North London Galaxy win Jubilee national title
London Community News
North London Galaxy are taking home the 2012 Jubilee Trophy senior women’s title after beating last year’s national champs Surrey United 1-0 in the final Monday (Oct. 8) at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex in Manitoba.
Natalie McCabe put in the lone goal of the game in the 42nd minute, marking the first point against the top seeded B.C. representative team after they didn’t concede a goal in the four-game round robin.
This is the first time North London has won the Jubilee Trophy, despite the women winning four provincial titles in the last seven years. The championship win also comes four years after the Galaxy were defeated 3-2 in the 2008 finale to Halifax City — the closest North London had come to winning the national title.
Rebecca Jefferson scored a pair of goals in a 2:0 victory over Holy Cross to clinch first place in Group 2 and earn a birth to the final.
