The Notre Dame Senior Girls’ soccer team just won the BC Catholic tournament in style.

The team has proved that they are strong competitors again this season, after becoming AA Provincial Champions last June.

This year has already started off strong compared to last year’s 5th place finish at BC Catholics, and the team has shown immediate chemistry even though they haven’t played any games together prior to this tournament. 

The team’s first win was a 2-0 result against STA, which gave them confidence to compete in the next three games. Their second game was a win against Archbishop Carney, this time after penalty kicks, where the team remained composed throughout the entirety of the game.

Their third and fourth games were also wins, and the results were a 4-1 win against St. Ann’s, and a 5-0 win against SJB.

Finally, the senior team made it to the finals where they had to go up against STM. The girls battled together as a team and played both smart and aggressive to take the 1-0 win. 

During BC Catholics, Brianna Langelaan, Alessia Bellotti, Amaya Heyes, Danika Sigur, and Alexa Di Ruggiero each received a player of the match award for one of the 5 games of the tournament.

At the end of the final game, Mackenzie Mills and Adriana Primerano were named tournament all-stars, and Brianna Langelaan was named the tournament MVP, and was given the Golden Boot award for the most goals in the tournament.

Overall, the entire team should be proud of their performance and grit throughout the tournament. Their first league game starts on Tuesday, April 11th, and they hope to continue their win-streak and play well.
