Stettler boys’ U12 FC celebrated the end of their local soccer season with a 6-2 win over Camrose United

Stettler boys’ U12 FC celebrated the end of their local soccer season with a 6-2 win over Camrose United in a heated matchup between the two rivals.

Stettler had been unable to beat Camrose during the season, ending their first meet-up with a tie, and losing their second 1-0. The team “totally dominated” Camrose during the final game of the U12 soccer season, though, aided in part by the absence of one of Camrose’s key players, who was out with an injury.

Cole Nichols started the game out with the first goal, followed in quick succession by goals by Andrew Chapman, Josh deGuzman and Dylan Hilburn.

“The boys played phenomenal,” coach Steve Wildeboer said. “It’s the best they’ve played all season. They passed the ball like they’ve never passed before.”

Camrose recovered a bit after the 4-0 start, scoring two goals of their own, but Stettler’s Nichols and Chapman answered each with their own, and the game closed down 6-2.

The U12 boys will play in Three Hills at the provincials between July 11-13, where they’ll face Camrose again, as the team, with its silver, made it to provincials as well.

“Now we have to settle it,” Wildeboer said. “We each have a loss and a tie. It’s a big season-tie. We can’t have that.”
