UPDATED: Stettler FC U12 boys win gold, headed to provincials

The Stettler U12 boys’ soccer team had a great run this season, winning gold beating Camrose 3-2.

The Stettler U12 boys had a wonderful season, according to head coach Mike Enyedy.

They beat Lacombe in a shootout on Wednesday, June 21 and on Thursday faced Camrose and defeated them to win gold.

The boys had a great start with a 2-0, with Brennan Konschuh and Colby Frank scoring them.

Camrose came back to score and trailed 2-1, when Hayden Baker scored Stettler’s third.

The opponents were able to score a second goal but was unable to equalize.

“This year the boys have played great together and if they continue to play as a team I am expecting we will finish strong,” said Enyedy. ” The boys were excited to beat Camrose as this was the only team they lost to early in the season.”

According to Enyedy, Stettler kept the pressure on throughout the whole game with a great performance by the keeper, the defence and the forwards.

“They kept a positive attitude through the whole game and kept playing as a team, encouraging each other which kept the momentum going in our favour,” Enyedy added.

The boys had a great weekend too in Ponoka, and came out strong which has put them in the provincials.

In the first game Stettler beat Ponoka 3-0, with two goals scored by Ben Philipsen and one by Colby Frank. Then they faced Lacombe in the semi-finals, winning 6-4. Garyn Roth, Stefan Oprea, Philipsen and Hayden Baker all scored one goal each, while Frank scored two.

In the finals, Stettler lost to Camrose, 2-1 in a shootout, with Oprea being the lone goal scorer. However, that didn’t dampen their chances at provincials.

”We are off to provincials in Camrose from July 7 to 9 and the boys are looking forward to the tournament,” Enyedy said.
