U12 girls win indoor soccer tournament

The chilly SASCU Indoor arena hosted 16 teams in four divisions this past weekend

The chilly SASCU Indoor arena hosted 16 teams in four divisions this past weekend in the fifth-annual Shuswap FC Girls and Boys U12 and U13 pre-holiday season tournament.

The Shuswap FC U12 Boys played some great soccer, but brief lapses proved costly in a 3-1 loss and a pair of 3-2 losses to strong teams from Penticton, Kelowna and tournament division-champion Kamloops.

The Shuswap boys fought back from a 2-0 deficit to tie it up before giving up a late winner to Kamloops.

The U13 Boys started the tournament with a 4-1 loss against the Kamloops Whitecaps Academy team. Their second game of the day saw them face the eventual champions, Penticton. The boys wound up on the short end of a 2-1 decision.

The U13 boys saved their best game of the day for last, winning 1-0 over a strong Vernon United team.

The Shuswap FC U13 girls won 3-2 against Penticton in their first game of the weekend.

In the girls’ second game, against Kelowna, they fell behind again and couldn’t break down the Kelowna defence, resulting in a 1-0 loss.

In the girls’ final game of the day they faced Vernon United.  The game ended in a 2-2 tie after a late equalizer from  Zoe St. Amand.

The Shuswap U12 girls opened up Sunday play with a dominant performance against Vernon, winning 4-0. The girls continued their strong play in a 4-1 victory over Penticton in their second game.

In the final game in the U12 division, the Shuswap FC girls faced Kamloops, resulting in a 3-1 gold medal win.
