KSYSA U17 Selects advance to provincials

Kootenay South’s U17 Girls defeat the East Kootenay rep to advance to B Cup provincials.

The Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association’s (KSYSA) U17 Storm Girls team is off to Provincials.

The U17 girls squad defeated Kootenay East last week at the Castlegar Complex to earn a berth at the BC Soccer B Cup Provincials in Surrey, July 6-9. The Select team is made up of girls born 2000 and 2001 from Rossland, Trail, Warfield, Montrose, Castlegar, Christina Lake and Grand Forks.

“This is the first year we have combined these two age groups and they are working great together,” says coach Kelly Acheson. “We have tons of talent and have worked hard this season to implement a new system of play and really develop our strategic play-making and decision making abilities. I am super proud of these girls.”

Storm’s captain Ali D’Odorico led the way with four goals in a lopsided 11-1 drubbing. The KSYSA team will join seven other teams from across B.C. including a host club plus one qualifier from each of the seven zones around the province.

KSYSA is the largest youth recreation organization with just over 1,000 members from Rossland, Trail, Castlegar, Fruitvale and all areas in between. The KSYSA U13 girls will also be making a run at a provincial spot with their playdown match tonight.
