First senior boys’ soccer title for Emmanuel Christian

FERGUS – The Emmanuel Christian Eagles claimed their first District 4 high schools senior boys’ soccer title Monday with a 2-1 victory over the defending champion Westside Thunder at Victoria Park.

The Eagles rallied from an early deficit for the win.

Harrison MacLeod gave Westside the early lead as he scored in the first five minutes of the match on a wet Monday.

That goal would end up being the only goal of the first half, but Emmanuel Christian came back for the win with a pair of goals by Ivan Kruizenga.

Emmanuel Christian will advance to the CWOSSA A championship tournament at Delhi in May, 2018.



The Centre Dufferin Royals of Shelburne retained the junior boys’ title with a 2-1 win in penalty kicks over the Norwell Varsity Reds Monday at the Palmerston arena fields.

Scoring details were not reported.

The Royals advance to the CWOSAA junior tournament Thursday and Friday at the Gryphon Soccer Complex.
