Steve Delong's first year of Challenge Cup Soccer in Newfoundland will be a memorable one. The diminutive player, who hails from Saskatchewan, is a gifted goal-scorer and Holy Cross benefited from his talents. He was named to the Provincial All -Star team, won League MVP, and was voted NLSA's Sr. "Player of the Year" . He won the Wils Molloy "Golden Boot Award" for winning the scoring championship with 21 goals. He netted two more goals at the Nationals in Winnipeg. His winning goal against Nova Scotia was a beauty. It was scored in the dying seconds of the match and it allowed Holy Cross to advance to the National Quarter Finals.
Coach's Corner Comments : Steve had a great 1st year of Challenge Cup soccer in NL. Despite his 21 goals , he is sort of a "silent player" on the field but very a gifted sniper in the box and on the score sheet.
