Nelson’s Titouan Chopin helped BC to a bronze medal at the U16 national boys soccer final in Mount Pearl, Nfld. last month.

BC beat Alberta 1-0 in the third-place match on a penalty goal.

Chopin scored twice in BC’s 3-1 win over Sask-toba, which pushed them into second place in Group B. BC was actually down 1-0 before a penalty strike put the teams even and Chopin notched his pair.

Quebec beat Ontario 1-0 in the final. Ontario and Alberta actually tied in the standings, but the former had the better goal differential.

Chopin will be joining a Vancouver Whitecaps residency program in September, described as a “full-time, fully funded, player development program unlike any other in North America … designed to maximize a player’s potential.”
