Stettler FC U16 girls and boys win bronze in provincials

Stettler U16 teams bring home bronze, while U12 and U14 had variable results in Camrose.

This past weekend, Stettler teams descended upon Camrose to participate in the provincials tournament from July 7-9.

Although the senior teams had more success, bringing home bronze, the other teams were unable to make a mark despite playing some hard soccer.

The Stettler U16 girls placed third, bringing home bronze. They played home team Camrose for the bronze medal game and ended with a 3-3 tie. It was in the shootout that the girls came out on top, easing into their rhythm, scoring three goals, while Camrose were unable to get any into the net.

Coach Shelley Davis-Hall was beyond happy with the way the girls had dug deep and worked as a team.

“Each and everyone of the girls wanted it and they got it,” said Davis-Hall. “They worked hard in the heat and never gave up. Am so proud of all of my girls.”

The Stettler U16 boys had a great tournament too and played Rocky Mountain House in the bronze medal game, coming out with a 7-2 win. Stettler’s Steele Nichols scored a hat trick and ensconced the win firmly for his team.

“It was a great weekend and I was very proud of this group of young men who played their hearts out,” said Coach Garrett Burns. “They came away with a provincial medal as I knew they could, and that’s a big achievement.”

Stettler FC U14 girls placed 8th, while Stettler FC U12 girls placed 6th and Stettler FC U12 boys placed fifth.
