Stettler FC U16 girls headed to provincials

After a great weekend of soccer in Ponoka, Stettler U16 ends with a 2-1-1 tally.

The Stettler U16 girls’ team played a tremendous weekend of soccer this past weekend at provincial qualifiers in Ponoka, winning two games, tying one, and losing one.

On Saturday, June 24, in their first game they faced Lacombe and won with a 2-0 shut out. Later they played Rocky Mountain House and tied it 1-1.

The following day, June 25, they again started with a win against Ponoka, 4-1, but they were unable to keep their momentum going, which led to a loss against Camrose, 2-0.

Heading into the qualifiers, Stettler was ranked fifth, but after the weekend they are headed into provincials ranked second.

“Each and every one of my girls played incredible this weekend,” said Coach Shelley Davis-Hall. “They knew what they needed to do and they succeeded. Along with the parents, I am extremely proud of these girls, their drive, and most importantly, their sportsmanship.”

Stettler will play in the provincials in Camrose from July 7-9.
