Two teams from the Quesnel Youth Soccer rep program attended the Westcoast Cup Tournament in Pitt Meadows/Mission over Labour Day weekend.

Both the under-12 and under-15 boys Quesnel Strikers teams played, winning all their games.

The U-12 boys played a total of four games. The first game was against the Albion Football Club, and the Strikers won 3-2.

The second game against WCAG Football Club ended with a score of 2-0.

The Strikers took the third game against Sunshine Coast Youth Soccer with a score of 4-0.

The final game was once again against the Albion Football Club, and Quesnel won 4-1. The results put the U-12 boys in first place for the tournament in their division.

The U-15 boys Quesnel Strikers also played four games. This division played in a round-robin style. The first round-robin game was against Squamish United, and the Strikers won 7-0. They went on to beat Surrey United Football Club with a score of 2-1. This placed the team first in their pool, giving them a straight through to the semi-finals.

The team’s third game against Coquitlam Metro Ford ended in victory, with a score of 2-1. It was a hard-fought battle by both teams, with the Quesnel Strikers scoring the winning goal with less than two minutes to play, putting the team into the finals.

The final game was again against Surrey United Football Club. It was another close game, with Surrey ahead one to nothing until the final five minutes of the game.

The Quesnel Strikers pulled out a goal, tying the game and forcing it into penalty kicks, where each team had five opportunities to score on the other team.

Quesnel scored four of its penalty kicks and Surrey just one, bringing the game to a close with a victory for the Strikers.

A Quesnel Youth Soccer spokesperson said: “In all it was a great weekend for both our representing teams. We are proud of the hard work and dedication from players, parents, team managers and coaches.”
