The U-16 Girls Ontario Cup final featured King City Royals taking on the North Mississauga Black Panthers at the Ontario Soccer Centre.
In the semi-finals, North Mississauga defeated the Oshawa Kicks to secure their place in the final, while King City downed the Sarnia Spirit to advance.
North Miss would open the scoring for the game in the 10th minute when Maya-Joy Thompson jumped on a loose ball in the box and found the back of the net to make it 1-0 for her side.
Thompson would add another ten minutes later when Paige Olesinski sent her in alone on net. Thompson made no mistake in making it 2-0.
Kiana Khedoo increased that lead further when she found the ball at her foot on the edge of the box and her confident strike made it 3-0.
The second half began much the same as the first when Faythe Hoyte picked out Tori Evans who did good work to shake her defender and increased North Miss’ lead to 4-0.
King City would keep working hard and would pull one back a few minutes later. Stephanie Worthy made a long individual run, dancing along the touchline, her shot found the back of the net and drew her team back to 4-1.
Worthy would do it again with 12 minutes remaining. Another fantastic individual effort found her on the edge of the box and her seeing-eye-shot fooled the North Miss keeper to bring her team to within two.
That would be as close as they would get though as North Miss closed up ranks, defended their lead and would capture the U-16 Girls Ontario Cup title.
