After a great weekend of semi-final action, six teams will battle for three Nelson City Soccer League titles on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday at Lakeside pitch the Kootenay Co-Op squad defeated the Innkeepers 2-0 in the first semi-final of the Leo’s Mens Open division. On the adjacent field experience won the day with the Old Dogs FC downing the L.V. Rogers Bombers 4-1. The open division trophy will be contested this coming Saturday starting at 3:45 p.m.

In the Jackson’s Hole Mens Open division Club Inter demolished Real Nelson 5-0. In a much tighter match, the Red Dogs downed Jackson’s Hole 2-1 to earn a spot in Sunday’s final. That contest will be decided at 3:45 p.m.

The highlight games of the weekend came courtesy of the Finley’s Ladies Rec semi-finals.

Defending champion Lily Whites had all they could handle with the upstart Selkirk Eyecare squad. Leading 1-0 heading in the second half, the Lily Whites hung on for the 2-0 win. It could have went either way with Selkirk nailing the crossbar twice while the score was within a goal.

In the other semi-final, the Red Dogs held a 2-1 lead late in the second half and looked to be headed to the final. With time running out, a corner kick resulted in the tying marker by the Dirty Dozen. Ten minutes of overtime solved nothing and the game went into goal kicks where the Dirty Dozen completed the comback and earned the 3-2 victory.

The ladies final slated for 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
