Kootenay Storm return from B.C.s

Medals eluded the Kootenay South Storm soccer teams at the Les Sinnot Memorial Cup and the B.C. Girls B soccer championships last weekend.

Medals eluded the Kootenay South Storm soccer teams at the Les Sinnot Memorial Cup and the B.C. Girls B soccer championships last weekend despite some close games and shootout losses.

Last year’s bronze-medal winning U16 team lost its bid for a medal finishing the round robin with two ties and one loss.

The team dropped its opening match to defending champion Royal City Westminster, 5-1, having a difficult time with the artificial turf. They then tied the Prince George Timberwolves 1-1, who would go onto take second spot, losing  2-1 in the final to eventual winner Kelowna United. The Storm tied Cowichan Valley by the same 1-1 score to round out the round robin before dropping a 2-1 game on penalty kicks to Terrace Sunday in the 5-6 match.

The U13 boys would claim sixth spot overall after a tough 2-1 loss to Prince George Timberwolves. The U13’s beat Terrace in their first match but would fall to Surrey FC  6-1 and Saanich 5-0 to settle for the 5-6 place game.

The U14 Kootenay South team would win their playoff match beating SeaAir 2, 3-0, for a seventh place finish.

In the U15 girls B.C. Soccer B Cup championship Kootenay South lost a close 7-8 place match to Prince George 2-1, while the U18 Kootenay South Saints fell 5-0 to the Chilliwack Attack in their final match.
