Revelstoke FC opens season with scoreless draw

Revelstoke FC men’s soccer team opened the 2012 season with a 0-0 draw against Camels FC in the North Okanagan Soccer League action.

Revelstoke FC men’s soccer team opened the 2012 season with a 0-0 draw against Camels FC in the North Okanagan Soccer League action on Wednesday in Vernon.

Team captain Sergio Spataro said he felt it was three points the team should have had. “That’s what happens when you have only been of the field for three practices,” he said. “Vernon has been outside since March.”

He said the team struggled to get settled, relying on the long ball, which is not part of the team’s game. “It never has been and it never will be. We need to stay clam and understand that goals will come, no matter how difficult the team you are playing against, it isn’t always necessary to score early.”

Revelstoke FC returns to action with a game against North Enderby Timber in Vernon on Wednesday, Apr. 25. It makes its home debut with a game against Turnkey at Queen Elizabeth Park on May 2 at 6:30 p.m.

The team is facing the loss of Mitch Froehlich and Justin Kandola, two of the team’s top players, but has several new players to replace them.

“We are confident these new players will fill their voids,” said Spataro. “Although it is early in the season, I would say this team is the fittest I’ve seen in my 16 years of playing for RFC.”

Anyone interested in joining the team can contact Spataro at 250-837-0010.
