The Holy Trinity Falcons senior girls 'AA' soccer team completed the round-robin portion of last week's EOSSAA tournament with 2 wins, finishing first in their pool. The Falcons defeated Embrun and Thousand Islands, both by a score of 1-0. The goal scorers were Morgan Zappia in game one and Kelly Brissard in game two, while Madison Ruffo earned both shutouts.  

HT moved on to play Arnprior in the semifinal and once again was victorious, and punched a ticket to the EOSSAA final with a 1-0 victory. Lily Bacchiochi notched the goal, while Ruffo picked up her third shutout.

The final was a rematch of game one where the Falcons faced Embrun for the EOSSAA championship. The Falcons had to settle for silver, though, as their storybook season came to an end with a 3-1 loss.
