Niagara Falls Springettes Soccer Team 1980

In the fall of 1980, The Niagara Falls Springettes ladies Soccer Team captured the Ontario Cup Championship in Oshawa against their arch-rivals the St. Catharines Jets. The scoreless first half was a hard fought contest especially by Margaret Ainslie, who deflected a shot by Debbie Ohlson and made the first goal and Betty Dow clinched the win with her shot in the right hand corner. Great playing by Lori Georgieff, Susan Ohlson, Carol Magda and Cheryl Medvesky kept the Jets off the scoreboard.
The Springettes became the first Niagara Falls Women's Soccer Team to win a Provincial Title along with five league Championships and four Play-off Championships. Truly a fine inspiration to all soccer enthusiasts.
