1995 Erin Mills A & B Teams

U14AG Mighty Eagles Finalist 2009 Eagle Cup

Wow…After playing a fabulous game on Friday night against the Wexford Wildcats, (some commented it was the best game played between any two teams at this OYSL level this season), the Mighty Eagles lined up less than 10 hours after leaving Twin, to participate in the Erin Mills Eagle Cup.  First up, was very determined Vaughn team that was quite aggressive and played some competitive soccer.  However, by the end of the game Erin Mills won comfortably 3 –0.  Later, the team faced Etobicoke, who appeared more determined than Vaughn to defeat The Mighty Eagles.  After having numerous opportunities, Erin Mills defeated them 2- 0.  In their last match of the day, the Mighty Eagles played an overmatched team from Thorold.  Despite playing the second half with only nine players and putting their regular goalie, Michelle, who scored at forward, the coaches were unable to slow down the onslaught.  With hat tricks from defenders Christina, and Stefanie, who had four goals, the Might Eagles won 12- 0.

On Championship Sunday, the Mighty Eagles, in the morning, tied London Shock 1-1 as Bria scored on a penalty shot, after Courtney was taken down in the penalty box.  Natty scored the golden goal, which gave the Mighty Eagles a 2 – 1 victory and landed the Mighty Eagles into the Finals against their sisters The Erin Mills Lady Eagles.  After a scoreless first half, Alyssa scored a beautiful goal set-up by Donika.  Despite a golden opportunity by Franny late in the game, which forced the Lady Eagles’ keeper to make an outstanding game saving save, this rather close game headed for overtime, as well.  This time, the Lady Eagles scored from a corner kick to capture the 2009 Eagles Cup Championship. 

Congratulations to the Erin Mills Lady Eagles and the Mighty Eagles who made the Eagle Cup, an exciting tournament, yet again, and more hardware for Josef’s Trophy Case at the Clubhouse!

Erin Mills Mighty Eagles Ontario Cup 2009 Group Six Champions

The Erin Mills Soccer Club, decided to try and host the group round of the 2009 Ontario Cup.  So both the U14 boys and girls hosted teams from across the province on the turf fields at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga.  The turf fields were a blessing on opening day since it rained for the entire Saturday. 

Although it rained, many of the parents arrived very early, before the players, to set up the tents and helped to organize the proceedings for this event.  The Mighty Eagles were excited to finally get their opportunity to host and play in the prestigious Ontario Cup, a tournament established in 1901.  This year the main prize for this U14 group is a trip to the National Championships.

Despite drawing the very first game of the tournament, the Mighty Eagles played a strong first half and opened the scoring, jumping out to an early 2-0 lead, against a surprised team from Ajax.  In the second half the Mighty Eagles scored early again to go up 3-0.  However, The Ajax United Lightening, after recovering from their relatively long journey, was relentless and quickly converted their first opportunity, cutting the Mighty Eagles' lead to 3-1.  The remainder of the second half was more or less even, although Ajax carried some of the play, they were unable to come back, as the game ended 3-1.

In game two, the Mighty Eagles had to play a rested team from Ottawa barely ninety minutes after game one.  The Mighty Eagles started very flat, and appeared tired.  The score was even 0-0 at halftime.  After making a few adjustments, the Mighty Eagles scored two goals defeating a determined, but overmatched Goulbourn team 2-1.  At the end of the first day, the Mighty Eagles were top in the division, tied with Oakville Flames.

On Sunday, the weather was the complete opposite of the opening day.  There was nothing but sunshine, in the sky and plenty of heat, as hot as 85 degrees.  However, Erin Mills, having the good fortune of playing their first game in the afternoon, appeared rested and poised to succeed.  In the much-anticipated game with the only other undefeated team remaining in the tournament, the Oakville faithful were poised for a good battle.

It was Erin Mills, though, who displayed some outstanding individual and team play.  Many of the parents from opposing teams, who obviously love the game of soccer and their own fine teams, complimented the Mighty Eagles for their excellent display of soccer.  The Mighty Eagles were definitely the better team, on that day, convincingly winning 2-0.

So, as it turned out the two host teams from Erin Mills appeared ready to advance.  The Mighty Eagles’ brother team the boys, U14A Eagles, were also undefeated, at the same facility.  Many of the girls lined the sidelines to take in their match, while the boys returned the favour, arriving to watch and support, the Mighty Eagles, as they played their cross-town rivals from Mississauga, Dixie.  The Mighty Eagles scored two goals very early and went on to easily win their final match 5-0.  The Mighty Eagles, who won all four games out scoring their opponents 12-2, and recorded two consecutive shutouts.  After two consecutive years of being placed in the Ontario Cup’s so-called “group of death,” the Mighty Eagles finally advanced out of the group round.  Their reward is a meeting with a good team from London in the quarterfinal round.

Congratulations to the entire Erin Mills soccer club for doing a fine job hosting this event.  The parents made an excellent contribution to the success of this Ontario Cup tournament.  A special thanks to those parents, who amongst other things, set up, provided nourishment for the referees, provided free coffee for all spectators in the cold and rain on Saturday and to those who kept track of the game sheets and other required paperwork.

