Youth outdoor soccer season wraps up
It was a solid summer for outdoor soccer in Terrace, B.C., with playoffs wrapping up last week.
In the U9/10 girls final, Denny's won 2-1 against Ideal Solutions, with Drew Shannon scoring the winning goal.
And for the U9/10 boys final, Hawkair came out on top 3-2 in penalty kicks in their tough match against Triton Environmental that saw Triton goalie Thomas Dame perform brilliantly despite the loss.
Craig Lindsey and Aidan Kluss had the regulation time goals for Hawkair, with Jacob Heit scoring for Triton during the shootout, and Logan Kluss scoring the game winner for Hawkair.
In the U11/12 girls final, McElhanney won 5-1 against Thornhill Motors – with McElhanney's Misty Wells boasting a four-goal performance.
Kinsmen won 3-1 against Rona in the U11/12 boys final. Rona's lone goal came from Yohannes Vandenburg, with honourable mention going to Andre Van Rensberg who played hard the entire tournament despite a badly injured ankle.
The U13/14 boys final was another squeaker, with Chrysler winning 3-2 in penalty kicks against a spirited Dairy Queen who came back from a 2-0 deficit at the half and fought to the finish.
Dairy Queen's two regulation goals were scored by Malcolm Neifer, with assists by Dylan Mantel and Quinton McChesney. Neil Strydom held his own in net, giving the team a chance at penalty kicks.
Canadian Tire won 3-2 in penalty kicks against Totem Ford for the U13/15 girls final. In regulation, Tegan Dejong and Jenna Hoornenborg had the goals for Canadian Tire, with cousins Brittney and Deanna Peden lighting up the scoreboard for Totem Ford.
And it came down to Hoornenborg in the final shootout, who hit an amazing left footer, winning it for Canadian Tire.
