LVR boys take Summerland soccer tournament

Nelson Bombers beats Penticton, Kamloops and Keremeos.

The L.V. Rogers boys soccer team is off to a strong start after winning a tournament in Summerland last weekend.

The tournament included six teams from the Okanagan.

They won their first game 3-0 against Princess Margaret of Penticton and their second game 3-1 against North Kamloops.

These wins took the Bombers through to the final where they faced a good team from Keremeos.

Bombers coach Simon Liddellof said the boys were very tired, this being the third game in one day.

“It was a back-and-forth game,” said Liddellof. “But eventually Nigel Ziegler broke the tie with a beautiful goal from just outside the 18-yard box, knicking the bottom side of the crossbar as it went in.”

This gave the Bombers a 1-0 lead, good enough to win the game and the tournament.

Liddellof said the team was lead by their Grade 12s with Ziegler, Jonah Thiele, Darian Johnson each scoring twice. Spencer Atkins scored as well. The team is made up of the best players from Nelson Youth Soccer’s U15, U16, and U17 divisions.

The team also has three players from the international program: Arnau Espinault and David Grey from Spain, and Atsuki Hoshi from Japan.

The Bombers travel to Cranbrook this weekend for a tournament.