Thanks to some of the same parents & grandparents, who kept the girls rested and focused all weekend, and to all the supporters who attended all of our games, especially Joe.  Good Luck Mighty Eagles in the next round & girls continue to sign the guest book.

Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U14G Advance to the Final Four of the Ontario Cup 

After winning the group 6 round of the Ontario Cup, The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U14A girls advanced to quarterfinal Saturday on August 15th 2009.  This was the day that over 100 soccer teams across Ontario competed for their right to advance to the next round of the prestigious Ontario Cup.  Erin Mills traveled, on a coach bus, to London to play the first place team, from the Western Youth Soccer League the Nor’ West Shock. 

The Mighty Eagles appeared to be ready with plenty of water and sunscreen on an extremely hot day.  Erin Mills opened the scoring midway through the first half when the ball was headed into the net from a well played cross.  That 1-0 lead held up until the second half.  In the second half, the Shock came out strong led by their boisterous and at times hostile supporters. 

Their fan support and cheering paid off as London tied the score 1-1 early in the second half.  It appeared that Erin Mills was in trouble, but they made a few minor adjustments, which appeared to work.  Erin Mills quickly recovered and scored four unanswered goals to quiet the crowd and win the game.  In the end, the Mighty Eagles prevailed 5-1. 

The London players and their coaching staff were very gracious and sportsmanlike during the customary handshake, as many of the players wished the Erin Mills squad good luck in the next round.  The Mighty Eagles will need plenty of luck as they face the only undefeated team in the Ontario Youth Soccer League and the number one ranked team in the province, the Kitchener Spirit A team in the semi-finals on August 30th. 

The Mighty Eagles extended their weekend by traveling to Ottawa right after this Ontario Cup game to play Napean Hotspurs.  The Mighty Eagles were victorious there as well and returned home safe and sound after completing a grueling part of their schedule as they played three games in four nights.  Special thanks to all the parents who actually gave of their time to travel with the Mighty Eagles on their fifth annual bus trip, which has taken them, over the years to: Sudbury, Quebec City, New York, and New Jersey.

Thoughtful Thoughts...

Remember...you have to want what you have before you have what you want!

Sometimes the grass appears greener on another team, but the water bill is usually more expensive!

Coaches and Parents, alike, should not place themselves above the rules & regulations that they expect their daughters to follow!

The secret to a successful team is that there really is no secret.  We will reach our goals only through cooperation and hard work!

We may not be where we want to be yet, but we are sure much better than where we were!

A young girl's soccer career is like a piece of paper...on which every parent and/or coach who passes, writes an impression!

Our opponents may not remember what we say, but they will believe what we do on the field!

Players learn more from correction than from punishment.


“The brave player may not always win the ball, but a cautious player has already lost..”

Remember...  In everyone of our precious daughters is planted the seeds of an exceptional soccer player!!!

"The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it."


Parents come not to watch us coach, but rather to watch their daughter's play!!!

Mississauga Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U14A Champions of U15 Division Oshawa 2009

The U14A Erin Mills Mighty Eagles traveled to Oshawa for an early preseason tune-up.  This Frank Sobil tournament is notorious for its tough competition, as the U15 Division included teams from the Ontario Youth Soccer League, OYSL, and other excellent Elite teams, some from Eastern Ontario.  This is a very popular preseason tournament, which attracts many quality teams from Canada and the USA.  Despite the relatively long drive from Mississauga, the weather was great and the fields were good. 

As the coach predicted before the game, The Mighty Eagles struggled in their first outdoor game on grass.  Allowing the only goal of the tournament, the Mighty Eagles, in their first game lost 1-0 to Wexford Wolverines, on Saturday.

In game 2 the schedule was revised at the last minute so many of the Pickering players unaware of the changes, arrived merely twenty minutes before game time and without a proper warm-up, they struggled early, against a motivated and determined team.  The Mighty Eagles pounded Pickering 10-0 with two players scoring hat tricks. 

The playoff round began early Sunday morning.  With the loser going home, The Mighty Eagles faced a team from Ottawa, in the quarter final round.  In one of their best-played matches, the Mighty Eagles scored early in the first half and added two more in the second, one off of a header, to defeat Napean 3-0.

The road to the championship now went through their rivals in the OYSL.  In the semi-final against Richmond Hill, the Mighty Eagles played some inspired possession soccer and squeaked out a 1-0 victory to earn the chance to play in the championship final.

Despite being banged up and a bit tired, after having played two games already that day without substitutes; fielding only 11 players for the entire tournament, the Mighty Eagles faced their new friendly rivals, one of the best teams from their district, the OYSL Burlington Blue Devils.  As the wind played a factor, both teams dominated various parts of the game.  However, despite their opportunities neither team was able to score.  The regulation game ended in a scoreless draw.  After two short halves of overtime the game was settled with penalty kicks.  Here, as in the past, The Mighty Eagles’ Keeper was the star making three saves and leading the team to victory.

Congratulations to the entire Mighty Eagles team, players, coaches, managers, and especially the parents, for driving and caring for the players, all weekend.  Well done, Mighty Eagles, you, girls displayed tremendous team and individual skills throughout the tournament conceding only one goal, and won a prestigious tournament over two days without absolutely one substitution in a U15 division.

