Les Aigles de L'Essor used a strong easterly wind to their advantage and scored three first half goals as they repeated as 2A champs. "I thought it was really good we scored right off the bat coz then we could play defensively and hold the game." said Elle Beaulieu who scored a goal to help L'Essor beat Tecumseh Vista 3-1 in the championship game Wednesday at Holy Names.
All three goals by Les Aigles were scored in the first eight minutes of the game and came off the foot of Alex Smith. "I put it in off the corner and she (Beaulieu) got a header. The other two the wind just carried the ball to the net off the corners." said Smith who scored the other two for L'Essor. "It really helped us out in the first half to get ahead. Maggie McGregor scored the lone tally for the Vortex.
Smith and Beaulieu helped L'Essor qualify for SWOSSA. "For the season we just had a lot of chemistry so it was really nice just to win again especially after we were playing in the AAA division (3-3) and had a lot of tough games." Smith said.
"It's our last year playing high school soccer and we're never going to experience this chemistry again so I just think it's nice." Beaulieu added.
