Strong soccer season for U11 boys

The Summerland U11 boys soccer team – the Tigers – had a successful season.

Beginning with a first place finish at the season-opening Icebreaker Tournament in Osoyoos, the Summerland U11 boys soccer team – the Tigers – had a successful season that ended with a second place finish at the Pinnacles Football Club Cup tournament held this past weekend in Penticton.

Following a 4-0 shutout of Penticton #2 on Saturday that was anchored by a strong defensive effort put forth by Sam Hume, Matt Lowery, Kieran Messier and Brett Cerutti on the back line and solid goaltending by Cooper Cowles, and goals by Zachary Boerboom, Kieran Messier and Jacob Mullin. They met a strong Penticton #1 team on Sunday.

The Tigers put in a strong effort but came up short, eventually losing 4-1.

The lone Summerland goal was scored by Josh Montgomery.

William Rodriguez and Kurtis Marsden contributed to a strong offence throughout the season.

Individual skills and team play improved throughout the season. Coaches and organizers look forward to a strong team next year.
