Congratulations to Richmond Hill Soccer Club’s 2001 Girls, who finished as finalists of the York Region Soccer Association’s McGarrigle Cup.
The team, which is coached by André Serero and Alex Shufman and managed by Mieka Dortmans, started their McGarrigle Cup campaign back in June with a victory against King City. That first game was decided in penalty kicks after the two teams were tied 1-1 after regulation. With that victory, our Raiders advanced to the semi-finals where they would be matched up against Barrie SC. The girls put on a tremendous performance in that game, winning by a score of 3-0 and securing themselves a place in the cup final.
The final game, which was held last weekend in Lake Simcoe, saw our Raiders up against a tough UMSC squad. The girls continued their strong play which they have demonstrated throughout the entire McGarrigle Cup campaign, but would eventually fall 2-1 in what was an extremely tight contest.
