It is with privilege GCFC and their coaches recognize the valiant efforts of each and every one of the German Canadian Blaze upon winning their second division east league title this 2012 outdoor season (LAWSL). Together we experienced a journey unique in that a team with such diversity, whom had not played or practiced together, literally jelled from day one as a unit. With exception of one game we enjoyed an undefeated season. Add to that our very own Jessica Bergsma deservedly won the scoring title!

Front to back our ladies “blazed” out of the gate remaining on the front foot. We maintained a possession rate and finished with a plus minus that most teams/coaches only “dare” to achieve. Every one of our ladies contributed to the score sheet yet worked together to defend with equal attention. Our creative flare and style of play is rarely seen in teams let alone a Second Div ladies squad. I realized it was a banner year when one of the harshest criticisms received was, “your ladies almost share the ball around too much!”

The Blaze’s success was due a combination of athleticism, technical ability, on-field work ethic, vision BUT, more importantly a true Respect for not only the game but everything that comes part in parcel of that. A team Beautiful inside and out… who displayed “Grace in victory and defeat”…. I will always remain proud the 2012 GCFC Blaze shined as true ambassadors for, “The Beautiful Game”.
