Two of our very own Cumberland players will be going to Spain in 2019 to represent Canada at the prestigious Danone Nations Cup. Peyton and Danika made it through two difficult and stressful rounds of try-outs here in Ottawa with their peers and then in Toronto to finish among the top 24 girls out of over 1000 trialists from Ontario and Quebec giving them the opportunity to play one game for a chance to go on and represent their country in Spain next year at the world finals of the Danone Nations Cup. They were paired together on the Canada white team with 10 other talented players and managed to grind out a 1-0 victory over Canada red to send them on to represent Canada next year in Spain.
A huge Congratulations to both Danika and Peyton on this remarkable accomplishment. We know they will represent Ottawa, and the Cumberland well. You can follow the Danone Nation’s Cup here: https://www.danonenationscup.com/
