Wexford teams shine at national soccer championships

The Wexford United soccer team was crowned Ontario Cup champions after a convincing 5-0 victory over the Welland Wizards in the Under 17 Boys Tier 1 Division final on Sept. 20 in Vaughan.

Daniele DeFusco scored the impressive opening goal to take the lead while Danny Lopez and Luke Mollet secured the victory scoring two goals each. A week earlier, the Wexford Heat U16 boys fell just short of their own Ontario Cup provincial championship after losing 4-0 to Ajax Gunners on Sept. 13.
