Scandinavian Soccer Tournament 2002

The finals in the Scandinavian soccer tournament were played on 7 September in Ovide Park in Pointe Claire in beautiful (and warm) weather. The Finnish team had made it to the final against Denmark, having won over Sweden 3-0 and Norway 5-1 and having played 2-2 against Denmark. Both Finland and Denmark played very well and evenly in the final game. Frederick managed a nice header into the goal for Finland and we won 1-0 over Denmark, last year's champion. We had a nice picnik after the game, with thanks to our sponsors Chris de Saint-Rome and Dagwood's sandwich group.

Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden have played for the Molson Scandinavian Cup for well over twenty years now. The players must have an affiliation or roots to one of the Nordic countries, usually parents or through marriage.

The players on the Finnish team were: Nick Argyropoulus, Mariano Ramos, Matti Ollila, Claus Frostell, Jean Laroche, Teuvo Saario, Eero Piilokivi, Daniel Boroff, Javier, Marc McKee, Kevin McKee, Tatu Lukka, Markus Raikkonen, Anssi Ronkainen, Jukka Haapasalo, Ilari Haapasalo, Joe Buduano, Jaakko Koponen, Jouko Koponen, Julian Segovia, Petri Tuomela, Matthew Dobchies, Frank Dobchies and Marcel Angelosanto.
