First Four 2019 Ontario Cup champions Crowned
Ontario Soccer – Vaughan SC wins sixth straight U-21 Men’s Ontario Cup title
Saltfleet Stoney Creek, Erin Mills and Glen Shields round out the weekend winners
July 22, 2019
Vaughan, ON – The first four Ontario Cup Finals of 2019 took place on Sunday, as the U-18 and U-21 divisions wrapped up their campaigns at the Ontario Soccer Centre.
The full weekend of action included the Ontario Cup Semi-Finals, which took place the day prior, and featured some of the best soccer-for-life competition from across the province.
On Sunday, a familiar storyline emerged as Vaughan SC captured their sixth straight U-21 Men’s Ontario Cup title. It was 2013 the last time a team from Vaughan did not lift the U-21 Ontario Cup. No other team has managed to win the U-21 Men’s title in back to back years, let alone six times.
Elsewhere on Sunday, Saltfleet Stoney Creek won the U-21 Women’s Ontario Cup in a penalty thriller, Erin Mills SC won the U-18 Boys Ontario Cup thanks to a pair of spectacular goals. And Glen Shields downed Paris FC 2-0 to win the U-18 Girls Ontario Cup.
Full recaps, video, photos and highlights from each match can be found below.
