Lyons roar to victory in league championship

SAM LASKARIS More from this author

May. 25, 2005

Former national team player Tom Kouzmanis had an inkling his high school girls soccer team would be a decent one this season.

He just didn't know how good they'd be.

This marks the first year that Kouzmanis, who toiled for the Canadian men's squad from 1995-97, is coaching the William Lyon Mackenzie Lyons.

"My whole job was to continue that tradition," Kouzmanis said.

And he's done just that.

The Lyons won all seven of their regular season matches in the Toronto District Secondary School Athletic Association's North Region.

The Lyons then reeled off three straight playoff victories to capture the North Region crown.


William Lyon Mackenzie edged Newtonbrook 3-2 in the league final held this past Wednesday.

Lyons' striker Sara Fairweather scored all three of her club's goals.

Despite only being in Grade 10, Fairweather was a force throughout the year for the Lyons. She averaged almost three goals per game.

Another offensive star for the club was striker Angela DiNardo, who is only in Grade 9.

The Lyons' defence was anchored by Ali Silvestri.

William Lyon Mackenzie was rather dominant in league action. The Lyons scored 50 goals in their 10 regular season and playoff contests while allowing just three goals.

The club was also hoping for some more glory this week.

The Lyons were one of four teams entered into a AAA qualifying tournament for next month's provincial championships.

William Lyon Mackenzie was scheduled to play its semifinal contest yesterday (Tuesday), against the Leaside Lancers. The game was held after The Mirror's press deadline.


Scarborough's Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate and Etobicoke's Martingrove Collegiate were scheduled to play in yesterday's other semifinal.

The two winners will then meet tomorrow (Thursday). And the winner from that contest will advance to the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) AAA tournament, scheduled for June 2-4 in Kitchener.

OFSAA is also running tournaments next month at the A, AA and AAAA levels.

Kouzmanis liked his team's chances of winning this week's qualifying tourney.

"We've got a very strong defence with some hard working girls," he said. "And up front, we can definitely score goals."
