Gloucester Hornets clinch three ERSL league titles and counting
By Fred Sherwin

It's been a banner year so far for the Gloucester Hornets soccer club which has clinched three Eastern Regional Soccer League titles in the past week with more to come.

The Hornets girls U15 Impact premier team is the latest squad to lay claim to an ERSL crown, doing so with a 3-0 win over the Nepean Hotspurs on Monday. The win put them four points clear of Cumberland United with only one game left in the season. The only thing left to be decided is whether or not Marie Chevalier can win the scoring title over Kemptville's Lauren Bellefontaine who trails her by one goal with one game remaining.

The girls U14 Attack Gold premier team laid claim to their title with a 5-1 win over Glengarry on Aug. 17, and then capped an undefeated season with a 2-1 win over Cumberland United on Aug. 21.

The team's leading scorer was Kerline Milord with 15 goals in 13 regular season games. Kalie Rheaume and Annika Marshall contributed nine and five goals respectively, while Emma Denneumoustier-Leblanc and Aicha Ducharme-Leblanc added four goals apiece and keeper Anna Baker registered five shutouts.

The girls U13 Impact regional team also won a championship banner with a clean slate, giving the Hornets a league title at the U13, U14 and U15 age levels, all on the girls side. Their leading scorer was Julia Barlas with nine goals, while Isabelle MacInnis, Sarah Gebreu and Shaelyn Stanton each scored six.

The Hornets U14 Impact girls regional team is in the running to win a fifth title for the club. They currently trail Kingston United by three points with two games in hand. The championship could very well be decided during a home-and-home series against Kingston over the next two days. A pair of wins would almost certainly lock up the title for the Hornets, while a pair of losses would likely put the title out of reach. A split would make life interesting.

While the girls have been racking up the banners for the Hornets so far this season, a couple of boys teams have their eyes on an ERSL title as well.

A win in their final game of the regular season on Thursday would give the U16 Impact the league title. A tie or loss, however, would open up the door to the Ottawa South United Force who would need to win both of their remaining games to steal the crown away from the east end team.

The U14 Attack premier team also has their destiny in their own hands. They lead the OSU Force White team by one point with four games remaining, the final two of which will be against each other.

If all goes well for the various Hornets teams, the club could emerge from the 2014 campaign with six championships banners to hang in their clubhouse and they are also in the running for two ERSL Cup titles in the girls' U14 and boys' U13 divisions. The finals will be played on Sept. 14.
