After it was cancelled last year due to wildfire smoke, this year’s annual Terry Walgren Memorial Soccer Tournament brought together over 48 teams of boys and girls from across the West and East Kootenay to play the beautiful game.

Teams in six divisions competed for the top prize over the weekend. Those divisions included under-14 boys and girls, U16 boys and girls, and U18 boys and girls.

Teams from Nelson brought home five medals, and three golds.
