Silver for Nelson’s U11 boys squad in Sandpoint

The Nelson Selects U11 Boys capped off a successful season with a hard fought silver medal victory

The Nelson Selects U11 Boys capped off a successful season with a hard fought silver medal victory at the Pend Oreille Cup tournament earlier this month.

“The boys should be very proud of their showing and their marked improvements over the summer season,” said coach Mark Harold. “It was a great team effort at this tournament.”

The Nelson team lost in the finals in a penalty kick shootout to the eventual winners from Coeur d’Alene. It was an exciting final with the teams exchanging the lead throughout the game and with no winner being decided after the first round of penalty kicks.

In the semi-final game, Nelson played a determined game and came from behind to beat the Idaho Thunder team with a well deserved 4-3 victory.

The U11s played very well within the qualification rounds with a 2-1 record outscoring their opponents 12-5.

“Our goal for the season was to have all of the boys improve their soccer skills. It was an excellent way to end the outdoor season,” said coach Jamie Spendlove from Soccer Quest.

Team members at this tournament (pictured above) included: Luke Taylor, Noah Whiffen, Ryder Jeffers-Marzicola, Tyler Colgan, Matt Wouters, Blue Campbell, Gus Tahara-Edmonds, Max Spielman, Jesse Harold, Luka Eyre, Blake Markin-Hellekson and Liam Jones.
