On June 9, a senior girls soccer game alumni game took place at Fort St. James Secondary School.

The current 2016 FSJSS girls soccer team played against a team including past Falcon soccer players.

Coach, James Waddell was thrilled with the turnout.

“The game was a huge success and drew many soccer fans, parents and past students to the field to watch,” Waddell said.

“It was very entertaining for me to watch so many talented players on the field at one time.”

According to Waddell, Marti Wiltse who graduated from the high school three years ago was instrumental in putting the game together.

“I saw this happen in Fraser Lake and I thought, what a good idea,” Wiltse said. “And my sister plays soccer so I really wanted to play with her.”

For Wiltse, the game was a great opportunity to meet with her past coach, Waddell.

“It was so awesome to play with him again,” Wiltse said.

For Waddell, it was a special moment as well.

“I haven’t seen some of these players in five or six years. It was so good to catch up,” Waddell said.

“I think this game is a stepping stone towards a women’s soccer league forming in Fort St. James.”

According to Waddell, there has already been a group of about 14 women playing regularly on Tuesday nights.

“I think many of the players from this game are interested in forming a league and also in making this an annual event.”
