Quesnel Youth Soccer Association takes silver

QYSA has been working with various Youth Soccer Associations to bring high level athletes together for both training and games.

Over the past two years, QYSA has been working with 100 Mile House, Williams Lake and Prince George Youth Soccer Associations to bring high level athletes together for both training and games. This initiative has been named Cariboo United.

This summer, coaches Kam Dosanjh (Quesnel), Brian Hansen (WL), Scott Emmons (PG) and myself have been training a group of dedicated players.

Out of these training sessions two teams were formed, one boys and one girls in the U17 age groupings.

The boys team, containing Quesnel players Noah Barrett and Tanvir Sekhon travelled to Penticton on the Aug. 15 weekend to compete in a tournament.

Coach Brian Hansen stated after coming together very quickly in the first game they played very well, returning to the Cariboo with a 2-2 record.

The Girls team travelled to Chilliwack this past weekend to compete there.  They played a very strong possession game, leading to wins in their first three games of 4-1, 8-1 and 9-1.

During the gold medal match, though they maintained more possession of the ball than their opponents from Bellevue, Washington. They came up short in overtime, losing 0-1.   Quesnel players Haley Schotel, Kyra Teetzen and Kaitlyn Godsoe participated.
