Molson Challenge Cup - July 30 - July 31, 2011

Two very big games this weekend

Game 1. ---------Saturday July, 30 - KGV - 6 pm : CBS vs Feildians

This game very well could decide the 4th and final play-off position for Labor Day Week-end. To-date both teams have played 14 games and each team has 6 games remaining. Currently, the Feildians are 1 point up on CBS. CBS opened the season appearing to be very strong but their play has dwindled as of late. While the Feildians started slowly but have changed things around as the season progressed.

Should be interesting !

Final Score

CBS - 0 vs Feildians - 0


Game 2. ---------Sunday July, 31 - Smallwood - 2 pm : Holy Cross vs Mount Pearl

Quite a different scenario will exist with this contest. Holy Cross, the 2011 favorites are presently undefeated and are definitely the team to beat this season. Actually, Cross are a very good team. However, Mount Pearl are a much improved team and are certainly talented enough to challenge Holy Cross and even pull an upset. They are also a very good team. This is must see game that I highlighted on the schedule some time ago. This game will be a good measure for both teams. It could even be a preview match of things to come later this year.

Should be another interesting contest !

Holy Cross and Feildians shut-out their opponents.

Holy Cross -1 vs C.B.S. -0

Dunn leads Holy Cross to another victory

Rookie scoring sensation Mike Dunn scored Holy Cross's only goal to lead, an undefeated, Holy Cross team to a very hard fought 1-0 victory over C.B.S. Holy Cross came out in the 1st half, with all guns ablaze, had three early chances and at the 22 mark Mike Dunn struck the ball, showing his athleticism, while scoring on a beautiful shot. This was Dunn's 6th goal of the season and he leads all rookies in the goal scoring department. After the goal Holy Cross slacked off and C.B.S. dug in and they took it to the Holy Cross team. C.B.S. moved the ball, working the middle of the field. As a result of their efforts and ball movement they were constantly penetrating the Holy Cross back line. Actually, C.B.S. were very unfortunate not to have gained a point or even a victory in this match. However, the confidence that C.B.S. gained from this contest may be something that they will use in the second half of the season.
Feildian's defeat U-18's
In an earlier match, also played at KGV, the Feildians defeated the winless St. John's U-18 by a 1-0 score. Tyler Winsor scored Feildians lone goal while David Hickey registered the shut-out. To-date the St. john's U-18, who are playing in the Challenge Cup League on an exhibition basics, are winless in 12 games, have scored only 4 goals while they have allowed 45 .
