U16 boys soccer sweep weekend games

The Revelstoke Arrow Helicopters U16 boys soccer team came away with two wins this week against the Kamloops Orange team. On Wednesday, the team travelled to Salmon Arm to play and after losing two players to injury, still came away with a 1-0 win on a goal by Gabriel Laidlaw.

Saturday’s home game brought more injuries to coach Rob Evans’ team and kept team physiotherapist, Prue Hicks from Red Cedar Physiotherapy very busy! Although there were many chances by Timo Holtappels, Chase Bafaro and Isaac Callaghan, the game remained scoreless until Rhys Evans placed a hard shot into the top of the net in the second half. Kamloops had a chance to tie it on a late free kick but Revelstoke held on for the win and its second straight shutout with great defensive play by Callum Hicks, Adam Smith, Nick Saar, and Austin Carter as well as keeper Gordon Mason.

Revelstoke’s next games are Saturday, May 25, at 1 p.m. at Queen Elizabeth field and Sunday, May 26, at 1 p.m. at the Grandstand field.

Huge win for U-14 Girls

After two tough losses the previous weekend, the Revelstoke U14 girls soccer team rebounded with a huge win. Revelstoke’s Myah Kramer scored early in the game and in an end-to-end nailbitter to the last seconds, the Revelstoke girls hung on to the 1-0 win over a tough Kamloops team.

U12 boys undefeated

The U12 Development team had a successful day on the pitch in Salmon Arm on Sunday. They  defeated the host Shuswap team 2-1 in a well played game with many chances. Defender Hayden Mallet saved the win with a late second half header off the line. It was the team’s first jamboree with a full roster, which they used to their advantage in the second game to force a 1-1 draw with a large Vernon side. Robbie Pattinson set up Harrison Fenwick to even the score with only a minute left. The boys ended their day by walking out on the pitch together and calling “Happy Mother’s Day” to all their mothers in the stands. Well done boys.

U11 boys lose narrowly

The Revelstoke U11 boys soccer team competed in a jamboree in Kamloops on May 12. The jamborees are organized by the Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer Association (TOYSA) and feature three teams each from Kelowna and Kamloops, two from Vernon and one each from Penticton, Shuswap and Revelstoke. The league is designed to introduce youth to competitive soccer and sportsmanship. Coach Alan Chell commends TOYSA for doing an excellent job of organizing and thanks Alex Farrugia for all her efforts with TOYSA on behalf of local soccer.

On May 12 Revelstoke lost two lose games by identical 2-0 scores. The first game was against Penticton and the second against Vernon. Revelstoke competed well in both games. Chell was particularly pleased with the play of goalkeeper David Kline and commented that David takes command of the penalty area, has great reflexes and is fearless in net. Conner Templeton also played well and quite often it is a good pass from Conner that starts the transition from defence to attack.

The team plays next in the Shuswap on May 26.