Mighty Eagles U14A Champions At Sahlens USA  2009 

The U14A Erin Mills Mighty Eagles traveled to New York State to play at Sahlens, USA.  This tournament is notorious for its tough competition at the U14 Division which included OYSL teams and a State champion team from Ohio.  Despite the relatively long drive on a very wet weekend, this is a very popular preseason tournament, which attracts many quality teams from Canada, as well. 

Well not only was the weather poor, but the schedule was revised at the last minute.  Many of the players arrived merely twenty minutes before game time and without a proper warm-up, the Mighty Eagles struggled early, against an Ajax Strikers team that had already played their first game.  In a well-played match the Mighty Eagles scored early and won the game 1-0. 

In game two, the Mighty Eagles faced one of the best teams from Ohio.  The Mighty Eagles played some inspired possession soccer and dominated most of the game but were unable to score.  The game ended in a scoreless draw.  The next game the Mighty Eagles faced another good team; St. Catherines from SRSL.  The Jets came at the Mighty Eagles and carried some of the early play.  However, after two quick goals the game was put out of reach, as the Mighty Eagles won 2-0. 

Despite being a bit tired and banged up the Mighty Eagles faced their new friendly rivals from Buffalo, EUSA, the host team.  Needing a win to secure the championship in the round robin format the Mighty Eagles scored very early and finally, after three draws in past meetings, defeated EUSA, 1-0.

Congratulations to the entire Mighty Eagles team, players, coaches, managers, and especially the parents, for driving across the border again.  Well done Mighty Eagles, you, girls displayed tremendous team and individual skills throughout the tournament and without four strong players, conceding absolutely no goals.

Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U13A Capture 2008 SRSL League Cup Finally!  

After three consecutive years of reaching the SRSL Elite League Cup Final, the Mighty Eagles finally captured the title that they have coveted since 2005.  In an unprecedented performance, the Mighty Eagles accomplished something no other SRSL 1995 girls team could ever do – defeat Brams A. 

The 8 team Elite tournament began back in July with the Mighty Eagles taking on  Welland, who were promoted to the Elite division in 2008.  Welland had surprised many teams this season, especially on their home pitch. So the Mighty Eagles were prepared for and got a very tough and well played match. On a relatively hot day, the Mighty Eagles took an early lead from a free kick.  Minutes later, the referee awarded Welland a penalty shot and they converted it.  It was not until extra time that the Mighty Eagles were able to score the game winner, 2-1, to advance to the semi-finals. 

In the semi-finals, the Mighty Eagles met Burlington, a team that they seem to meet in every Ontario Cup tournament, thus far.  Nonetheless, this was the League Cup and the Mighty Eagles, despite their mediocre showing in the league, always emerged ready to contest for the League Cup.  After a well played and pretty evenly matched teams, this game went to penalty shots.  It was here that the Mighty Eagles’ goalie not only made two saves, during the penalty shot round, but scored the clinching penalty to secure a trip to the final, against Brams A, for the third consecutive year. 

Now Brams A had never lost a game in their history of regular season and League Cup play since they entered the SRSL in 2005.  They were the defending Champions and were highly favoured to win.  However, someone forgot to tell the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles to concede, yet again.  The girls came out strong and carried a lot of the play, especially in the first half, when they opened the scoring off a corner kick which was sent into the box and later volleyed into the net for an early 1-0 lead.  Soon after, the Mighty Eagles almost made it 2-0, but were denied another goal by the cross bar.   

In the second half, the Mighty Eagles’ team played some superior defense, especially the back three, as they held off the challenges and persistent attacks by a determined Brams A team.  At times the game resembled a battle of control of one’s territory, on the wet, and slippery pitch, as both teams literally scratched and fought for every ball.  In the end, with less than ten minutes to play, the Mighty Eagles’ top striker took on two defenders and sent a beautiful left foot to the far post, from almost the corner flag into the top of the net to secure the 2-0 victory for the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles. 

Congratulations, to both teams, for their fine accomplishments in 2008.  However, it was the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles, who, many of the soccer critics and pundants, had counted out, like a defeated boxer, knockout, on the canvass, who were actually lifted up on their last day of the outdoor season.  The parents and especially the hard working and talented U13 girls of Erin Mills, displayed poise, determination and confidence as they climbed to the top, to not only, qualify for the OYSL in 2009, but to finally defeat their rivals; Brams A..   By winning the 2008 League Cup Championship, in their last game after losing their first game, the Mighty Eagles’ season undoubtedly exemplifies this endearing quote:  The race is not for the swift, but for those… 

Well done girls and good luck next season in the OYSL.

Mighty Eagles U13A Win the Tournament of Champions 2008 

The U13A Erin Mills Mighty Eagles traveled to Rochester, New York to play in the Tournament of Champions.  This tournament attracts and invites teams that have been champions in previous tournaments to compete free of charge in this pretigious event.  In the U13G division, teams competed in at least 10 games over four weekends for the right to play in Championship weekend.  

