Tough season in a competitive league

The Orangeville Athletics Division One women’s soccer team wrapped up the 2014 season with back to back games on the soccer pitch at Rotary park in Orangeville on Sunday, August 24.

The team had one game to make up for an earlier scheduled game that was canceled due to weather earlier in the season.

The squad played a 1:30 game against the Aurora Stingers that ended in a 3-3 tie in a high speed game that saw lots of scoring opportunities including a few cross-goal shots and near misses

O-ville goals came from Cassie Luff, on a penalty shot, Emily Spragge, and Timara Stuck.

After taking a break in the afternoon, the team returned to Rotary park for their regularly scheduled game against the Aurora Lady Celtics.

That game got underway at 7:00 p.m., and resulted in a 1-0 loss for the Athletics.

That was the final outing for the squad this season.

The Orangeville team had a competitive but tough season after a restructuring of the League dropped formerly higher level teams down to the Division One level in the York Simcoe Soccer League.

“We had Premier teams come down to our division,” Explained Athletics striker Timara Stuck. “They used a lot of triangles, we had to learn how to close in on those.”

She described the league as ‘very fast’ with a ‘lot of passing’ and very accurate play.

Timara finished the season as the top scorer on the Athletics squad notching eight goals over 15 games in the regular season and getting credit for a tournament  goal.

This was the second season that Timara was the top goal scorer.

Teammate Jessica Keller ended the season with three goals as did Shelby Keller.

Sydney Duncan and Cassie Luff both had two goal to their credit.

Overall the team won two games, tied five and lost eight for the season, scoring 23 goals over the 15 regular season games.

The women’s team will lose a few players after this season but will be back with new players to start 2015.
