The Senior Boys Soccer Team from Fort St. James Secondary School has much to be proud of after a very successful season.

The team travelled to three tournaments and with each one, their game just kept on improving according to Head Coach, James Waddell.

“The team placed third in their last tournament before zones.  At the Westside Warriors Invitational in Prince George, this third place finish was the result of playing against many double and triple “A” schools,” Waddell said.

“And this result also gave the boys the confidence they needed going into the Zone Championship Tournament also held in Prince George.”

The team continued to play very well at the Zone Championship Tournament winning four of their five games.

This earned the boys a second place finish and an opportunity to represent Fort St James

Secondary School at the Provincial Championships held in Surrey from Nov 2 – 4.

According to Waddell, the team performed very well at the Provincial Tournament and represented the region well.

“The boys ended up in fifteenth place at this tournament.  The other teams in our pool finished third, fifth and ninth.  This was a very tough group. Our young team of 22 boys only had five senior aged players.  Almost half of this team is made up of Grade 8 aged players. Considering how young they are, the future of boys’ soccer at FSJSS is looking to be force for the next few years,” Waddell said.

“The boys should be very proud of what they achieved this season and especially so of how well they represented our school and town.  We received several positive comments this season from other coaches, referees, and opposing players about how well our young team plays.”

Congratulations to Wesley Best for receiving one of the Commissioners 11 Awards at the Provincial Tournament.

The boys and coaches would like to thank all the people of Fort St James for their generosity during their bottle drive and in helping the team attend the Provincial Championship Tournament.
