The Archangel Cup Tournament

The Archangel Cup Tournament (now in our 19th year) is an annual tradition between the St. Michaels Soccer Club and Maple Leaf Soccer Club and provides players and teams an opportunity for interleague play and to face opponents they would not face during the regular season.   All teams are entered into the tournament as part of their registration.