Well the weather was very good for the three hours drive, which produced various accounts at the USA border; some players waited almost 90 minutes to cross at the slow US border.  However, our next trip to the USA will be much smoother as we travel as a team by coach bus, to New Jersey.  Nevertheless, the soccer facility was impressive with two indoor fields and at least 12 pitches outside.

Again, a few players arrived merely thirty minutes before game time and without a proper warm-up, on an average pitch, they struggled early.  The Mighty Eagles were matched up against a competitive team from the local area; Rochester Futbol Club, who were undefeated throughout the tourney.  Despite having most of the play it was not until late in the second half that the Mighty Eagles earned the victory 2-0.  After the victory, they discovered that the Canadian customary hip hip hooray solute to the opposition was not returned by this US Club, who did not seem interested in shaking hands, either.  

In game two, the Mighty Eagles faced a very friendly team from Amherst New York on a better field, but had to wait an hour for the official to arrive.  The Mighty Eagles played some inspired possession soccer and defeated the Revolution 3-0.  Erin Mills were complimented by the Amherst team numerous times by both the coaches and their parents about our team chemistry, sportsmanship and especially about our ball movement. They welcomed us and wished us a save trip back home to Canada…a very class act!
 

Congratulations to the entire Mighty Eagles team, players, coaches, managers, and especially the parents.  Well done Mighty Eagles, you, girls displayed tremendous team and individual skills throughout the second tournament of the season, conceding absolutely no goals. Oh you looked so marvelous in your new tournament uniforms too!

Mighty Eagles U13A Finalists West Niagara 2008 

The U13A Erin Mills Mighty Eagles traveled to 10th Annual West Niagara Invitational in early May.  This tournament is notorious for it’s wet weather, and suspect field conditions.  Despite that, this is a very popular preseason tournament, which attracted 32 U13 girls’ teams, with sixteen teams in the North American Tier 1 division. 

Well the weather was good this year, but the QEW highway was closed making the trip quite eventful, especially for our first game against Kitchener. Many of the players arrived merely twenty minutes before game time and without a proper warm-up, on a horrendous pitch, they struggled early.  In the second half, the Mighty Eagles earned a penalty shot and won the game 1-0. 

In game two, the Mighty Eagles faced a very improved Barrie team on another poor field.  The Mighty Eagles played some inspired possession soccer and defeated Barrie 3-0. 

The last game of the day was played on the best field at this facility.  Despite being a bit tired the Mighty Eagles brought much offense to this game.  Playing against an over-matched but very friendly team from Ottawa the Mighty Eagles prevailed 6-0. 

Championship Sunday just happened to be the same day as Mothers’ day.  We are extremely proud and appreciate all the positive things that our mothers do for our players and this team.  The Quarterfinals was a match-up between two Elite SRSL teams; Welland and Erin Mills.  Welland came out strong and almost took the lead, but for an excellent save by the goalkeeper on a breakaway.  Eventually, The Mighty Eagles scored 2 goals in the first half and hung on to win 2-0.   

In the semi-final it was back to the poor fields against a team that some were surprised to see in the final four.  Scarborough, a well coached team, put up a great fight in a very close game.  The Mighty Eagles scored early and protected their lead to win 1-0.   

So they were now in the finals, undefeated and the only squad not to concede a goal in five games leading to the finals.  In the finals, the Mighty Eagles had most of the early play and chances in the first ten minutes, of the first half.  However, Wexford came back and scored a nice goal midway through the first half and added another one in the second.  The Mighty Eagles came back late in the game scoring one, but it was a case of too little too late, as Wexford won the game 2-1.

Congratulations to the entire Mighty Eagles team, players, coaches, managers, and especially the parents.  Well done Mighty Eagles, you, girls displayed tremendous team and individual skills throughout the first tournament of the season, conceding absolutely no goals up to the Championship final!

Mighty Eagles U13A Crowned 2008 Hangar League Champions     

Congratulations to the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U13A girls for being crowned the 2008 Hangar League Champions.  Playing at the U14 level at Downsview Park, the Mighty Eagles dominated this competitive division.  On the pitch, the girls played some fantastic soccer compiling a record of 15W - 1L - 3D.   

The girls represented the EMSC well while benefiting from the outstanding ADP programme that was well attended throughout the cold, dark days of winter.  The Mighty Eagles were in first place from the start of the season to the end.  Coupled with being Ontario Indoor Cup Finalists, the girls had an outstanding indoor experience, in 2008.   

Again, great teamwork girls, congratulations, and we hope to bring our indoor successes to the pitch during the upcoming outdoor season.

Ontario Indoor Cup Finalist 2008

The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles entered the much-anticipated 2008 Ontario Cup Indoor Cup, which began in December 2007 at the Ontario Soccer Centre.  In the preliminary round, EMA faced some tough competition. 

Their first opponent, Brams B, kept the game close in the first half.  However, EMA scored 4 goals in the second half to win 4-0.  Next up was a desperate Wexford team, needing a win to advance; they won a close game 2-1.  Facing elimination, the Mighty Eagles defeated a determined Vaughn squad 2-0.  The Mighty Eagles now had qualified for the final round in a group with the top ranked U13 team in Ontario, the Ajax Strikers.

