The Stettler U12 boys put up a great play but were beaten in the end by the more dominant Sylvan Lake team 5-3 in a home game on Thursday, May 26.

“We have a young team with only one player returning from last year’s U12 team,” said coach Kelly Cheater. “Our only goal is to get a little better each game.”

In the other games, Stettler U16 boys won 6-1 defeating Lacombe convincingly.

While the U14 boys played Wetaskiwin, outclassing them by a huge margin of 9-0, they lost 3-2 when they faced off with Sylvan Lake.

The U14 girls played Camrose in a rain-soaked game winning 2-1 on Monday, May 30, with the goals being scored by Kayla Mielke and Bailey Musgrove.

“Although it rained throughout the game, the girls were troopers and we ended up winning finally,” said team manager Lynda Imbery.

Coach Kennedy Fisher was happy with the performance.

“The girls are having an amazing season and are developing in a lot of different ways,” said Fisher. “They remain undefeated in league and tournament play so far.”

The U12 girls face Lacombe tonight in a home game, having had a great performance so far with three wins, one loss and one tie.

“The girls have started their soccer season successfully this year,” said manager Kim Van Straten, as coach Nadine Lang is hoping for some great play and a win for the girls in the “Under the Lights” tournament in Camrose this weekend.
