UCC wins CISAA varsity soccer championship

Varsity soccer trophy

Captains Kal Shaw and Darwin Jamal receive the championship trophy from UCC principal Sam McKinney.

Upper Canada College’s varsity soccer team repeated as Conference of Independent Schools Athletics Association (CISAA) champions after a 4-0 home field win over St. Michael’s College School in the final.

Joey Richmond scored two goals, both assisted by PJ Bujouves, a minute apart late in the first half to give the Blues a 2-0 lead at halftime. Seyon Rajadurai followed with a pair of goals of his own in the 60th and 84th minutes, and the UCC defence remained unbroken as it issued a clean sheet.

Thus the Blues followed their regular season title with a 4-0 championship final win. The team also kept its streak of never losing when reaching a CISAA final alive in the process.

The Blues have won 10 CISAA championships since 2004 and this latest victory capped off a season in which they won 10 games and lost just once. They scored 62 goals while allowing 15 and posted five shutouts under coaches Premek Hamr and Richard Turner.

The Blues also made it to the semi-finals of the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools National Soccer Tournament last month.
