The Rossland Secondary School girls’ soccer teams were at their very best this past weekend as they kicked off the annual spring soccer season.

The RSS senior girls claimed the Kootenay Cup Challenge in Creston, defeating Kimberley 5-2, Fernie 5-1, Nakusp 7-0 and Creston 4-0.

The junior girl Royals meanwhile came within a goal of duplicating the feat, but after defeating Creston Blue 3-2 and Creston Yellow 4-2, the team fell to Cranbrook 1-0 in their first tournament of the year.

“Both teams put forth a total team effort in weather that was all over the map,” said coach Rick McKinnon in an email.
