This past weekend Aug 12-13, the Caboto Lions 2003 Girls participated in the Brantford Soccer Classic. The tournament was another great competitive experience filled with one goal games against Tier 1 teams.  The Lions finish 1st in their group with 2 wins and a tie in pool play.  In the semi final, the Lions won 2-1 and got to face one of the best U14 teams in Ontario in Paris FC in the final.  Having lost 2-0 to Paris in the Cambridge Heritage tournament the year before, the girls followed the team game plan extremely effectively.  The game was tied 0-0 after regulation, before Paris scored on a golden goal 5 minutes before penalties.  The Lions played with an amazing amount of heart and toughness and gave it everything they had throughout the tournament and especially in the final.  The coaches and parents were very proud!   An amazing experience and a very successful weekend girls!!
