SAMS Soccer Team performs well in Zone Championships

SAMS Soccer Team performs well in Zone Championships

Earlier in the fall our co-ed team made up of grade 8-12’s ended up going to Williams Lake to get some games in before our Zone Championships in late October. In Williams Lake, they ended going into a shootout in the second game against the AAA team, and almost beat them.

A couple of weeks later we hosted the annual Mudbowl tournament at SAMS. We had both a senior and junior division. Anahim Lake as well as Acwsalta School participated as well. The Mudbowl finally lived up to its name since we had torrential rain, which made the games and play interesting. Excellent sportsmanship was exhibited by all of the teams and players; I think it’s safe to say it was a memorable and fun Mudbowl.

Having practiced and fundraised hard all season the team was poised to have some competitive games against some similar caliber teams at zones. The energy and enthusiasm from this year’s team was especially evident after their first game, they ended up winning 1-0 over another co-ed team from Dawson Creek.

Our second game the next day was our best as we tied the top team in the tournament Burns Lake 0-0. Blair Hans made some incredible saves to keep us in the game. The whole team played excellent defense, unfortunately we went to a shootout (we prefer overtime!!) and lost.

Overall the team finished with a 2-1-1 record, and should be very proud of their showing in the tournament. The soccer team would like to thank the following people and organizations for their support: School District 49 Board of Trustees, Jeremy Baillie, Alex Boileau (coach), Kelly Nestegaard (coach), Leonard Kozak, the Bus Garage, Abra Silver, Kaila Willis, Kopas Contracting, parents who keep supporting us, Oran Hoppe, Craig Tuck, Justin Gray, chaperones Kim Moore, Marcus Schieck and Shannon Cherry,

Members of the SAMS zones team include: Connor Kopas (captain), Morgan Durocher, Etienne Le Bouder, Andrew Christensen (co-captain), Elijah Mecham (co-captain), Blair Hans (goalie),  Jordan Hall, Christian Webber, Kelly Harrison, Lauren Harrison, Ashley Moore, Dylan Tuck, Jordan Tuck, Sam Stewart, David Brooks, Rhys Nygaard, Isaac Silver, Aaron Shieck, Ezra Mecham.
