Northern Strikers win gold, bronze at FC Memorial tourney

U11 and U15 boys teams competed in Edmonton this past weekend

The Fort St. John Soccer Club had two teams in action this past weekend in Edmonton to compete in the FC Memorial tournament, the U11 boys and the U15 boys teams.

The U11 boys continued their strong inaugural season with a 3-0 record in their Tier 3 group. That puts the team at 6-0 in competition, with back-to-back gold medals. This tournament was made possible by a generous donation from Doig River First Nation covering the team entry fee into the tournament.

The U15 boys team were forced to regroup after an opening game loss to Laurier Heights. Two wins, including a 3-2 penalty kick victory against the Camrose Vikings, secured them a third place finish.

The next tournament action for the teams will take place again in Edmonton at the Slush Cup March 3 to 5, where they will be among over 250 soccer teams competing. Joining these boys teams in the tournament will be the U13 co-ed team and U17 girls team.

In league play, the U17 boys and U19 girls will travel to the Scottish Dome in Edmonton this weekend to wrap up their Edmonton Minor Soccer Association league.
