CR Kids too much for Top Notch

The Spring League open men’s soccer had its final game Tuesday in Campbell River. The four-team league consisted of three teams from Comox and one from Campbell River. It ran for two months.

The final had a local team, Top Notch, playing against the CR Kids. The latter won 3-1.

Of note, the Top Notch team had an average age of 41 while the CR Kids had an average age of 23. Top Notch did extremely well considering the age gap – something the team should be proud of.

In other soccer news:

•The CVUSC Select Girls Tryouts concluded last weekend at the Vanier Turf. Girls from U12-U18 gave it their all. There was a combined total of 94 girls from all ages that continue to enjoy the beautiful game.

•The Upper Island Riptide Academy had its final session last week at Isfeld Secondary. The kids were part of a three-month program that promoted the best in soccer. They will now have plenty of time to enjoy their other summer passions before their season starts in August.
