Carducci, Yekka earn Canadian under-17 soccer player of the year honours
Marco Carducci and Sura Yekka have earned the Canadian under-17 soccer player of the year awards for 2013.
Carducci, a goalie with the Vancouver Whitecaps residency program, helped Canada to a bronze medal at the CONCACAF men's under-17 championships, and a berth in the FIFA U-17 World Cup. The Calgarian was Canada's player of the match in a 2-2 draw with Austria in the tournament's group opener.
Yekka made her national senior team debut in Canada's game versus South Korea on Oct. 31 in Edmonton. A month later, the defender from Mississauga, Ont., earned Canada's player of the match honours in a 0-0 draw with Mexico in Vancouver, B.C.
Yekka, who plays club soccer for Brams United SC, was also named to the Canada Games all-star team in August.
The awards are determined by a vote of national team coaches (50 per cent) and Canadian clubs and coaches (50 per cent).