In a highly well played match, the Mighty Eagles were four seconds away from a victory but had to settle for a 1-1, draw against Ajax Strikers.  In match two, The Mighty Eagles defeated an overmatched Ottawa team 3-1.  In their final match of the round, EMA beat Richmond Hill 1-0, which set up a semi-final match against the powerhouse Brams A Rebels.  

On Championship Sunday, EMA got off to a terrific start with two early goals to defeat the Rebels 2-0.  However, in the final, the Mighty Eagles again fell victim to a late goal, with 34 seconds remaining in the game and loss 1-0.  

Congratulations on a fine effort getting to the final of such a prestigious event.  We were entered in the most challenging group in the preliminary round, we did not get a bye to the final round, and we defeated the eventual winners in an earlier game!  Thanks to the parents for their support throughout the tournament.

  MIGHTY EAGLES 2007 LEAGUE CUP FINALISTS 

On Sunday September 9th the Mighty Eagles traveled to Hamilton for an early 9am game.  Our team spotted an excellent team (League & Cup Champions 2005-2007) an early first half lead.


Although there were a few moments where it looked like the Mighty Eagles would challenge for the Cup at 2-1, t
he remainder of the second half was all Brams, who defeated the Mighty Eagles, in Cup play for the third consecutive year.  Again, as in 2006, the girls finished as SRSL League Cup Finalists, because, they competed very well throughout the 2007 League Cup tournament. 

The first game of the League Cup, the Quarter- finals, in Milton, the Mighty Eagles dominated and frustrated a good Clarkson A team.  In the Semi-finals, the Mighty Eagles played quite an inspired game in Hamilton one Saturday afternoon, against, perhaps, an over-confident team, who had not lost to the Mighty Eagles all season, in three previous matches.  The Mighty Eagles advanced to the finals with a 1-0 victory over their rivals from the west, Burlington A.

Congratulations to the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U12G: 2007 SRSL League Cup Finalists.  Undoubtedly, their outstanding performance in the League Cup tournament makes them worthy of being ranked within the top three teams in the SRSL U12G, Elite Division & the province of Ontario for 2007!

Mighty Eagles U12G Finalists New York State Empire Cup 2007


The U12G Erin Mills Mighty Eagles travelled to Albany New York to compete in the prestigious 2007 Empire Cup.  The trip, via a beautiful coach bus, was quite enjoyable for the girls and their parents as they took in all the sights, music and motion picture DVDs on the seven-hour journey.  This tournament is becoming one of the premiere showcase tournaments, with a gold rating, in the New York State, area. The Capital district, located within the jurisdiction of New York State is a perfect location for hosting such a tournament, due to it’s proximity to major urban areas such as Boston, New York, Montreal, Buffalo and New Jersey. 


The U12 Girls division was truly international and quite competitive consisting of 10 teams with at least 6 District teams from the USA.  In their first of three very competitive matches on Saturday, the Mighty Eagles started their quest for the title with a game against the Long Island Junior Olympic Development Team, which had over 30 players on their active roster. After a scoreless first half the Mighty Eagles scored early into the second half and secured the win with two more goals, making the final 3-0 over the Tigers. 


In the second match, The Mighty Eagles played against a fine Dutch squad, called Dutch Total Soccer Feyenoord, the defending Empire Cup Champions from 2006. Our team from Mississauga was up for the challenge and a lesson in defending.  This DTS team played some of the best possession and passing soccer, which is a characteristic of all Dutch soccer at any level. The Mighty Eagles surprised this excellent American team and its fans with a hard fought 3-0 victory.  The girls had a difficult time enjoying this victory as one of their teammates had to be rushed to the hospital by an ambulance after the game  

Finally, after having an early relaxing supper, remaining cool and watching movies on the bus, a group of tired, yet inspired girls decided to dedicate the third game to their teammate in the hospital.  They managed to squeak out a 2-1 victory over the Long Island Junior Olympic Supersonics and finished the day undefeated a top their Hudson Division in-group 2.

Championship Sunday just happened to be the same day as the 2007 COPA America Final between Argentina and Brazil.  By now the Mighty Eagles were the talk of the tournament because of their sportsmanship, patriotism, large bus, friendly parents and superior soccer, especially after defeating the favourite DTS team.  In, perhaps, their easiest game of the tournament, the Mighty Eagles defeated The Nirvana Eagles 6-2, with five different players contributing to the goal scoring. 

So they were now in the finals, undefeated against the top US U12G team from group1; the local Alleycat Soccer Club.  In a hard fought battle that saw the Mighty Eagles come from behind twice to tie the game and send it into Overtime the Mighty Eagles lost in a penalty shootout and proudly claimed the runner-up trophy.

Congratulations to the entire Mighty Eagles team, players, coaches, managers and especially the parents.  Many American parents cheered for our Mississauga players and were amazed and shocked when they learned that our Erin Mills girls were just a club team.  “You should no longer go into anymore club tournament, you are simply too good for that now,” said one committee member as he handed us a flyer for another tournament in the US.

Well done Mighty Eagles, you, girls displayed tremendous team and individual skills throughout the tournament, convincingly won four consecutive games and were defeated only by penalty shots in the Championship final!

