Revelstoke’s U14 boys rep soccer team had a busy week with two games in two different towns.
After a strong practice on Tuesday we travelled to Salmon Arm Wednesday for our first ever mid week game. The boys played well, had contributions all around, and rose to a 6-0 defeat of our neighbours to the west. All six goals were netted by different players and the shut out speaks well of the defence and keeper.
On Sunday we turned our eyes south and made the trip to Kelowna to play the top Kelowna United U-14 team. For most of our boys it was their first game on outside artificial turf. Once again the boys rose to the challenge and earned a 2-2 draw, with both of Kelowna’s goals coming from the penalty spot. It was a challenging game that left the boys looking forward to playing them again.
All in all, it was a great week of soccer. It is our best start to date, going undefeated in our first four games. They are a fun group to watch and home games are coming soon.
