A handful of Nelson Youth Soccer teams have taken to the road to represent the Heritage City Association at the BC Soccer Provincial B Cup in Surrey and Vernon.

Four boy’s squads open play Thursday at the Les Sinnott Memorial Tournament in the Central Okanagan while three girl’s teams traveled to the Lower Mainland to participate in the BC Soccer Provincial B Cup.

All teams open play Thursday in round robin action.

Each team continues play Friday and Saturday before the playoff round Sunday.

The Nelson Selects U18 Girls have the best shot at a medal after finishing second last year.

The squad is bolstered by many graduates from the U16 Selects that captured the gold medal in 2016.

Nelson opens action Thursday against the Surdel Selects.

Other games in Surrey have the Nelson U16 squad meeting Coquitlam Ford and U13 Select playing Terrace.

In Vernon, Nelson U13s meet Terrace, U14 play host Vernon United, U16 Boy’s face Bays United and U18s take on West Coast Auto.
