Megan Catling's second goal of the game with just a few seconds remaining in regulation time gave Christ the King's junior Jaguars the school's first-ever Halton high school soccer title last week in Burlington, a dramatic 4-3 triumph over Oakville's Holy Trinity. Both teams hadn't lost or tied a game in the regular season and playoffs (8-0) heading into the match, but the Jaguars were the more aggressive side out of the gate, building a 3-0 lead early into the second half on a pair of goals by Amanda Ferreira and another from Catling. Holy Trinity stormed back, however, tying the game with five minutes left in the half before Catling rose above the Titan defenders and headed in the winner about 15 seconds before the referee blew the final whistle. CTK's junior girls also played in a thrilling Halton semi-final contest last week, requiring extra time to defeat Loyola 3-2 in Georgetown. Midfielder Krysta Landry scored two stunning goals off free kicks from long distances, including the clincher in the first overtime period. Christina Bruno had opened the scoring for the home side while goalkeeper Brittney Metcalfe made several key saves. There is no OFSAA tournament at the junior girls' level.
