Nelson Rep soccer teams provincials bound

Six Nelson Youth Soccer rep teams are engaged in action this week, hoping to return home with a Provincial B Cup trophy.

The Nelson U15 boys are one of the teams in the hunt for provincial gold.

Six Nelson Youth Soccer rep teams are engaged in action this week, hoping to return home with a Provincial B Cup trophy.

Play began Wednesday for four teams in Penticton — U13 boys, U14 boys, U17 boys and U17 girls — while the U13 girls started their quest in Powell River and the U15 boys in 100 Mile House.

All the teams qualified for provincial play by triumphing over their Kootenay rivals in mid-June.

This year larger organizations like Kelowna and Kamloops will be vying for provincial gold in the B Cup, so the Nelson teams come into the tournaments as the underdogs.

Last season the U18 boys surprised many by bringing home a provincial title.

The Nelson Star will have full coverage of the results in next week’s papers.
