Boundary girls’ soccer headed to provincials

The tournament runs until Saturday, June 1.

Submitted by BCSS soccer player Riley Condon

On Wednesday May 15, the Boundary Central Secondary girls soccer team hosted our Regional Finals to determine which of the division’s teams would qualify for provincials from our area. Our school played Sparwood in our first game, winning 2-1. Following that win, we played Kaslo, winning 4-2.

With these two wins we were in the top of our pool which meant the final game to qualify for provincials would be against the second place team in the opposing pool, Fernie Secondary.

In the first half of the game we were up 3-0 and feeling quite confident that provincials were in our future. In the second half, Fernie manage to score one goal and we answered by scoring two more, for a final score of 5-1. Winning the regionals has qualified us to participate in the single ‘A’ Soccer Provincials in Nakusp.

The team left Midway on Wednesday and will be returning from the tournament on June 1. Anyone who wants to support the BCSS girls’ trip to Nakusp can find out more by calling the school at 250-449-2224.
