Nelson U16 Boys Selects off to a solid start

In the U16’s opening game of the tournament they matched up against a club from Bozeman, Montana.

The Nelson U16 Boys Selects took part in the Hot Shot tournament in Coeur d’Alene earlier this month and came home with a 1-1-1 record.

In the U16’s opening game of the tournament they matched up against a club from Bozeman, Montana.

Nelson enjoyed most of the possession in this match, but didn’t find the back of the net until Bryce Twible stepped into a Spencer Szabo corner kick with seven minutes remaining. In the final minute Szabo scored the insurance marker on a penalty kick after Micah May got hauled down while breaking into the 18-yard box.

Keeper Liam Guenther posted the shutout and played in all three games on the weekend.

In the team’s Saturday night game, the Selects took on Flathead, Montana.

Another strong match for Nelson, who went up 1-0 on a blast from May midway through the second half. Heartbreak for the Queen City side, however, as Flathead threw everything they had in the closing moments and scored in a scramble with just seconds left.

Needing a win to have any chance at a playoff spot, on Sunday afternoon the Selects took on Vernon

In a very competitive match, Nelson again showed poise as they played a good possession game and had plenty of chances. Vernon got the lone marker of the game in the 14th minute after a long shot fooled the Nelson keeper.

Though a disappointing result, Nelson was buoyed by the fact that they have had all they could handle by this same Vernon squad in past years and have shown remarkable improvement in just the past year alone.

Nelson U16 boys is a mix of U16 and U15 players.

The U16s will be in action this weekend on home turf at the Terry Walgren tournament.
