 2 levels above Aurora. After this loss the boys wouldn't look back.

The team entered the COVI tournament and won it all, not losing a game throughout the entire competition. The team spent the next couple of weeks following the tournament making final tweaks to the roster before the league began. In early June, the league would begin with the boys playing their first game away to Barrie.

A scary start to this one, it was a humid night and the boys were down 2-0. This would not be the way for the guys to start, so they kept fighting and came back to win the game 3-2 in fine fashion. This very game would set the tone for a great year. 25 goals scored for striker Antonio Savoia (tops in the league) and 0.88 goals against average by goal keeper Kevin Collins were just 2 of many stats which blew people away. The team allowed just 14 goals in 16 games. What a mark! All in all16 league games were played with 14 wins, 2 ties and 0 losses finishing the league undefeated. The guys also went for the Ontario Cup, coming up against teams who all play at higher levels. One by one, Aurora took them all down making it to the Ontario Cup finals.

By September of 2010, the boys had been crowned COVI Champs and had virtually clinched the league title with 2 games in hand. The Ontario Cup would ice the cake for sure. Unfortunately after a hard fought game, the boys couldn't pull it off losing 2-0 to Whitby in the finals. Being in the Finals alone was an accomplishment in itself and the guys should be proud of this. After the Ontario Cup the boys went and finished their remaining league games and decided to finish the year off with the Woodbridge Classic. The boys would cap their impressive campaign with one more tournament victory against yet another team from a higher level- Scarborough Malvern. Aurora took it 4-3 in penalties after a scoreless draw in regulation time. What an accomplishment for this program, especially to know how far they have come in just 2 years. Head Coach Mike Curci had this to say about the final game of the year: "It was beautiful! The guys played with heart. I've never seen them play with that much heart. The other team dominated the game; it was like Barcelona vs. Inter in the Champions league. We defended for an entire game and we never gave up. I am proud of what I saw in that game from all the boys. We had players playing hurt, it was just beautiful. A bunch of guys pulling together for one cause, it was great to watch. It was a perfect finish to a wonderful year!"

Special thanks go out to coaches Michael and Victoria Curci for all of their contributions throughout the season. What a great addition they were to the existing coaching staff of Mike Curci, Matt Rosati and Manager Carmen Giambattista. With a final view of the season overall, Coach Mike had this to say: "at the end of the day, we as a coaching staff pushed these guys hard. They now understand and have a small taste of what is required to play this game at a high level. Whether or not they take that route is beyond us as coaches, what is important is that they had a taste of it. We pushed their limits and I think each of these young men are stronger for it."

Congratulations to the entire team on a fantastic year.

This is a classic situation of hard work paying off.

Well done guys!

U16 Girls Team 3 Place 1st

U16 Girls T3 clinch first place in CGSL Level 4
and are Cup Finalists!


Congratulations to the U16 Girls Team 3, who have had an awesome season in CGSL Level 4 Division 3. They were crowned Division Champions a month before end of season which ended with 9 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie. The team then followed that up with a great CGSL Cup run to finish runners-up with a loss to Oak Ridges in penalty shootouts. The remarkable thing about this is that the cup tournament encompassed teams from CGSL Level 4 Divisions 1,2 and 3. The Stingers turned away two Division 1 teams in their hunt for glory.

An impressive undefeated run through their own division only tells only part of the story. The Stingers were also tasked with playing up a division for six of their games and managed 3 wins and 1 tie against the higher competition. Last year was this team's first year playing competitively when they won the YRSL McGarrigle Cup at the end of the season.

Congratulations Stingers!

98 Girls Change 46 Years of Soccer History in Aurora

98G-OC-Champs-2010-sm
The 1998 Aurora Stingers Girl's team did this something that no Aurora soccer team has been able to do in its 46 year history – win the Ontario Cup! The team, formed in 2006 has had great success since its inception. In this year's Ontario Cup, the team hosted the preliminary rounds in Aurora and captured their group by winning all four matches over Brampton, Nepean of Ottawa, Oshawa and Erin Mills, scoring 18 goals and allowing 0. This put them into the quarter finals where they beat Pickering 3-0. They then went on to beat Woodbridge in Semi Finals 1-0 on a terrific goal by striker Georgia Kastanis. This set up a final between Aurora and the North Mississauga Panthers – two soccer powerhouses in the U-12 division. Aurora remains undefeated in league play over the past 5 years having played 76 league matches and losing none and defeating the #5 ranked team in the United States in tournament in May. "North Mississauga won their South Region League without losing a match so we knew it was going to be tough game", said Aurora head coach Grant Purdy. "We are undefeated in the Central Girls Soccer League this year as well so it set up a great match between the #1 and #2 teams". This drew a large crowd at the Ontario Soccer Centre as seating capacity overflowed with many people having to stand. Both sides received tremendous support for their clubs. The final was exciting as both teams exchanged scoring opportunities with North Miss finally breaking through with 5 minutes remaining in the first half. Aurora went to their dressing room down 1-0 and regrouped for the second half. "I basically told the girl's that North Miss's goal is asking a question of us. Do we have what it takes to battle back", said Purdy. Purdy got his answer as Aurora came out like a house on fire and pinned North Miss back for large spells of the second half. The break through finally came in the 48th minute when striker Alessia Mangoni converted a great free kick by Katherine Bulgaretti. With the score tied 1-1 Aurora pressed hard for the winner but could not find it and it was off to dreaded penalty kicks for more drama. Aurora's Keeper, Alessia Limotta gave the Stingers a chance to win by making some outstanding saves and converting a penalty of her own. But it was Aurora 7th penalty taker, Katherine Bulgaretti's, whose wonderfully struck shot found the top corner giving the Aurora club its first Cup and provincial championship in their 46 year history. "46 years is a long time to wait, but for these girls it was worth it. They will remember this moment for the rest of their lives. Perhaps now this will pave the way for other Aurora teams to capture this prestigious honour, said coach Purdy.

U18 Boys - CSL Champions 2010

1992 BOYS GO UNDEFEATED AND WIN THE LEAGUE!!


The 92 Boys (U18) recently played their final game as Aurora Stingers and part of the Aurora Youth Soccer Club.  It was winner take all as three points for Aurora would make them Champions of the highest division in the CSL.  If they were to lose their Vaughan opponents would win the league.  The Boys came up BIG winning the game 1-0, winning the league and also going undefeated.

This is a fairy tale finish for this age group. The team has experienced it all..the ups and downs have all been there over the years. A special mention goes to Dylan Huntley and Dexter Speller-Drews who have been on this team since U8.  They have shown true loyalty to the team and the club, through the good and the bad times and have now got what they, along with their team mates fully deserve.

Having been promoted in 2008 and 2009 it was always going to be tough competing for the first time in the highest division of the CSL.  Head Coach Phil D'Elia was ecstatic about his teams performance this year.  Having added some players this year he wasn't sure if the team would gel together quickly enough to be a contender for the league title but the boys were up to it and got the job done.

The U18 age group had a busy schedule finishing early in August to accommodate the players moving off to University or College, many of whom are presently trying out for their new school soccer teams.

Well done to all the players and everyone involved with the team and this Championship year.
