Stettler under-12 boys earn Tier 3 league title

The Stettler FC Tier 3 under-12 boys won the gold medal in the Central Alberta Soccer Association at home last Thursday

The Stettler FC Tier 3 under-12 boys won the gold medal in the Central Alberta Soccer Association at home last Thursday, with a 5-2 victory over Camrose.

Daylan Kuefler scored three goals for Stettler and singles went to James Switenky and Johan Bouwer.

This the first season that the Stettler Minor Soccer Association has fielded teams in the Tier 3 division of the CASA, with entries at the under-12 and under-16 boys’ levels.

John Bromwich and Greg Switenky are the coaches of the under-12 boys and Bromwich also coaches the U16 boys, who play in their provincial qualifying tournament this weekend in Camrose.

In the under-12 league final, Stettler opened a 1-0 lead in the first half, before the teams combined for six goals in the final half.

The parity between Stettler and Camrose was evident all season.

“After playing each other eight times in league play and tournaments this year, the equality was remarkable,” coach Switenky said. “Each team won three times and we tied twice.

“Combined in games against each other, Camrose scored a total of 23 goals, while Stettler scored 22. Amazing competition.”
