(WINDSOR, ON) – Tecumseh Visa senior girls prevailed 1-0 over the London entrant in the University of Windsor’s Invitational Girls’ Soccer Tournament at Alumni Stadium yesterday, prior to the Windsor Stars international friendly against Detroit City FC. The finals were the culmination of a 4-day competition featuring the best of girls high school soccer in southern Ontario.

Trailing 1-nil at half time, London fought off an determined Tecumseh side bent on extending their lead, and nearly scored the tying goal seconds before full time to force penalty kicks. However, the Vista keeper tipped the shot over the net to preserve the shutout win.
