A golden finish

The Rossland U11B boy's Dunham soccer team won gold this year after heading into the Super 8 league playoffs in fourth place.

It was a golden end to a very good year.

The Rossland U11B boy’s Dunham soccer team won gold this year after heading into the Super 8 league playoffs in fourth place, allowing only one goal in three playoff games.

The young Rossland club faced Beaver Valley in their first playoff game June 17 and handled the Greater Trail club 8-0 to advance to the semi final match up against first place Castlegar Anderson.

Castlegar Anderson—who compiled a formidable 9-1 record during league play—could not crack Rossland’s defence and the league’s top club fell 1-0 on June 24, with Dunham making an under dog trip to the finals.

The Rossland club continued its stingy defence Wednesday, June 26 against the neighbouring Trail club, allowing only one goal and scoring two of their own to win the league playoff title.

Dunham finished the league with a 4-6 record, behind Castlegar Anderson, Castlegar Larocque (7-3) and Trail (5-5).