Erin Mills Mighty Eagles Ontario Cup Preliminary Round Champions 2007


The Mighty Eagles, having drawn a preliminary round date in early June of the Ontario Cup, traveled to Vaughn to tackle four worthy opponents from all parts of Ontario.  Although the grass was not cut on one field and a lawn mover was actually cutting field two upon their arrival to the facility, the Mighty Eagles were excited to finally get their opportunity to play in the prestigious Ontario Cup, a tournament established in 1901.


Despite the very poor field conditions, the Mighty Eagles opened the scoring fast and furiously, jumping out to an early 2-0 lead within the first 5 minutes of the kickoff, against a surprised team from London.  However, London City, after recovering from their long journey, was relentless and quickly converted their first opportunity, cutting the Mighty Eagles' lead in half. The Mighty Eagles responded, when the ball slipped through the London goalie’s hands making the score 3-1 after the first half.  The second half was more or less even as the Mighty Eagles, failed to score, despite numerous opportunities.  In fact, London City scored again to make the final 3-2.


In game two against Barrie, the Mighty Eagles started very flat, after having their lunch break!  After making a few adjustments the Mighty Eagles lead from start to finish, easily defeating a determined but overmatched Barrie team 7-0.  At the end of the first day, the Mighty Eagles were top in the division, tied with Welland.


On Sunday, it looked liked rain would spoil the tournament.  However, Erin Mills, having the good fortune of playing their first game late in the afternoon, appeared rested and poised to succeed.  In the much-anticipated game with the host team, who were competing well, early, in their league play, Vaughn needed to win to stay alive in the tournament, having lost 1-0 to Welland, on Saturday. 


It was Erin Mills, though, who displayed some outstanding individual and team play.  Many of the Vaughn parents, who obviously love the game of soccer and their own fine teams, complimented the Mighty Eagles for their excellent display of soccer.  The Mighty Eagles were definitely the better team, on that day, convincingly winning 5-0.


So, as it should be, the last game of the tournament would decide the eventual tournament winner.  It was that way, too, with the Mighty Eagles’ sister team the U14A Eagles, who were in tough, at the same facility, in their last game against a gritty team from Ottawa.  The Mighty Eagles watched the U14A Eagles, qualify for the main draw of the Ontario Cup defeating the Ottawa team, as the U12 girls prepared for a good Welland team.  The Welland team had only allowed one goal throughout the entire weekend. 

However, the Mighty Eagles scored two goals very early and converted a penalty shot in the first half and never looked back defeating Welland 3-0. Congratulations to the Mighty Eagles, who won all four games out scoring their opponents 18-2, while recording three consecutive shutouts.  Their reward was to be placed in the tournament round of the Ontario Cup’s so-called group of death! 

Thanks to the parents & grandparents, who kept the girls rested and focused all weekend, and to all the supporters who attended all of our games, especially Josef & Joe.  Good Luck Mighty Eagles in the next round & read the message from the VP of Erin Mills REP in the guestbook.

U11G Mighty Eagles Win 2006 Eagle Cup


 


Wow.  What a way to end the season.  The Erin Mills U11G Mighty Eagles won the prestigious 2006 Eagle Cup.  The team went undefeated throughout the Eagle Cup with a record of 4-0-1.  The Mighty Eagles overcame so much adversity and should be applauded for defeating their archrivals from the west the Waterloo Eagles 2-1 in the final of the Eagles Cup. 

It was the third time in two days that the two teams faced one another.  What’s more, it was the Mighty Eagles 7th game in three days.  Playing in their last U11G Premiere division game of the South Region Soccer League, the Mighty Eagles traveled to Waterloo Saturday morning for a 11am game with second place overall on the line.  Unfortunately, the Mighty Eagles lost 1-0 and settled a mere one victory behind 2nd place.  The Mighty Eagles quickly drove back to Mississauga to face Dundas, in their first of two games in the Eagles Cup.  The Mighty Eagles won 8-0 and then defeated Kingston 12-0 to complete a rather busy Saturday.

On Championship Sunday, the Mighty Eagles, in the morning, tied Waterloo A, 1-1 in their final preliminary game of the tournament.  In the playoff round, the Mighty Eagles needed overtime & penalty kicks (PKs) to defeat a very good Mississauga Falcons team.  So it was now off to the finals where the Mighty Eagles faced, yes, the Waterloo A Eagles, for the ninth time this season!  The Mighty Eagles soared in the game, scoring early & capturing the Erin Mills Eagle Cup Championship, 2-1 in (PKs!)

Congratulations to the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles who made the Eagle Cup, along with The Oakville Classic & the U12 Quebec Invitational, their third tournament championship in the 2006 season and more hardware for Josef’s Trophy Case at the Clubhouse!

  MIGHTY EAGLES 2006 LEAGUE CUP FINALISTS


On Saturday September 16th the Mighty Eagles traveled to Hamilton for an early 9am game.  Our team spotted an excellent team (undefeated in last 2 years of League & Cup play) an early 2-0 lead.
The remainder of the game, especially the second half, the Mighty Eagles battled and played superior defense.  Although the girls finished as finalists, lost 2-0, they competed very well throughout the League Cup tournament. 

