All eyes look toward the goal after Castlegar's Ryan Trickey (12)

Castlegar U13 boys prevail over Rossland in soggy soccer action

It was a nail-biting game but in the end, a rare goal made the difference.

As fog starting to roll across the rain-soaked fields at the Castlegar Complex, Ryan Trickey (12) took advantage of a rare opportunity to grab a 1-0 victory over Rossland on Monday, June 24 in a hard-fought soccer match.

All eyes went toward the goal after Trickey stretched out to head a ball past the Rossland goaltender late in the second half.

Headers for goals aren’t seen too often at the U13 level but Trickey made no mistake on a nice cross from teammate Owen Reilly (11).

The next playoff game is an all Castlegar affair as two local teams battle at the same field on Tuesday, June 25 at 6:40 p.m.
