UPDATED: Nelson Selects U18 lose to Columbia Valley, 4-1

Nelson Selects U18 boys eliminated by Columbia Valley this morning.



The Nelson Selects U18 boys battled Columbia Valley on Saturday morning for the opportunity to travel to Penticton for provincials, ultimately losing 4-1.

“Columbia Valley opened the scoring eight minutes into the match,” coach Dan Szabo told the Star.

“Nolan Percival tied it up in the 29th minute on a blast from distance. Nelson played a good possession game and had many opportunities to score in the first 45 minutes but it would be 1-1 at the half.”

Columbia Valley came out strong in the second and restored their lead in the 52nd minute.

“They kept the pressure up and scored a couple more for the 4-1 win. Nelson, with only 12 players to begin with, lost their goalkeeper Darian Johnson in the 87th minute due to a hip injury following a collision.”

This means Columbia Valley will be heading to the provincials.

Other Nelson soccer teams have traveled to various communities this weekend to compete for their chance to qualify for the provincials.

More team results to come.
