Revelstoke senior boys soccer team knocked out at Valleys

Revelstoke Secondary School senior boys soccer team swept out of the Okanagan Valley championships after taking long road to get there.

The Revelstoke Secondary School senior boys soccer team was swept out of the Okanagan Valley championships after taking the long road to get there.

The boys had a hectic week last week, first taking on Kalamalka Secondary on Monday, Oct 28, for the North Zone title and an automatic berth in the Valleys. RSS came up short, falling 3-1, and forcing them into a wildcard match against Westsyde in Kamloops on Wednesday.

There they pulled off a 4-3 win for a spot in the Valleys, which started on Friday in Kelowna.

At the Valleys, the boys received a tough draw. They opened against powerhouse Okanagan Mission school – the defending provincial champions who haven’t lost a game in two years. RSS was thrashed, falling 6-0.

They then had 30 minutes to rest before playing Valleyview Secondary. The tired squad lost 4-1 and found themselves eliminated from the tournament and a chance for a trip to the provincial championships.

Coach Rob Evans attributed the loss to fatigue, noting the fact the team play four games in five days, with lots of travel and a tough schedule.
