vsc u21 2017 on cup champions 1On Sunday, July 23 at the Ontario Soccer Centre our Vaughan Azzurri won the Men's U-21 Ontario Cup Final for the fourth year in a row!!! Prior to the final, the semi-finals took place Saturday, at the Ontario Soccer Centre and the Vaughan Azzurri defeated the Oakville Blue Devils 2-0 while the Woodbridge Strikers edged the Richmond Hill Raiders 2-1 to advance to Sunday's final. The final match was setup to be a classic, as Vaughan Soccer club would be playing for their fourth title against our the long-time rival the Woodbridge Strikers!

Classic matchup: Vaughan Azzurri vs. Woodbridge Strikers 

Vaughan had the run of play early but the Woodbridge Strikers capitalized on some confusion at the back and Luca Gaglia tapped in the game’s opening goal. The two sides would trade chances with the no goals from our Azzurri in the first half, but when the second half began, it was all Vaughan pressing once again. Their hard work earned a free kick deep in the Woodbridge end. Vaughan’s Leonard Sohn whipped a left-footed freekick in to the box. The cross found the head of Jovante Etienne who nodded the ball down into the corner to draw the game level at 1-1. Alistair Johnston made no mistake with his opportunity, burying the penalty and giving Vaughan a 2-1 lead. Momentum changed in Vaughan favour, as a Sohn chip into the Woodbridge box found the foot of Etienne who directed it past the keeper to make it 3-1. Johnston added his second of the day from a fantastic freekick from the edge of the box that fooled the Woodbridge keeper to the short side, lastly Aidan O’Hara would add another in the 85th minute as Vaughan refused to take their foot off the pedal, increasing their lead to 5-1. That would be all our efforts that contributed to Vaughan capturing their fourth U-21 Men’s Ontario Cup in a row. Congratulations to our players, and team, great effort on this latest championship!
