The U14 girls battled hard all week long

U17 boys bring home the hardware

Kootenay South’s U17 boys soccer team came away with a bronze medal at provincials.

The boys used an impressive 3-1 win over Vernon to pick up the hardware at the BC Soccer B Cup Provincial Championships held in Penticton last week.

The U17 boys teams came out of the round robin with a record of one win, one tie and one loss.

The team opened the tournament with a 3-nil win over Cowichan.

In their second game  the boys lost to the eventual silver medalists from North Vancouver. The score in that game was 4-nil.

The team responded with a 4-4 draw against Terrace, giving them second place in their pool and into the bronze medal game last Sunday.

There were also three other teams from Kootenay South participating in the B Cup provincials this year.

Also in Penticton, the U16 boys were up against some tough competition.

The boys battled rival Kootenay East to a 1-1 draw in the opening game, but then fell 6-1 to Kelowna, 5-nil to Prince George and 5-1 to Peninsula in the final game for fifth and sixth place overall.

The Kootenay South U14 girls had a 1-nil lead against rival Nelson Selects the championships being held in Nelson.

A win in that game and the girls would have qualified for the bronze medal game.

Unfortunately, the host side scored four goals in the second half to register the 4-2 victory and take second place in the pool.

The girls opened the tournament with a 3-1 win over Surrey, followed by a 4-1 loss to Kelowna.

The final team involved in the championships in Nelson were the U13 Kootenay South girls.

 

Despite losing all of its games, the girls didn’t go away empty handed as they won the BC Soccer Fair Play award for their age group.
