U12, U11 boys return from jamborees

U12 boys lose twice in Kamloops; U11 boys split games in Kelown in weekend action.

Contributed by Revelstoke Youth Soccer Association

The U12 Boys played in their fourth jamboree last weekend in the 32 degrees heat of sunny Kamloops. The boys played hard in the first game but with only one sub it was a tough match with a loss of 4-1 to Kamloops. Hayden Mallett had the goal with a terrific cross from Rory Christie-Hoyle.

The second game saw the temperature rise even further and we welcomed two extra team members to give some water and shade breaks. The team held Kelowna at 0-0 at half time with the consistent stand up job from goalie John Echlin. The final score ended in a loss of 4-1, with some great plays and passing and a goal from William MacDonald, assisted by Spencer Spannier.  Coaches Chris MacDonald and Eric Scarcella commended the boys for two games well played. The next jamboree is in Salmon Arm on Sunday May 12.

The Revelstoke U11 boys soccer team competed in a jamboree in Kelowna on May 5. Their first game was a very exciting, back-and-forth game that ended with a 4-3 Revelstoke victory. Grady Powell led the way with a hat trick while Tyler Jamieson added a single.

In their second game, Revelstoke played a very strong game and were tied with Kelowna at 2-2 until the last two minutes of the game when Kelowna scored two high quality goals for the victory. Grady Powell scored on a penalty shot and Tyler Jamieson added a breakaway goal for Revelstoke.

Coach Alan Chell was very pleased with the team performance. In addition to Grady Powell’s offensive skills, the back line of Dom Donato, Simon Blackie, Aleks Klassen and John Sidjak were keys to the great showing by the team.
