Nelson's Bombers boys finish tenth

The L.V. Rogers Bombers senior boys soccer team came away with a tenth place finish at the BC High School AA Soccer Championships last week in Burnaby.

The Kootenay champion Bombers started the tournament with a 3-0 loss to eventual champion Okanagan Mission last Monday.

In their second game of the day, the Bombers came out with a better result when they tied Aldergrove 1-1.

Still hoping for a run at the championship, on Tuesday morning the Bombers hopes were dashed when they lost West Vancouver’s Sentinel 5-0. In their only win of the tournament, the Bombers defeated Samuel Robertson of Maple Ridge 1-0 on Tuesday afternoon.

The 1-2-1 round robin record put the Bombers in the ninth/tenth place game against Gulf Islands on Wednesday. The Bombers were defeated 3-1 by Gulf Islands and finished the tournament as the number-ten school out of 16.

In the final, Okanagan Mission defeated Archbishop Carney of Port Coquitlam 2-1 in a shootout.
