Nelson’s soccer Bombers dominate in Creston

Nelson’s L.V. Rogers boys soccer squad won last week’s Creston tournament in convincing style.

The senior boys team took three of four games, coming away with a 3-0-1 record.

The boys started the tournament with a 3-0 win against Golden and followed it up with an impressive 1-1 tie against AAA Kamloops. The Bombers finished off the tournament by hammering Mount Sentinel 9-0 and crushing Rossland 7-0.

The Bombers’ victory is made more impressive by the fact that the team has only four Grade 12 players.

“They won the championship by playing some great soccer and using their width and depth in a possession game that totally dominated all the games,” said coach Dave Spendlove.
