While the Falcons did not necessarily soar above the crowd, they did get off the ground.

According to James Waddell, team coach, “they played really good soccer.”

While they only won a single game, the team did manage to hold the second-place team for most of the match against them, getting over run only later in the game he said.

Out of the 16 teams at the provincials in Victoria, the team came in 14th, and probably did well to get to the provincials, given they were such a young team, with lots of players from grades 9 and 10.

Waddell said the team was in a really tough pool, against private schools with exceptionally well-resourced athletics programs, though the Fort team was incredibly well-supported by the community, raising almost $6,000 in a short period towards the trip to the provincials.

He thinks the team is going to be even stronger next year, and did a great job.

 

“The girls played really, really well, and that’s all that matters.”
