Soccer report: U16 soccer team ends season with tie against Vernon

Revelstoke U16 boys end season with loss and tie; U12 boys go 1-1 in home jamboree.

Contributed by Revelstoke Youth Soccer Association

The Revelstoke Arrow Helicopters U16 boys soccer team finished their season with two games last weekend. Saturday they travelled to Kamloops and lost 3-1. Kamloops got off to a quick 2-0 lead but Revelstoke battled back making it a close game on a goal by Rhys Evans and some better defensive play.

Sunday saw Vernon come to Revelstoke and resulted in the same score as the last time these two teams played. Revelstoke’s ball movement was much better this game and after many chances took the lead on a goal by Charlie Sykes. Vernon eventually went up 2-1 but Revelstoke never quit and eventually tied the game on a goal by Chase Bafaro.

The team made up of Gordon Mason, Isaac Callaghan, Nick Saar, Jacob Friesen, Joseph Harper, Chase Bafaro, Tashi Townley, Rhys Evans, Donovan Miskiman, Timo Holtappels, Wyatt Callaghan, Jack Callaghan, Austin Carter, Gabriel Laidlaw, Adam Smith, Charlie Sykes, Daniel Blackie, Callum Hicks, and Eric Poarch want to give coach Rob Evans a huge thank you for a great season and farewell to Timo who visited us from Germany and was a huge asset to the team. The team will wind up the year Saturday watching the Vancouver Whitecaps game and then have the summer off before getting ready for the Little Bear tournament in September.

U12 boys go 1–1 in home jamboree

The U12 Boys development team hosted its only in-town jamboree on Sunday, June 9. Teams from Penticton, Kelowna, Vernon, Kamloops and Salmon Arm converged on Centennial Park.

Our boys came out strong in their first game and bested a skilled Kamloops team 4-2. Regular goalie John Echlin had to play out due to an injury and did well, scoring twice, with one being a beautiful header off a great cross from William MacDonald. Harrison Fenwick, Ben MacDonald and Spencer Spannier stepped up to fill the net in John’s absence.

The second game against a second Kamloops team swung the other way with luck not being on our side. Cam MacKenzie had some great runs but despite clawing back within one goal twice things did not go the boys way. Despite the 6-2 loss the boys had smiles on their faces for their team picture after the jamboree was over.

The U12 team attends its last jamboree next weekend in Penticton. The team would like to recognize the hard work of the Revelstoke Youth Soccer Association and especially the rep liaison Alex Farrugia, who works tirelessly to give our boys an opportunity most communities our size do not have.
