A solid showing for the Greater Sudbury United U-14 girls soccer team, but not enough to pick up their second victory of the season. The visiting Whitby Iroquois downed Sudbury 3-1 Sunday afternoon at E.S. l'Horizon, as Greater United saw their record drop to 1-5-2.
Gabriella Barfield, Shantaya Farrell and Nicole Giouindis tallied for the Iroquois, while Chelsea Noble-Poland replied in a losing cause for Greater Sudbury United. The loss leaves Sudbury sitting eighth in the nine-team league, needing to pick up a couple of key victories over their final eight games to avoid relegation.
G.S.U. are back in action at home next weekend, hosting Vaughan (0-7-3) next Saturday at 2:00 p.m. at the Delki Dozzi Sports Complex. Meanwhile, some early season success is paying off for Sudbury Panhellenic Storm U-16 ladies as the team endured a rather fruitless weekend on the race.
Despite a pair of losses (2-0 to North York Hearts Azzuri and 5-0 to Unionville-Milliken), Panhellenic remains in the thick of the race in the CGSL U-16 division. Their season mark of 4-4-5 find the team ranked fourth in the nine team loop, just one point back of Richmond Hill and one up on Unionville-Milliken.
Coach Kevin Roach and company are back in action at home in two weeks time, hosting both Whitby and Oshawa Turul at the Laurentian University soccer fields. Panhellenic closes out their regular season with a return visit to the same two teams on the following weekend, making the trek just east of Toronto.
