Selects strike gold at Eye of the Storm Tournament
The Nelson Selects concluded the 2017 Rep Soccer season with a gold medal performance at the Eye of the Storm Girl’s Youth Soccer Tournament in Castlegar.
The Selects won the Girl’s U14-15 Division undefeated at 2-0-2 against Vernon United, Columbia Valley, and both KSYSA U14 and KSYSA U15.
Goal scorers included Kaliana Forte, Maddy Hopkins, Lennox Lockhurst and Cayenne Caney. Keeper Faith Stefiuk was outstanding in goal, conceded only one marker throughout the entire tournament.
“It was a true team effort, everyone did their part,” said coach Heath Lockhurst.
“They executed our game plan perfectly. The girls pushed through injuries and kept their composure when the pressure was on.”
The squad now turns its attention to the indoor season to prepare for the 2018 campaign which begins early next year.
