To say female soccer in the Kootenays would be the understatement of the year.

Three teams from the Kootenay Whitecaps program cooked with the big dogs during a showcase tournament over the weekend in Seattle, Wash.

"The soccer and the style that these players played with was amazing the watch," said Bret Adams, Associate Head Coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps Kootenay program.

"The development that the whitecaps coaching has given the players in the last 3 years is starting to show."

The Kootenay U16 squad finished the weekend tourney with three draws and one loss.

The U17 squad finished the event unbeaten with two wins and two draws.

The U18 Girls won twice, losing once and scoring a draw.

The teams consist of players from Nelson, Cranbrook, Trail, Castlegar, Invermere, Grand forks, Fernie and Kimberley.
