CAPE BRETON FC U18AA Girls have capped a superb start to the season by making the trip to Halifax and emerging as the Allt Tournament champions.
The Capers squad set out for the competition over the long weekend in great spirits after an excellent opening to their Nova Scotia Soccer League (NSSL) campaign.
Guided by coaches Chelsea Currie, a former Cape Breton University Varsity attacker, and Everett Fuller CBFC soared into the new season with four straight wins as they cleaned up in double-headers with both Halifax County and United DFC on home soil.
That meant they travelled to the Allt with confidence sky-high and they emerged from their section with a Final place secured for the big game on Monday morning.
CBFC faced Halifax County in the gold medal showdown and a double from CBU-bound Julia Mombourquette sealed a 2-1 win to ensure a trophy party.
Coach Currie said: “The Final was a frustrating game at times but we stuck to our way of playing throughout the tournament and passed it well.
“Both Everett and I are proud of the effort the girls have put in so far, they are a dedicated group and this success augurs well for the rest of the season.”
After a hectic start to the outdoor season the Capers squad have a rest this coming weekend before returning to NSSL action on June 4 and 5 when they hit the road to tackle Antigonish Celtics and North Nova United SC.
