Jason Johnson drives a shot on net for Revelstoke FC in their 5–1 win over the Mission Cleaners on Saturday afternoon.

Nelson, Williams Lake take Big Bear

Nelson's Laski United win men's event and Williams Lake the women's event at the 22nd annual Big Bear soccer tournament last weekend.

Laski United out of Nelson won the men’s event and Williams Lake the women’s event at the 22nd annual Big Bear soccer tournament last weekend.

Laski took advantage of an undermanned Canmore Unicorns team to run away with the final on Sunday afternoon. The Unicorns had a player sent off early in the game and Laski used the advantage to run up a convincing 5–1 victory.

The women’s final was also a blow out, with Williams Lake defeating the Vernon Party Train 5–0.

Revelstoke FC lost in the semi-final to Laski, falling 3–0. The local team’s roster was boosted by players from Williams Lake, and they jokingly called their team Williamson’s Lake.

Ten men’s teams and six women’s teams took part in the tournament.

The tournament kicked off Friday evening, with Duffy’s from Kamloops facing off against the Calgary Imperials.

Revelstoke FC started their tournament Saturday morning, falling 2–0 to Laski. They redeemed themselves later in the day, handily beating the Mission Cleaners 5–1.

That put them into a tie-breaker Sunday morning against Nelson United, which Revelstoke won 2–0.

The women’s semi-finals started at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. Party Train defeated Nelson and Williams Lake beat Duffy’s to set up the women’s final.

On the men’s side, Laski once again got the best of the local team, beating a tired Revelstoke side 3–0. In the other semi-final, the Unicorns downed Vernon to reach the finals.
