This is the second time the U10 girls' team has been named a finalist in BMO's national grassroots soccer program.

"It's a first for BMO to have a repeat winner," said François Hudon, Senior Vice-President, Quebec Division & Co-Head, North American Specialized Sales. "The team spirit and pride these girls have for the game and their commitment to their community makes it easy to see why the judges nominated them two years in a row."
