Girls struggle to score, boys play to draws at B.C. Soccer Provincial B Cup tournaments in Kelowna and Aldergrove
It was a tale of two different results for Nelson Youth Soccer teams Thursday at the B.C. Soccer Provincial B Cup Tournaments.
In Kelowna, all three girl’s teams — U13, U14 and U15 — had difficulty scoring during one-goal losses on Day one of the tournment.
Both U13 and U14 squads lost 1-0 during very tightly-played first round games.
The U13 Selects dropped a single-goal setback to Chilliwack. The Select play Williams Lake Friday at 3 p.m. needing a win to keep pace for the medal round.
Meanwhile the U14 team also lost 1-0 to Sur-Del United of the Fraser Valley.
The Reps face Northern rep Quesnel Friday, also at 3 p.m.
The final team from Nelson in Kelowna, the U15 Selects were bounced 3-0 by CMFSC from the Lower Mainland.
Next up for the Selects is Cariboo/North at 1 p.m.
Closer to the west coast, in Aldergrove, the boys scored goals but all managed to finish the day with draws.
The U15 boys scored a 2-2 tie against South Metro Burnaby Vipers.
The Selects meet Wiliams Lake Storm Friday at 3 p.m.
The U16 team tied 1-1 against Comox Valley while the U18 squad finished in a 2-2 draw against North Delta.
The U16s face Quesnel Friday at 11 a.m. while the 18-Reps play Prince George at 3 p.m.
The top teams in each of the four-team pools — girl’s and boy’s — meet Sunday for the gold medal.
The second-place team in each division play for the bronze.
The remaining four teams drop to the consolation round.
