WISC 2001 Boy's B Team
On July 10th the WISC 2001 Boy's B Team traveled to Rochester, New York to
compete in the 25th Annual Cobra Classic. After starting the tournament
with a 2-0 loss to a U15 team from Scarborough the boys went on a roll to
win all of their remaining games. They met the same Scarborough team in the
final. The boys went up 1-0 early but Scarborough came back to tie the game
before the half. It seemed this game was headed for penalty kicks but with
minutes left the boys pulled ahead after Mitchell Lewis converted a nice
through ball from Riley Rakestrow. The final whistle blew and 12 VERY tired
boys celebrated the Championship!
Team members include: Jordan Thomas, Julius Brown, Tudor Trinc, Allan MacDonald, Riley Rakestrow, Zack Simpson, Andrew Principato, Cole Bari, Marc Dion, Mitchell Lewis, Joey Goddard, and Jacob Sperling. The team brought home the championship for Riley Moore, Andrew Langton (injury) and Andrew Malyjasiak (previous commitment). CONGRATULATIONS BOYS!!!

U14 Whitby OPDL teams
The Girls and Boys U14 Whitby OPDL teams traveled to Dublin, Ohio for the
Nike Challenge Cup, led by Coach Steve Airlie, and in both cases came home
with the cup.
Although our Whitby teams faced teams with players who were older and stronger, our opponents' kick and run games were no match for the technical skill, ball control and passing ability that WISC has developed in our players.
Well done boys and girls!
Both teams are currently still searching for one more player. Please contact Coach Steve for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org

WHITBY -- The Whitby under-18 soccer team closed out a successful run on the field by winning both the Central Soccer League L3 Division and the CSL League Cup this summer.
The team members have also shone off the field, and many have moved to exciting post-secondary opportunities.
Five players from the original under-eight team that was assembled by coach Chris Reilly remained in the U18 roster this season, with others being long-time Whitby players.
Five players also represented local high schools in OFSAA soccer this year.
Last year, the team won the CSL League Cup and the Trent University Showcase in Peterborough, and in 2011 won the U15 Ontario Cup for tier 2.
In 2007, at the U11 age group, the team won the prestigious Schwan’s USA Cup in Minnesota against teams from all over North America.
Among the solid cast of leaders on the team were Jared Brookes, of Sinclair Secondary School, who was on the student senate for the Durham District School Board, and Vinay Padalia, who was the prime minister of the student council at Donald Wilson.
Those now playing at the post-secondary school level include Michael Chin-Sang, Negus Luke and Liam Stocks at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, Dominic Murdaca, Colin Reilly and Aidan Comeau at Durham College, Brayden Pickering and Padalia at McMaster University, Alexsander Biorac at University of Toronto, Carlos Gonzales-Mugaburu at Ryerson University, Connor Goudey at Queen’s University, Eric Theriault at University of Ottawa and Dan Lay at University of Western Ontario. Other team members are Mike Miura, Darnell Myles and Jacob Stephens.

The striking force of Josh, Andrei, Adam, and Wyatt provided all the scoring for the weekend.
