The Feildians defeated the Laurentians in their 1st outing by a 2- 1 score. St. lawrence will be back to avenge this lost with a couple new additions in the line -up - Tyler Forsey & Richard Kelly.

Long time rivals Holy Cross & Laurentians
hit the field on Sunday

On Sunday the Larentians will play the province's number one seeded men's Challenge Cup team for the past three seasons, Holy Cross/Kirby Group. Holy Cross, again in 2012, are supporting the best record in the league. They have the leagues most prolific goalscorer , Steve Lelong and they are again illustrating numbers to show why they are the best defensive record in the league.        However, their one and only lost (4-3)  came to the Laurentians three weeks ago at KGV. That match was the best game of Challenge Cup that I've wittnessed in years. There were some great goals scored and both teams played with heart and displayed toughness.. The referree , Mike Edmunds worked hard for his pay and he wasn'y shy in showing both teams who was the boss, he dished cards  like he was at a bingo game. Fans surely saw great entertainment and  got their moneys worth. Now will we see the same this Sunday at 2 PM.? 

Stay tuned and I'll see you at KGV this weekend to watch soccer at it's best !