The first game of the League Cup, the Preliminary round, Erin Mills defeated Oakville B.  In the Quarter finals, in Hamilton, the Mighty Eagles dominated and frustrated a good Kitchener A team.  In the Semi-finals, the Mighty Eagles played quite an inspired game in Caledon one early Saturday morning, despite missing four of their best players who were either “Cup Tied” or on vacation. The Mighty Eagles advanced to the finals with a 1-0 victory over their rivals from the west, Waterloo A.

Congratulations to the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U11G: 2006 SRSL League Cup Finalists.  Undoubtedly, their outstanding performance in the League Cup makes them worthy of being known as the best team (outside of the champions) in the SRSL U11 Première/First Division, for 2006!

Mighty Eagles U12G Tournoi National De Joliette  2006 Champions


The U11 Erin Mills Mighty Eagles travelled to Joliette Quebec to compete in the prestigious Tournoi National in the under twelve (U12) A division against 8 teams.  The trip, via a beautiful coach bus, was quite enjoyable for the girls and their parents as they took in all the sights and DVD movies on the seven hour journey.  We arrived in Joliette on Friday and settled in to a picturesque hotel set in the mountains which allowed for some spectacular views and pictures.  

In their first of three matches on Saturday the Mighty Eagles started their quest for the title with a 5-0 victory over Francs-Tireurs Boisbriand A.  In the second match, against Trois-Rivieres our very own team from Mississauga was again victorious winning 4-0. The highlight of this game was the second goal; which was headed into the net. Finally, after having an early supper, and being a bit tired, the girls squeaked out a 1-0 win over Michel Laser and finished a top their division in group 1.

Championship Sunday just happened to be the same day as the 2006 World Cup Final between Italy and France.  Since our girls wanted to capture their own championship they entered the semi-final determined to win.  In, perhaps, their best game of the tournament the Mighty Eagles crushed The Avalanche La Plaine 6-0. So they were now in the finals against the top undefeated U12 team from group 2; Meteores Cap-de-la-Madeleine.  In a hard fought battle the Mighty Eagles soared and scored a 3-0 victory to claim the championship trophy.

Congratulations to the entire Mighty Eagles team, players, coaches, managers and especially the parents, who were a bit surprised about how friendly and extremely complimentary the opposition Francophone people were throughout the entire Quebec tournament.  "The best trip ever," proclaimed one parent..."my daughter had a blast, no our entire family had just a wonderful time!" echoed one mother.  Many Quebec parents cheered for our Mississauga players and were amazed and shocked when they learned that our girls were only eleven years old, because of the manner in which Erin Mills displayed tremendous individual skill and ball possession throughout the tournament!

Alor, Tres Bien! Girls, you convincingly won all five games, you were not scored against and out scored your U12 opposition 19-0!

Mighty Eagles Finalists at 32nd Annual Waterloo Invitational 2006

The Erin Mills U11G Mighty Eagles competed in the Waterloo Invitational tournament which consisted of 12 teams in two divisions.  It was the second tournament in the month of June for the Mighty Eagles.  The team started off slowly again losing 2-1 to the Waterloo A team.  Without adequate recovery time between games Erin Mills was forced to play Welland in their second game only 45 minutes after completing their first game.  Needless to say the girls were tired which resulted in a 2-2 tie.  Now for their third and final game of the day the Eagles had to wait four hours.  The girls were victorious beating London 4-0.  Consequently, the team finished second in their division and qualified for the semi-finals.

Early Sunday morning the Mighty Eagles faced a formidable opponent from Ajax.  It was second time that these two strong teams met in the 2006 season.  In a hard fought battle where the wind played a factor in both halfs, the Mighty Eagles defeated Ajax United 2-1 in OT.  So it was off to the finals for the second consecutive year, as Erin Mills were Finalists in 2005, as well!

In the finals, Waterloo A, with the wind at their back, got off to a quick start scoring in the first minute of the game.  After that opportunity the game was played evenly by both teams.  The finals score was Waterloo A 1 Mighty Eagles 0.  Congratulations Mighty Eagles for another successful tournament.

Mighty Eagles win Bronze at Barrie Spiritfest 2006

The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U11G recently participated in the Spiritfest in Barrie.  There were 16 teams, the most in any division of the tournament competing for the Gold medal.  The Mighty Eagles were hoping for a decent result so early in the season after a rather difficult start in their league play.  Unfortunately, the Eagles had to battle not only the competition but the persistent rain that fell non stop throughout the opening day.

After getting off to a slow start, the Mighty Eagles' play improved  and got progressively stronger with each match.  Erin Mills won their division and advanced into the medal round with three other SRSL teams!  The Mighty Eagles finished the tournament with a 4-1 record, scoring 16 goals and allowing only two.  Congratulations to the entire team for winning the bronze medal.  Remember girls, "one wins a bronze medals but loses the silver."

