With the CBN Light­ning split into colour-themed squads for its third an­nual Ir­ish Cup in­door soc­cer tour­ney it only seemed fit­ting the team wear­ing green would win.

With the CBN Light­ning split into colour-themed squads for its third an­nual Ir­ish Cup in­door soc­cer tour­na­ment March 12-13, it seems fit­ting the tour­ney was won by the team wear­ing green.

CBN Light­ning Green, led by team cap­tain Ryan Daw­son, de­feated CBN Light­ning Gold to win the Ir­ish Cup, while CBN Lighting Blue won the bronze medal over CBN Lighting Red on the strength of a penalty-shot goal by Skyler Lush-Miller. Winning team mem­bers in­cluded Ryan Daw­son, Colby McCabe, Jessie Clarke, Dy­lan But­ler, Aaron Bat­ten, Shawn Bussey, Lakeisha But­ler, Jamie McHugh, Vanessa Linthorne and Va­lerie Croke.

Light­ning team man­ager Robert Tar­rant said he’s not sur­prised that the pop­u­lar­ity of the tour­na­ment - held at All Hal­lows Ele­men­tary for play­ers in Grades 4 to 7 - is grow­ing.

“ This tour­na­ment is the high­light of our win­ter soc­cer pro­gram. The ex­cite­ment builds through­out March and we get chil­dren who have never played soc­cer be­fore reg­is­ter for this event,” he said in a press release. “ We were re­ally hop­ing we could in­vite clubs from out­side this year but our num­bers were just too large at the club level.”
