The Cariboo United once again

This past weekend two Cariboo soccer teams travelled to Surrey for the Surrey Mayor’s Cup.

This past weekend two Cariboo soccer teams travelled to Surrey for the Surrey Mayor’s Cup.

The two Cariboo United girls teams are regional, with players from 100 Mile House through to Prince George.

These motivated girls have been training in Quesnel since last fall and this was their first opportunity to test their skills in a competition.

The teams played in heavy rain, but provided thrilling entertainment for the spectators.

The younger group (U14) won three of their four games to claim first in their division.

They won their first games 1-0, then lost 0-3 and finished the tournament with a 5-0 victory.

The older group, mostly U16 players, competed with older teams in the U18 division.

After losing their first match 0-2, they posted convincing victories in their next two matches, winning 4-0 and 3-0.  (They won their last match in forfeit.)  This record placed them third in a group of eight.

The teams would like to thank their sponsors Cariboo Ford, Fox Dairy Farms, Big Country Printers, BMO and Quesnel River Pulp as well as head coach Kam Dosanjh.
