Unexpected warm sunny weather greeted the U12 Girls Select soccer teams (Comox Valley United Soccer Club) to North Vancouver on the Thanksgiving Weekend.
The U12 Girls Select soccer program has produced two very high-calibre soccer teams. Both were undefeated in Vancouver Island league play to begin their season and were eager to test themselves against Lower Mainland competition at the annual North Shore Girls Thanksgiving Tournament.
Team coaches Jeff Howe, Andrew Duncan and Colin Power were very pleased with the girls’ performances over the weekend. Each team played four games over the three-day tournament and finished with an impressive overall record of four convincing wins, two draws and two tight hard-fought defeats.
Both teams played with passion and rose to the challenge against some physical and talented Lower Mainland teams. Coach Duncan elaborated: “We came over to the mainland to allow our girls to experience some higher pressure competition and game situations. Both teams were faced with adversity and are now better soccer players for the experience.
“We look forward to continue developing these great young athletes and are excited about the potential of this group moving forward.”
