It was a beautiful day for a soccer game Saturday in Fort St. John.
Both Duncan Cran and Charlie Lake elementary schools won first place in the school district’s fall soccer tournament.
The Duncan Cran Kodiaks beat the Ma Murray Firebirds 5-0 in the B division, an impressive feat for the shorthanded team, according to parent Neil Evans.
“This time came in the underdog with nearly 10 players less than any other team they faced,” says Evans.
“Four of them are a close group of friends that play soccer in the back yard all year long," he adds. "Really cool to see this school succeed in any sport as apparently it has been many years if not decades!”
Twelve teams competed in the day long tournament held at Alwin Holland elementary school, set up with support and equipment donations from the Soccer Club.
In the Lakers vs. Lakers A division finals, Charlie Lake team 2 took first place, winning an intense shootout against Charlie Lake team 1 after going 0-0 in regular play.
