U16 Boys win C1 League title

It’s been quite the year for our U16 Boys C1 team.

Having won their first tournament of the season at the NSC spring cup in Blaine at the beginning of May they have remained undefeated all season.  Unfortunately their second tournament of the year was rained out but they have recorded 25 points out of a maximum 27 in league play this year.

The way the leagues aligned this year they were placed with a couple of the Cities powerhouse clubs in St Croix Academy and Woodbury SC.  They did the double on St Croix and beat Woodbury.  The squad show great character all season.  They had 3 come from behind results in league play as they outscored their opponents by 22, with a total of 30 goals in the eleven games played to date.  Leading the way in points is Keegan Chastey.  He has netted 14 times and has supplied 8 assist from his attacking midfield role.  At the other end of the pitch their 3 man defense ahead of Goalkeeper Charlie Eginton along with their 2 holding midfielders and the wing backs have held their opponents to just 8 goals all season.

With the 25 points they have secure the league title with one game remaining, it will certainly be their goal to complete league play undefeated as they head to Woodbury.  Our U16 Boys C1 team now becomes the first C1 team in the Club to win the league in over a decade.  Congratulations!!!

With winning the league comes the number one seed for play offs.  We all here at Gitchi Gummi wish them all the best in the State Qualifiers as we do with all of our teams as we reach the end of the season.
