U15 OPDL Girls Win Bronze at the 2022 Ontario Summer Games


Our U15G OPDL team had a very successful time at the 2022 Summer Games in Mississauga. The girls experienced a great opening ceremony with other athletes their age representing a variety of sports. Our team won three games and lost only once in four days despite some challenging weather conditions and tough competition.  On July 24th, the team played and won their bronze medal game versus Tecumseh SC. The girls applied what they practised and encouraged and supported one another. In addition to their success on the field, this experience helped the girls to continue to strengthen their collaboration as a team! Special thanks to Coach Pat and Coach Marco.
