Caledon soccer well represented at Ontario Cup finals


The Caledon Soccer Club has double the chance to bring home an Ontario Cup than the club has ever had before.

Both the Under-13 Girls Caledon Cyclones and the Men's Caledon FC have reached their respective Ontario Cup finals after semifinal wins last weekend.

“This is the first time in club history that we have two teams competing in the finals,” said Emma Mehlenbacher, communications director for Caledon Soccer.

The Cyclones will be looking to add to their Ontario Indoor Cup title they earned in February for a gold doubleheader this season, when they beat the Steele City Rapids 5 – 3 in the championship game in Vaughan.

Tearing a path through their Ontario Cup competition since mid-July, the 30 – 1 on route to their semifinal matchup Saturday against the Oshawa Kicks Red at University Stadium in Guelph, where they swiftly advanced to the championship by a score of 4 – 2.

They face off against Barrie FC Blue on Sept. 15, with a kickoff time of 12:30p.m. at the Ontario Soccer Centre in Vaughan.

The Caledon FC men rode a similar path to their respective final, allowing just one goal against in three games against Bradford, Ottawa, and St. Catherines before meeting the Aurora Hearts in Sunday's semifinal.

Down 1 – 0 late in the match, a pair of goals by Diego Gonzalez in the final three minutes of play gave Caledon a 2 – 1 win and a ticket to Sept. 8th's championship match.

Caledon will face off against Ottawa St. Anthony OCSL at the Ontario Soccer Centre, with kickoff set for 3p.m.

This marks the third time in six years that the men will be competing in the Ontario Cup finals.
