Northumberland sports in brief

This past season Northumberland United U15 embraced the challenge of competing in the CSL with a smaller roster and players with many outside commitments.

The boys played well and finished the league with a 7 - 3 - 8 record. This was good enough for 12 place and just enough to qualify for another year in the CSL. In 2018, the CSL will be a 16 team league and the highest level of soccer in the province.

They will compete against top teams from Durham, Toronto, and York Region an incredible accomplishment for a team from the Northumberland area.

The team had a strong second half of the season winning with some strong performances against Pickering, Woodbridge, Stouffville and Toronto High Park. Led by the creative play making of Rowen Sinyard Smith, the boys offensive output increased dramatically. Koby Read had a team high 4 goals against Woodbridge and Evan Lindholme was dominant against Pickering.

The leadership of Carmelo di Lio, Ben Nairn and Graydon Nisbet was on display when the team battled to a 1-1 draw, despite being short a player for the entire match. Nick LeFave and Matthew Enns adjusted to new roles this season and were instrumental in bringing balance and consistency to key positions. Liam Harrington and Carter Shaw continued to bring a strong compete level and athleticism that is necessary for the success of this team. The versatility of Curtis Lindholme and strong soccer skills of Jordan Caravaggio were critical in the final stretch of the season.

Mason Dixon continued to contribute to the teams success, playing in his first year at the regional level. The team was aided by several call ups from the U14 team including Drake, Isaac, Mason and Parker.
