Nelson Selects U14 Boys side regroups to capture gold

The tournament got off to bit of a rough start for Nelson on Friday night when they took on Kootenay South

This season was the first time boys teams were admitted to the annual Terry Walgren Memorial Tournament in Nelson and the Nelson U14 Selects Boys squad made the most of the opportunity capturing gold.

The tournament got off to bit of a rough start for Nelson on Friday night when they took on Kootenay South (Castlegar/Trail/Rossland/Fruitvale). The end result was 2-1 for the visitors with Jona Caney scoring the only goal for Nelson.

The U14s regrouped on Saturday when they took on Kootenay East and came away with a 3-0 victory. Parker Shaw-Lazier scored a pair and Caney — with amazing assists from Carter Maclean-Simpson, Jaydon Wouters and Shaw-Lazier — notched the other goal.

Needing a win on Sunday morning to gain a berth into the gold medal match, the Nelson side came out firing against Creston and scored a 3-0 win on goals by Aaron Abrosimoff, Marco Falcone and Rowan Megale.  Again, amazing assists were  provided by Wouters, Gareth Bracewell and Rowan Megale.

The U14 boys final provided an opportunity for revenge for Nelson as they were matched up against Kootenay South. In a high energy affair, Nelson came out on top with a  3-1 win. Goals came courtesy of Wouters, Shaw-Lazier and Caney.
