The Nelson Selects U11 boys team took part in the Three Blind Refs Soccer tournament in Kalispell, Montana coming away with a solid 2-2 record and finishing just outside of the medals.

“Overall, the team played very well against some strong American teams,” said U11 coach Mark Harold. “The boys stepped up and competed in each of their games. It was a solid team effort with all players contributing throughout the weekend.”

The team’s best efforts were saved for the last day of the tournament. A morning victory propelled the team into a hard fought bronze medal match against a very good Sandpoint Strikers’ team.

“The focus at this age is still on development,” said the program’s mentor coach Jamie Spendlove.

“We liked how the boys competed and they should be proud of their accomplishments since the April start of the development program.”

Next up for the U11 boys is the Revelstoke Jamboree this coming weekend.
