For the third consecutive year, Scott Lewis’ charges are heading to the provincials.

Nelson Selects U15 boys won both of their games in impressive fashion to earn the Kootenay berth at the upcoming Provincial B Cup championship.

Nelson beat up on Cranbrook 5-0 in its opening match.

“Cranbrook crumbled as they had no subs and had lost their star player Ryan Grady to a knee injury in the earlier Kootenay South tournament,” says Lewis.

In its second game, not only did Nelson keep rival Kootenay South off the scoresheet, but they also kept them from getting a shot on goal. Nelson went on to win the match 3-0.

“The boys played the best soccer I have ever seen them play this weekend,” adds Lewis.

“Ethan Perkins is now an integral part of our attack and played exceptional. All we have worked on this year is attacking and it seems to be starting to pay off.

“The boys are peaking and I am just hoping it is not to soon. We will try to keep the momentum up.”

The U15 boys will travel to 100 Mile House for the provincial tournament.
