( editor’s note: This event certainly must have been an AMF rules tournament and not FIFA but we published it as many players involved in these games are now involved with FIFA leagues. Also this was not a Canadian wide event but included only teams from Quebec and Ontario. This was not an officialy sanctioned national championship)
