Despite not fielding a full side and losing one player to a red card

Gold medals for Rossland U15 boys

Rossland’s U15 boys in the Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association came out on top on June 26, bringing home gold from the playoff tournaments that ended the season.

Rossland’s U15 boys in the Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association came out on top on June 26, bringing home gold from the playoff tournaments that ended the season.

It was an exciting game, tied 0-0 at half time despite the fact that Rossland started two players short of a side due to injuries and holidays. Then Rossland’s Derek Reimer got a red card and was sent off, complaining to the ref in no uncertain terms about a Castlegar player who had fouled him. He was allowed his penalty kick before leaving the pitch.

Zeb Dueck turned the tide with a goal off a corner kick that Castlegar claimed was a hand ball. Luckily for Rossland, the linesman had a good vantage point and could see that it went in off Dueck’s chest. It wasn’t over yet.

Jacob Knight went down with a serious injury and had to be taken to hospital for X-rays and treatment. But even with four players down, Rossland held it together for a 1-0 win.

Brett Evans made some awesome saves in goal, Kaji Doell showed amazing turns of speed, and Adam was strong in defence.

Nolan Rosa had some very fancy foot work to outsmart the opposition, while Levon Farley and Wesley Haas were always where they were needed.

Derek Reimer was hardly slowed by players hanging onto his shirt.

Thanks to Tim Evans for all the great coaching.
