In their four team pool, the Voodoos finished with the third best record.

Rutland then fell to Handsworth Secondary 2-1 in their second game of the weekend. Handsworth, a usual top team in the province, finished 3rd at the championships.

Sardis Secondary from Chilliwack handed the Voodoos a 2-0 loss in Rutland’s third game of the championships.

The sole Okanagan team at the B.C.’s grabbed their first and only win of the tournament against North Peace with a 3-1 victory.

In the final day of the tournament, the Voodoos fell 2-0 to Guildford Park to finalize their 14th place ranking.

Despite the near-to-the-bottom result, the 14th place finish at the B.C. championships makes a good addition to the Rutland Secondary trophy case.
