Fall sports teams continue winning tradition
|Thursday, 10 November 2011|
On Friday, November 4th, the Bigside boys soccer team won the CISAA league Division II championships. TCS earned the right to host the playoffs following a 5-1 regular season record, giving up just three goals all season. Goalkeeper Cameron Brice-Elion came up big once more in the semi-finals against Holy Trinity School, leading TCS to a 1-0 win on a late-game goal by team captain Henry Cranfield. Cameron recorded his second shutout later in the day, when TCS avenged its loss in the finals last year by scoring a 3-0 victory over St. Andrew’s College. All three goals were scored by Calum MacCoubrey.
A week prior, on Saturday, October 29th, the Under-14 boys soccer team won the CISAA Division III title. With an undefeated regular season, TCS won the right to host the championships. The team’s winning ways continued as they beat Greenwood College by a score of 5-0 in the semi-finals and then triumphed over Montcrest School in the final, 6-1.
This past weekend, Ali Parke and Oliver Blecher represented TCS at the OFSAA Cross Country Championships in Ottawa. Both runners had excellent results, with Oliver placing 25th in the province and Ali finishing 146th.

Littleside field hockey made a great comeback this season, winning silver in the CISAA finals on Wednesday, October 26th, despite heading into the playoffs in last place in the league. Playing host to Lakefield College School, TCS won its semi-final 2-0 on goals by Osas Edebiri and Sam Cameron, with netminder Andrea Hotte recording the shutout. The final was also a tight match, tied after the first half until eventual winner Villanova pulled off the win, 2-0. The girls played with passion, dedication, determination and the true values of teamwork, says coach Ally O’Grady.
Bigside field hockey had a stellar season, narrowly missing CISAA gold. The team earned a berth in the playoffs on a win over St. Johns-Kilmarnock, the first time TCS has qualified for the final four. After beating Nichols in the semi-finals, the team faced Appleby in the championship match. The two teams battled to a scoreless tie with just minutes remaining when Appleby finally managed to score the lone goal of the game.
The field hockey teams capped off their seasons with a twist: on Friday, November 4th, they challenged faculty and staff to a field hockey match. Headmaster Stuart “Danger” Grainger, Michel “The Bullet” Cameron, Pam “Defense” Dew and more squared off against the players from Littleside, Middleside and Bigside in a fun game where even some of the boys wore kilts!
The Bigside girls basketball team is still in action this week, competing in the CISAA playoffs at Ridley College, and, on Wednesday, November 16th, the team will host the OFSAA qualifier here at TCS. Game time is 4:00 p.m. and we hope everyone will come out and cheer the girls on!
The first term in sports officially concludes on Friday, November 18th with Fall Athletic Awards at 7:00 p.m. in the Dick and Jane LeVan Theatre (click here for details). The next day, TCS hosts the 116th running of the Oxford Cup (click here for details).
