This past Mothers Day weekend had the Boys U14 Rep team playing a home and away with Kamloops. After a good practise Friday night, the boys made their way to Kamloops to play their A team in Valleyview on Saturday.

After our parents helped repair the field, the game got underway. Under a hot Kamloops sun the boys fell behind 3-1 in the first half. They played much better in the second, controlling the play and pressing unsuccessfully. The game ended 3-1 Kamloops despite a great effort.

Sunday saw the boys host their first home game of the season against Kamloops B. Under our own hot sun the boys brought their A game and defeated Kamloops 4-2. After the game they cheered not only for their opponents but most loudly for their mothers as they then walked across the field as a team and called ‘Happy Mothers Day!’ to those in attendance.

All in all, a successful weekend with many positives, including a refreshing dunk in the Columbia River to cool off.

The boys are back in action at home in Centennial park both Saturday, May 23, at 1 p.m. and Sunday, May 24, at 11 a.m. against Vernon and Kamloops A respectively.

It was another fun weekend of soccer for the U11 Boys’ Development team. This past Sunday, the boys travelled to Penticton for another two games in the Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League (TOYSL).

The first game was a tough match against Vernon. Our team played extremely well in the first half and they held Vernon to a close game with fine passing and aggressive play. Unfortunately, Vernon proved the stronger team and they pulled away early in the second half and would go on to win the game 5-2.  Revelstoke goals came in from Alexander Gribbon and Thomas Macdonald.

In the afternoon, the boys faced up against Kelowna. The Revelstoke team had a great first half in this game with two more goals coming from Gribbon and Macdonald. Up one goal at the half and sensing the excitement of a possible win, the boys had to calm their nerves and play a solid second half. With mounting pressure from Kelowna, Elliot Wilson was able to score a third goal to secure a 3-2 win for Revelstoke.

After their victory, the boys’ shook hands with the opposing team, they thanked the referee, and then they ran across the field to give a special Mothers’ Day cheer to thank the mothers and grandmothers from Revelstoke for their unwavering support on the sidelines and beyond.
