The U14 New Canaan Red girls soccer team ended its season by hosting a four-team tournament on Sunday.
New Canaan opened the tournament by defeating "C" division rival Darien for the third time this season, 2-0, in a tightly contested match. Second half goals from Sally Clayton and Katie DeMarino were the difference.
The "A" division Ridgefield Razors defeated the "B" division Wilton White team 4-0 in the second game, to set up a New Canaan vs. Ridgefield championship game.
Ridgefield got on the board 25 minutes into the game, and tremendous goalkeeping from New Canaan's Kylie Murphy kept the score at 1-0 at halftime. Ridgefield's speed and technical superiority enabled them to tack on two more second half goals for a 3-0 victory.

For the second week in a row, New Canaan played competitively with a team two divisions higher. An expected promotion to the "B" division in the spring should bring good competition and more experience to the New Canaan team.
