Nelson Selects boys still have shot at medals in Provincial B Cup

The Nelson Selects boys teams are still in the mix for medals after a solid day of play in Prince George

The Nelson Selects boys teams are still in the mix for medals after a solid day of play in Prince George during day-two of Provincial B Cup action on Friday.

The U13 Boys rebounded after a tough 5-0 loss in the Thursday opener to claim a 3-0 win over Williams Lake in the second game.

Aidan Mushumanski, Ryland Negreiff and Ezra Foy scored for Nelson in the win.

“It was a solid team performance from top to bottom,” said U13 coach Kerry Dyck. “Strong defensive performances by Thomas Baxter and Jacob Erickson helped fuel the win.”

The U13s will finish the round robin on Saturday morning with a game against the Vancouver Island champion LYS United. They will need a win to have any chance at a medal.

The U16 Boys also got into the win column with a 2-1 win over Williams Lake.

Nigel Zeigler scored in the first half to spot the Nelson side a lead going into the half.

Williams Lake tied the score early in the second, but then James Miller was pulled down on a breakaway in the last minute of the game. Spencer Szabo made good on the penalty kick to give Nelson the 2-1 lead that would stand up at the final whistle.

“We owned the play and it could have been a much higher score, but we didn’t finish,” said U16 coach Chuck Bennett.

The U16s will take on the Campbell River Blue Backs on Saturday. If they win or tie, Nelson will be in the mix for a bronze medal.

After a big 1-0 win in their opening game of the tournament on Thursday over Juan de Fuca, the U17 Boys were looking to continue their road to the gold medal match against the top-ranked Surrey FC Rangers.

The U17s got off to a great start against the powerful Lower Mainland team when Ethan Perkins scored to give Nelson the 1-0 first half lead.

Though Nelson played a disciplined second half and pushed Surrey to the limit, the Coastal champion managed to score a pair of goals in the second half to take the 2-1 win.

The U17 Boys will take on Terrace in their final round robin game on Saturday and still have a chance to make it to the gold medal game.
