Stettler U15 soccer team wins bronze

Participates in Camrose tournament

The U15 girls’ team had a successful weekend at the Camrose Night Classic winning the bronze medal after a round robin record of 1-1-2. The team started off with a well-earned 2-1 victory over Cold Lake during a very cold and wet 11 p.m. start game on Friday night. Saturday started off with a tough 5-0 loss to the eventual gold medal winning Whitecourt Warriors. With a short turn around the team followed up on Saturday with a 3-1 loss to the Lago Lindo Flyers from Edmonton where the team outplayed their opponent but lost the game on two penalty kicks that were awarded to the Flyers. The team was back at it Sunday for a game against the Jasper Predators. Needing just one point to clinch the bronze medal, the girls earned a 1-1 draw securing the one point.

The girls outplayed their opponent from Jasper for the majority of the game but they had a hard time capitalizing on some scoring chances. Overall, the weekend was a huge confidence builder for the young team but outstanding goal keeping by Denise Raho, solid defensive play and an ability to outwork there opposition allowed the girls to earn a well deserved bronze medal.
