The U11 and U12 boys soccer teams had a very busy weekend June 1 and 2.

On June 1, the teams combined to travel to Nakusp for two games. The games were played full field, 11 aside and the boys very much enjoyed the experience. They won the first game 2-0 with goals coming from Tyler Jamieson and John Echlin. They won the second game 4-0 with goals being scored by Jamieson, Grady Powell, Raymond Speerbrecker and David Kline.

Coach Alan Chell said the team played great positional soccer with strong passing and was particularly impressed with the play of Powell and Spencer Spannier.

On Sunday, June 2, the U12 boys travelled to Kamloops. Two games were played and twice the sky opened up on them raining hard.

The first game saw a close 2-1 loss to Vernon despite a hard push near the end and and some missed opportunities.

The boys dried off and came back under a sunny sky to face Kelowna. Once again they were down by one in the last minute after goals from Ben MacDonald and Justin Angelozzi. A late push resulted in a last minute goal for Kelowna, who won 4-2 just as the rain came down again. The boys continue to improve and are competing in every game they play. Come out this Sunday, June 9, to support them in their only home jamboree this season.

On Sunday, the U11 boys lost to Kelowna and Penticton by identical 6-1 scores. In both games, the team started well but the stronger teams wore them down as the games progressed. Caleb Guenther scored in the first game and Grady Powell in the second. Chell praised the work effort of Powell, Jamieson and Simon Blackie.

Next weekend, the boys are off to Kamloops for another jamboree.

The Arrow Helicopters U16 boys soccer team played two games last weekend. Saturday they hosted a team from Salmon Arm and led 1-0 after the first half thanks to a goal by Rhys Evans that was set up perfectly by Charlie Sykes. The team could not hold the lead in the second half and ended up with a 2-1 loss.

Sunday, the team travelled to Kelowna to play one of the top teams in the league. Despite holding this team to a tie the last time they met, Kelowna was too much for Revelstoke on this day and won 8-0 as they were in top form gearing up for playoffs.

Revelstoke has two games remaining in their season next weekend, with the final home game on Sunday, June 9, at 3 p.m. at Queen Elizabeth Park.

Apologies to Gabriel Laidlaw for the error made in the last article that named his brother Jacob instead. Excellent play that weekend Gabriel!
