David Thompson Secondary School's goaltender makes a save off this J.L. Crowe attempt on Friday at the Trail high school field. The Invermere team went on to shut out Crowe 2-0 in the provincial qualifier

Invermere’s David Thompson Secondary beats J.L. Crowe boys soccer team, off to provincial soccer championship

David Thompson Secondary School scored twice late in the second half to qualify for the B.C. AA provincial soccer championship next week.

Trail’s J. L. Crowe Hawks’ boys soccer team put up a terrific fight, but the team couldn’t quite pull off the upset over number 1 seeded David Thompson Secondary from Invermere, losing 2-0 in the deciding final match on Friday on the Crowe field.

In cold, wet, and blustery conditions, Number 3 seed Crowe defeated L.V. Rogers of Nelson 1-0 earlier in the day to advance to the qualifying final. The Hawks played even with last year’s Kootenay champion through the first half, but Invermere finally beat the Hawks goalie late in the second half with a great strike from outside the box for the winning goal and a return to the championship.

Selkirk Secondary from Kimberley also participated, and lost to Invermere in the opening match at Haley Field.
