It was a great weekend for youth soccer in the Cariboo late April.

At the Quesnel Indoor Soccer Tournament, the Williams Lake under 12 boys team came home with silver medals around their necks.

“Our boys played so well as a unit, and it was exciting as both a coach and a parent to see the teamwork and skill that they displayed,” said coach Katie Dyck.

The U12 portion of the tournament included two teams from each Williams Lake and Prince George, and one team from Quesnel.

The team said it enjoyed the opportunity to play on Quesnel’s indoor fields so early in the season as a precursor to the outdoor season.

“Quesnel has a beautiful indoor facility, and you can really see how they have developed their kids since getting it,” Dyck said.

“Williams Lake would put out some truly first-class athletes with access to such an asset. But, until we get our own, I welcome the invitation to play in Quesnel’s tournaments. Good work boys!”
