With the majority of these players used to competing against each other at the local level, this group of boys has shown team chemistry that will be unmatched by many of their competitors. With incredible performances from star goalie Gaurav Ghai and a solid structure, this team will look to carry the ball from their own end and get it to their top-scoring forwards Justin Mann and Josiah Campbell to finish it off. Be prepared for this team to pull off a huge upset as one of the underdogs going into Nationals.

As the U-16 Girls are forced to wait another week for their tournament to begin, this only means they have a bit more time to prepare to face the top provinces in the country. This team is young, fast, and ready to prove that they are not to mess with. With many options in the net and in the midfield, this team should have no problem rotating the squad to stay fresh for their tournament.
