About: The Ottawa TFC under-17 girls’ soccer team made history as the region’s first Canadian champions at the top youth level when they downed Lakeshore 2-1 at the Oct. 9-14 Toyota National Championships in PEI. OTFC earlier posted 3 wins and a tie on consecutive days to reach the final, but earlier hand-written notes from their coach and OTFC’s Got Talent contests played as big a part in the winning formula as their on-field play.
