The Nelson Selects U17 Boys dominated two KEYSA squads (U16 and U18) and the U17 side from Coaldale, Alberta to win gold at the Sam Steele.

The Nelson squad was undefeated, and keeper Cole Sutherland was rock solid and posted an impressive tournament shutout.

The Selects controlled play throughout the entire tournament with their possession-style game. Dominating the two squads from Cranbrook on Saturday, Nelson ended Saturday with a perfect 2-0 record.

On Sunday morning, Nelson handily defeated the squad from Coaldale, Alberta. Coaldale also defeated the Cranbrook squads, setting up a repeat match between Nelson and Coaldale for the gold medal.

Once again, Nelson dominated the Alberta squad. The ball rarely left the Coaldale end and Nelson captured gold.
