BAS OWSL Team Wins 2013 League Cup

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

BAS OWSL WINS 2013 LEAGUE CUP

Back row: Paula Tavares (Head Coach), Jennifer Brock, Harwant Grewal, Meghan Carter, Kimberly Beckles, Rupy Mundi, Norman Ficker (Asst. Coach) and Mario Perrotta (Asst. Coach)
Middle row: Anna Matwijec (Manager), Emilee Barrington, Danica Barnes, Alyssa Budhoo, Kim Lee, Jayme Wright, Cristina Moonah and Liz Figueira
Front row: Jessica Fletcher and Cristina Fernandes (Keeper)
Absent Players: Jasjit Birk, Kim Mizener, Christine Travassos and Raquel Alto

The 10:00 am semi final game against U21 Oakville MJD Team was challenging with only 12 players available to play the game. Liz Figueira fought her way through two defenders for the first BAS goal, at half the score was 1-0 for BAS. The Oakville team scored two goals very late in the second half, but the BAS team was determined not to give up; with less than 2 minutes remaining in the game, Jessica Fletcher worked hard down the field with her team mates for the tying goal. The game ended in a 2-2 tie and went directly to penalty kicks. Our penalty kickers were: Jessica Fletcher, Alyssa Budhoo, Meghan Carter, Kimberly Beckles, and Liz Figueira; all 5 penalty kickers were calm and looked confident when approaching the penalty marker and the keeper Cristina Fernandes saved an attempt; as a result BAS won the penalty kicks, 5-3 to move on to the finals.

The 1:00 pm finals were played against U21 Woodbridge Strikers MJD Team and with an injury to Jessica Fletcher late in the first game, we called Jennifer Brock as a substitute. The BAS team came out at the start of the game with the energy required to get them through. Emilee Barrington scored a brilliant goal late in the first half for a 1-0 lead. It took the BAS team defending and holding off the young U21 Woodbridge Strikers team for the entire second half with every ounce of energy that the players had left and a lot of heart in the blistering mid afternoon heat to finish the game. Late in the second half there was a scramble in the 6 yard box and Cristina Fernandes kept her eye on the ball and made a game saving save to keep the lead. At the 90th minute the score remained 1-0 for BAS.

The Head Coach Paula Tavares, Assistant Coaches Norman Ficker and Mario Perrotta and the team Manager Anna Matwijec are proud of the team effort and determination to win League Cup this year.

Congratulations to all the players for winning all 5 games and becoming the 2013 MJD League Cup championships.

OSA Lightning Safety

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

 

Lightning Strikes Soccer Pitch

Lightning Strikes Soccer Pitch

 In the world of soccer, rainy conditions are not ideal and definitely put a dampener on summer games throughout the outdoor season. Frustration builds when games are started with bright sunshine only to be put on hold or abandoned altogether, while the grey clouds blanket the sky and loud claps of thunder and flashes of lightning move in to force play to cease. Inclement weather, especially in the cases of thunderstorms is a critical issue that needs to be carefully monitored. It is important that not only referees, but all coaches, players, and spectators know about proper lightning precautions as they are exposed to these conditions.

The continuance of the game is at the referee’s discretion. The Ontario Soccer Association has a Weather Policy in place that should be followed in such conditions. The Policy mirrors the ‘30-30 Rule’ as directed by Environment Canada. The ‘30-30’ Rule should be known and understood by all involved in the game. The ‘30-30 Rule’ advises that you take appropriate sheltered if you can count 30 seconds or fewer between thunder and lightning, and to remain sheltered for 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder and flash of lightning (see below).
