LaSalle Athletics U11 Teams Win Gold and Silver at Chatham Summer Gold Tournament
The LaSalle Athletics U11 Gold and Green teams represented the club exceptionally well at the Chatham Summer Gold tournament, with the Gold team winning Gold and the Green team winning Silver.

With a complete rainout on the Saturday, all teams had to play four consecutive games on the Sunday, and the LaSalle Athletics teams were certainly up to the challenge.

LaSalle Green made it to the final with a 2-1 record, including a close, hard fought win over Chatham and a dominant victory over Enniskillen.

LaSalle Gold started the day with a 1-0 win over Stratford, in an awesome 1-0 defensive gem, and followed that up with victories over Corunna and Enniskillen.

In the championship final, LaSalle Gold completed its undefeated streak at the tournament and won Gold with a high-powered offence and stingy defence.


After the championship game, the LaSalle Gold team presented the Chatham organization with a slew of concession items it had purchased to replenish the Chatham canteen, which unfortunately was the recent victim of a theft. Chatham was extremely grateful for the amazing act of kindness and expression of community spirit.
