Soccer report: Athletes gear up for invitational tournament

Several teams will be competing with local ones at invitational tournament May 3-5

By Tyrone Laskey

Just like that, week three of the South Cariboo Minor Soccer Association (SCMSA) season is complete. Already you can see improvement in all the teams as members learn to play alongside their new teammates. The activity on Monday and Wednesday, with games all over the park, is a nice sight, and also a sign that the warmer weather is not far away.

As we move a month into the season, it also means that the U10 and U13 invitational tournament is approaching quickly as well, with this year’s tournament taking place from May 3–5 in Ashcroft. This tournament is very popular, as many teams from different areas come to participate.

Joining the two teams from Ashcroft, two teams from Lillooet, and teams from Logan Lake and Lytton in the U10 division will be teams from Clearwater, Barriere, and Merritt. In the U13 division, three teams from Clearwater, two teams from Barriere, and one team from Merritt will be joining joining Ashcroft’s three teams, Lillooet’s two teams, and the teams from Lytton and Clinton. It’s always nice for the local teams to get an opportunity to play teams from other communities and see how they match up.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, why not come watch some of our communities’ excellent youth soccer players? The association will have the concession up and running throughout Saturday and Sunday, so if you’re coming to watch some of the soccer action make sure to stop by for a cheeseburger or hot dog. The SCMSA also has bouncy castles booked for Sunday, May 5.

Here are the results for week three.
