Justin Foster scored three times, while Cristian Pena Angulo tallied once in the contest.

Wednesday morning, the Falcons’ junior boys picked up an 8-0 victory at the school’s Columneetza Campus.

Wesley Fraser notched two goals, with Dayton Smith-Hall, Calvin Croswell, Mitchell Blusson, Ben Airey, Hayden Daye and Zane Barr all adding singles.

The junior boys team is now finishing up its season, however, three of the team’s players have been invited to play for the senior team this weekend when they travel to Dawson Creek for the North Zone Championships.

“The team, as a whole, have shown the execution of the drills they’ve been doing, the maturity level is very noticeable and their commitment and drive for the game has been enhanced every practice and game,” said coach George Fraser.

“The poise and gameplay they continue to show is excellent to see.”

As for the games against Bella Coola, Fraser said the visiting side showed great determination.

“Even with the score getting away from them, the Bella Coola team continued to press the attack and never game up in either game,” Fraser said. “Their coach said that this is their first year starting this program. I see they will have a very dedicated and hardworking team in the coming years.”
