The Falcons Fall Classic Boys Soccer Tournament proved that the boys soccer team from Fort St. James Secondary School were ready, capable and up for a challenge.

The tournament, held on Oct.16th and 17th, brought six teams together as they battled for a top spot finish.

Fort St. James Secondary School along with Northside, LDSS, Westside, FLESS and NVSS were the teams competing this year.

FSJSS won their first game against Northside with a 2-1 finish. The Falcons continued their winning streak with an impressive 8-0 finish over NVSS.

On the 17th, the Falcons played Westside beating them 1-0.

Shortly after, the final game was about to begin. Mark Pearson, #21, plays defence for FSJSS and he felt confident about his team. “We’ve played all these teams before and beat them. We know what to expect,” Pearson said.

Captain, Daniel Repko, #7, couldn’t agree more and was happy with his team and how far they’ve come. “We’re pretty good considering all the new players this year. We’ve got lots of grade 8’s on the team,” Repko said.

The final championship game against LDSS was well underway as the Falcons battled hard for a victory but the win went to LDSS in the end with a 3-0 finish.

Despite the loss, Coach James Waddell, couldn’t feel more positive about his team who earned a 2nd place finish in the tournament.

“We’ve come far and it’s fantastic,” Waddell said. It’s a great group of boys and they really look after each other. The whole team is very athletic. This is an excellent opportunity to allow them to play the sport,” he said.

Waddell is thrilled to be coaching the team this year. “I haven’t coached in a really long time and with this group, it’s really great,” he said.

Stay tuned for the “Zones” Tournament. This will be a qualifier for the Provincials in Kamloops.
