Five of our Division 1 and Division 2 boys teams travelled to Kamloops to compete in the Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial B Cup tournament against the top teams from all over British Columbia which included Kamloops, Nelson, Kelowna, and South Delta.
The CMFSC Sevilla and Villa captured the gold and silver medals in the Under 13 division, in a thrilling final game that came down to penalty shots. These two teams both had incredible seasons in the BC Coastal Soccer League Under 13 Boys Division 2. CMFSC Villa, went undefeated with a 9-0-1 record in the regular season, won Coastal Cup, and won the silver medal in Provincials. The only loss this team had was in the final game which was determined by shootout. CMFSC Sevilla had a great season with a 10-1-1 record, came in forth in Coastal Cup, and captured the gold medal at Provincials with an amazing final penalty shot save by goalkeeper Brayden Cosman. Beyond excellence in ability, both of these teams and their supporting families, have displayed sportsmanship and respect on and off the field from simple acts as regarding each other with friendly hello’s in the hotel hallways, showing kindness to strangers at the field to erupting in cheers equally for both teams during the awards ceremony.
Liam Carter, Head Coach of Boys, attended the weekend and had this to say, "It was incredible to see both of our teams reach this stage of a provincial tournament. Not only were the players first class in their conduct throughout the weekend, the families of each team were so incredibly supportive of BOTH sets of players. The final was a nail biter and it was fantastic that both teams were again celebrated by ALL parents following the match. What a great way to end this phenomenal season.”
