Stettler FC U16 boys scored a great victory in their final league game against Camrose on Thursday, June 29, in Stettler, winning gold.
What looked like a game that could go either way, especially when Stettler was down 1-2 with not much time left, the team was able to focus, equalize and finally lead with 3-2, which is how the game ended.
A confident coach, Garrett Burns said that his team was well-rounded going into the provincials to be held in Camrose from July 7-9.
“There’s not much we need to work on heading into provincials, as I feel the team is very well-rounded in every position,” Burns said. “I always hold these kids to the highest expectations because every time I do they fully exceed them.”
Burns feels that the boys have a great chance at provincials because of their performance so far.
“I’m so proud of this group of boys who have gone above and beyond,” Burns said. “I must say that this is collectively the best team I have coached in the last 10 years and I hope we can do Stettler proud in provincials. This is such a great town and I know this group of young men will do great by it.”
