The U12 boys development team travelled to Penticton on Fathers Day for their last jamboree of the season. They were expecting a tough day facing two Kelowna teams.

They came out running and surprised Kelowna Red with a 3-1 victory. Cam Mackenzie notched all three from nice through balls delivered from midfield. Hayden Mallet was a beast on defence shutting down his side as Jeremy Scarcella cleared the middle. Robbie Pattinson and Justin Angelozzi moved back to defence and played strong .The boys played back to back under a hot sun.

The second match versus Kelowna Black game went back and forth. Spencer Spannier opened the scoring as he moved up to striker. Kelowna tied it and then Ben MacDonald and Rory Christie-Hoyle combined for a beautiful free kick to put us back in front. Despite hard work from stalwarts Rylan Bokis and Ray Speerbrecker Kelowna  went up by two. We came close with William MacDonald and Callum Gribbon pressing hard. A brilliant header by John Echlin put us back within one. A last minute goal went the other way and we lost 5-3 but with smiles and laughs as the boys truly developed this year.

The day ended with the boys all getting together and calling Happy Fathers Day to their families in the stands. Head coach Chris MacDonald wishes to thank Eric Scarcella and Lachlan Hicks for all their contributions as well as manager Alex Farrugia.

The Revelstoke U11 boys soccer team finished their season on a high note with a jamboree in Salmon Arm.

The first game saw the boys defeat Kamloops 2-0 on goals by Simon Blackie and Caleb Guenther. The defence played a very strong game and was anchored with the play of centre back Jackson Litke and goalie David Kline picked up a well deserved shutout.

The second game saw Revelstoke defeat the Shuswap 5-1 with two goals each by Grady Powell and Tyler Jamieson and a single tally by Caleb Guenther.

The players will participate in the youth soccer windup on June 22nd with several joining with the U12 team for an exhibition game with Nakusp in the afternoon. The team is also planning to enter the annual Little Bear tournament in September.

Coach Alan Chell credited the boys for their play this season. The whole purpose of the TOYSA development league is to give youth the opportunity to experience games with other communities and develop their skills and enjoyment of soccer. Coach Chell stated that every one of the players has definitely shown increased development of skills and understanding of the game over the course of the season and looks forward to the continued growth of youth soccer in Revelstoke.
