Caz Girls 10U Team Finishes Second in Playoffs

The Caz Girls 10u team made an impressive debut in their inaugural league playoffs, ultimately securing a  second-place finish. The journey began with a resounding 5-3 triumph over Amherst, earning them a well-deserved spot in the Championship Game. Goal scorers Harper Riehle, Vivian Masocco (2G), and Margaret Lafferty (2G) led the team's charge, demonstrating skill and determination. The Chiefs countered everything thrown at them by the Lady Knights, ensuring their victory.

In the Championship clash, the Chiefs faced off against Niagara, but unfortunately, the Purple Eagles proved too difficult, resulting in a 3-0 defeat for the Caz Girls. Despite valiant efforts to keep it a one-goal game for more than half of the game, the team eventually ran out of steam.

Finishing the regular season with a 4-2-2 record, the Girls finished the third overall standings. A sincere congratulations to all the players, coaches, and parents for their collective efforts in contributing to a memorable and successful season!
