On Sunday, July 29, 2012 the Vaughan Azzurri played the Oakville Girls A in the Final on Sunday at 10:00 am once again at the Soccer Centre in Vaughan. It was a very hot day and the Azzurri played their A game. Oakville A was a complete team. A team that was very well balanced and fit. The Azzurri girls outchanced them and deserved better results. This was a 1-0 loss but to Coach Vito this was a win for our girls. They followed the system to perfection and with some luck they could have won this game.
