Congratulations to the CNS Avalanche on their 4th post-season qualification in 5 seasons. The team had a 14-2 record in regular season and tournament play. They faced strong competition at outdoor provincials and came away with a win, a tie and a loss. Thanks to our great players, team officials and parents for making this another amazing season.
Former CNS Azzurri player Tolu Oyeniyi has scored the game winning goal to lead her University of Maine Fort Kent Women's Soccer Team - the Bengals - to capture its fifth straight national championship at the USCAA National Champions Women's Soccer 2017. Way to Go Tolu. We are so proud of you!!! Check out the video of her goal and her interview here.
Girls U18 CNS Azzurri team participated in the Tier 2 Provincials in Red Deer on Aug 11-13, 2017. The team had a slow start to their outdoor season with 2 back to back losses, but turned things around and played the remainder of their season undefeated, earning them the provincial spot. The girls battled the heat in Red Deer and struggled with many injuries, to successfully bring home a Bronze medal. For half the team it is the end of their Youth Soccer Career, and they are happy to have finished on a good note.
CNS is very proud of Derek Brust who is playing in this year’s Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg. Derek is playing forward for Team Alberta. And it has been fun watching Derek on TSN and influence his team’s success – assisting the game winning goal against Manitoba to get them all the way to the gold medal match.
The Canada Games are this country’s largest multi-sport event for young athletes and in 2017 will celebrate their 50th anniversary and acknowledge Canada’s 150th birthday.
Derek will rejoin the CNS Hurricanes following this tournament to compete in Alberta's Bu17 Tier One Provincials competition. Good luck to Derek and the CNS Hurricanes.
