After having last weekend off, the Arrow Helicopters U16 boys soccer team played two home games on May 25 and 26.

Saturday’s game was a hard fought battle with Kelowna and ended in a 1-0 loss. Revelstoke had some incredible scoring chances by Timo Holtappels, Jacob Laidlaw and Rhys Evans. Kelowna worked hard to increase their lead but the score remained 1-0 from early in the game due to some great defensive play from Donovan Miskiman and Daniel Blackie.

Sunday saw Penticton come to town and completely dominate the first half of the game. The score was 2-0 in favour of the visiting team at half time and could have been more lopsided if not for some great goaltending by Gordon Mason. Coach Rob Evans made some changes at half time and put Gordon up front with Rhys, Chase Bafaro and Timo, with Charlie Sykes, Tashi Townley, Wyatt Callaghan and Jack Callaghan supporting in the middle, and Donovan as the keeper.

The boys came out firing and Gordon scored two goals in the second half to tie the game. Although the team was missing some key defenders, Joe Harper, Jacob Friesen and Adam Smith did a great job helping Donovan keep the half scoreless.

The team’s next home game is Saturday, June 1, at 3 p.m. at Queen Elizabeth Park  field at 3:00.

U12 boys split games

The U12 development team played well and earned a split last weekend in Vernon. Coach Eric Scarcella praised the boys play and appreciated the assistance of RSS student and rep player Lachlan Hicks.

Their first game was a strong 2-1 win over Penticton that saw great defensive play from Spencer Spanier and Jeremy Scarcella. Raymond Speerbrecker and Rylan Bokis secured the victory, scoring identical goals by being in the right place at the right time.

The second game was a 2-1 loss against Kamloops. Justin Angelozzi scored with a well placed shot from just inside the box to put the boys up, however two unanswered headers reversed the first games result.

The boys are in action in Kamloops on Sunday, June 2, and then host a jamboree in Revelstoke on June 9.

U11 boys suffer big loss

The U11 boys soccer team lost 4-0 to Kamloops on Sunday, May 26. Coach Alan Chell was very pleased with the team performance noting that the game was played at a fast pace with a lot of intensity.

Caleb McIntyre had a strong game and won many head balls as well as making several good runs down the flank. Matthew Scarcella was unfortunate not to score as he twice came within centimetres of scoring.

Next weekend, the U11 and 12 boys are combining teams on Saturday and they and a U13 girls team will be travellling to Nakusp for two exhibition games.

Revelstoke hosts the U11 jamboree on Sunday, June 2, and spectators are invited to watch some good soccer games, with four fields at Centennial Park and one at Queen Elizabeth, for games at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
