This past weekend the Revelstoke U 14 Boys team had a busy weekend at home hosting two games.
The team is in the second half of their season and is now playing teams they have already seen once out of town. Saturday was hot and sunny as the boys hosted Vernon down on Centennial Field.
With a number of players away on a band trip the remaining group buckled down and came back from being down twice to triumph with a 3-2 win. The entire group was needed as the weather was a factor with Vernon having a much larger bench. After the game the boys cooled off in the Columbia with a number of Vernon players and coaches who joined us at the boat launch.
Sunday was overcast and windy as the boys hosted Kamloops up at Queen Elizabeth. All the other fields were busy as the Boys U11 Development team hosted their annual Jamboree. Once again the Boys played hard and emerged triumphant with a 4-2 win in convincing style.
After the game a number of players went on to referee for the younger teams who took over Revelstoke for the day. All in all it was a soccer filled weekend in which the boys did their home town proud. Next weekend sees another double header as the boys host Salmon Arm on Saturday and Kelowna on Sunday.
