Shuswap Salsa danced their way to lifting the inaugural SilverBoot 7 on 7 Tournament title last Sunday at SASCU Little Mountain Sports Field.

The tournament hosted four competitive adult teams from around the Shuswap.

Things didn’t look good in Shuswap’s opening game of the tournament.

They faced, Abbott’s and Friends FC, who easily doubled up Salsa with a 10-5 win.

After the rocky start to the tournament, Salsa regained their composure and under the lights, dominated their next two opponents, as they looked to carry their momentum into the final.

“The boys really rallied together, and we rode the momentum into the all-Salmon Arm final,” said Chad Forman, Shuswap Salsa striker.

Shuswap fell behind early in the final against fellow Salmon Arm team Abbott’s and Friends FC. Not long after Abbott’s and Friends FC took the lead, Salsa worked the ball around the field and knotted the game, at one a piece, thanks to clever team play that started in their half.

Both teams traded goals once again, before Shuswap opened the flood gates. The score at half saw Shuswap Salsa hold a 5-2 lead.

“In tournament games like this the winner is usually the team that is hottest at the time.”

In the heat of the afternoon the Shuswap Salsa remained cool and won the game, hoisting the inaugural SilverBoot championship.
