U17 Boys Rep Win the CSL Cup

The Aurora Youth Soccer Club's U17 Boys ended their season on a high note after pulling off a proverbial underdog final round 2-1 win against Whitby this past Saturday afternoon to claim the Central Soccer League's (CSL) Cup.

During Saturday's game torrential rains and stiff winds pelted the players for most of the play which only added to the game's drama and intensity. Just 36 seconds into the game AYSC startled Whitby by quickly jumping ahead with the first goal. Whitby came back to tie it up by the end of the first half. During the first half tie game, AYSC keeper Dylan Yeo was forced to make a spectacular penalty kick save that kept AYSC spirits up for a fighting chance to pull in the win. If the game remained tied it would have gone straight to a penalty kick shoot-out to determine the winner. But with just 10 minutes left, AYSC went up 2-1 and held on to the end for the win against a physical and aggressive Whitby offense.

Whitby had beaten AYSC 4-1 in regular season play and were this year's U17 CSL Season Champions in a league that had 16 teams from Toronto, York Region, Durham Region, Simcoe County & Sudbury. AYSC finished 7th place in regular season play and had lost 4-1 to Whitby during the league play. The CSL Cup is a knock-out style tournament run throughout the season with all 16 teams from the league vying for the Cup. The AYSC U17 Boys are led by Coach Peter Bulfon, Assistant Coach Vince Raponi and Manager Angelo Hatzilolios.
