Impact girls get back on track
by Randy Pascal
The GSSC (Greater Sudbury Soccer Club) Impact U15 Girls were in need of a shot in the arm, and the team got just that on a weekend road trip.
After opening CGSL (Central Girls Soccer League) Level 4 Premier play quite slowly a few weeks back, the team picked up a pair of key wins over the
past couple of days.
Joining her team in Ajax after competing at OFSAA with the Lockerby Vikings, Riley McEwen netted four goals on Saturday, leading Sudbury
past Ajax FC White 7-2.
Brenna MacMillan added a pair of goals, with Brianne Rodrigue rounding out the attack as the Impact hit the win column for the first time
this year. The locals kicked off league play with a 2-2 draw with the Scarborough Blizzard late last month, blanked 1-0 by the Oshawa Kicks
the very next day.
This time around, the Impact remained on a roll as Sophie Paradis scored in the dying minutes, allowing the northern girls to escape with a 1-0
whitewash over the Markham Impact.
With the back to back wins, Sudbury takes over first place in the eight team league, a single point ahead of Oshawa and Unionville, both of whom hold a
game in hand.
The Impact are back at home this coming weekend, facing the Blizzard in a rematch on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at the James Jerome Sports Complex,
taking a break from league play after that encounter and returning to action on July 7th.