Erin Mills Mighty Eagles Capture 2006 Oakville Sports Centre Tournament

The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles captured the championship in their very first 2006 indoor tournament.  The full field 11 v 11 Oakville Sports Centre tournament was an excellent way to start the New Year.  There were teams from all across Ontario including two fine squads from the East; Wexford Wildcats and Ajax United!

After a successful 2005 season the Eagles were poised to win the Oakville Cup.  In the first match the Eagles defeated a determined Erin Mills team 4-0.  Next game they played Etobicoke and defeated them 2-0.  The last game of the preliminary round had the Eagles facing the very talented Ajax United team.  In a close and well played match The Eagles came away with a 1-0 victory.  After capturing the division, the Eagles qualified for the finals. So it was off to the final, the final that all Erin Mills members had hoped for and a re-match of the 2005 Eagle Cup final; Erin Mills Mighty Eagles against Erin Mills Lady Eagles.  This time however the Mighty Eagles won 1-0.

Congratulations to The Mighty Eagles on a fine tournament that saw a team come together to play better after each game.  The Mighty Eagles, in fact, were not scored on throughout the entire tournament!  Thanks to the parents too, especially the Bombens for their kindness and generosity. Many individuals, rival coaches and parents were impressed with your play girls.  Stay humble as we always are and continue to work hard in the future because its definitely bright for the Erin Mills Mighty Eagles!

Team 
Sunday November 06 2005




The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U11G
were the very first Rep soccer team to use the New stadium in Mississauga. The carpet or artificial turf at St. Marcellinus Catholic Secondary School is quite amazing.  Although the field was built primarily for football, it has all the regular soccer/football markings in yellow.  The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles like to thank the principal, John McAllister, for allowing our training session with the prestigious Even Pellerud.


 


Canadian Women National Team Head Coach Even Pellerud conducted a training session for our very own Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U11G and John Moniz's Erin Mills U12A, whose team worked with Even for 90 minutes after our session.  Most of this event was captured by Rogers T V Mississauga & was aired on a Wednesday in November, as part of their community based programming.

At the end of the wonderful session, Even posed for individual and team pictures with both Erin Mills Teams.  A couple of the Mighty Eagles U11G players Courtney & Michaela even received a personalized, autographed copy of Even's new book Coaching & Leadership in Woman's Soccer.

Parents, coaches and especially the Erin Mills U11 & U12 players were thrilled for this once in a lifetime opportunity.  We have to thank Mr Catling, for all of the professional pictures that he took during the event and for this unique opportunity to train with the Canadian Women's National Soccer Head Coach.

The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U10G won the Brantford Classic Soccer Tournament.  They competed against sixteen teams from the southern part of Ontario.  In the two day event, the Mighty Eagles won six consectutive games & were not scored against throughout, the entire tournament.  Nine different members contributed to the team's fourteen goals, including our goalie!

Winning this tournament is quite an accomplishment and the players are thrilled since they were finalists in their last two tournaments in Waterloo and Sudbury.  The development of the players and this team has been remarkable this season.  It appears that the girls are enjoying playing soccer and get tremendous support and encouragement from their parents!  It was nice to see the girls show their appreciation to their parents at the awards ceremony.

Congratulations girls for both, winning the Brantford Classic tournament and a sucessful season thus far.  Remember to remain humble, continue to work hard at practice & at home!

U10G Mighty Eagles Finalists in Sudbury U11 Tournament


The Erin Mills Mighty Eagles U10G participated in the Sudbury Panhellenic Tournament. 
After enduring a long coach bus ride to Sudbury, the team arrived safe, sound and ready to play. 
The girls and their parents were great ambassadors for our club, in Sudbury, as the Mighty Eagles
competed a year up the entire weekend, against U11 teams.  The tournament consisted
of two U11G divisions, with five teams in each.  The Mighty Eagles won five games, were
not scored against until the final game and outscored their opposition 18-1 while receiving
scoring from seven different players.

Reaching the finals in an U11 tournament is quite the accomplishment for any team commented
one of our parents.
 In fact, throughout the tournament the Sudbury residents commented about
our team's strong play on and off the ball.  Others were amazed that we were an U10 team! 
Opposition coaches, too, whose teams were substantially larger, complimented our team's
overall play.  Congratulations to all of the Mighty Eagle girls and Thank-You parents for bringing
your families on the bus to Sudbury, thus creating one big, diverse Erin Mills family.

U10G Mighty Eagles Finalists In Waterloo Invitational

The Mighty Eagles travelled to Waterloo in search of their first tournament victory for the 2005 outdoor season.  The Eagles were in one division of a ten team tournament.  The top two teams in each division, after playing each of their division opponents once, would reach the final.

The Eagles, started slowly with a victory over Waterloo B 3-0.  They dominated a weaker Saltfleet team 6-0.  Next it was Kitchener who the Eagles defeated 3-0.  It was not until the Eagles played Guelph, did any of their opponents score a goal.  With a trip to the finals already a certainty, the Mighty Eagles, actually came from behind to defeat an inspired Guelph team 2-1.

In the final against their cross town rivals, the Mighty Eagles matched up equally well against a strong Brams team.  In the end, the Eagles lost 1-0 in a, relatively, close match.  Congratulations, Mighty Eagles on reaching the finals of this prestigious Waterloo event!
