The Williams Lake U12 Storm boys’ soccer team returned home from the Kamloops Slurpee Cup May 18-20 with a solid result.
The Storm opened its tournament Saturday morning with a 3-1 win over Vernon United, followed by a 2-1 setback against the Kamloops Blaze in its second game.
On Sunday Williams Lake rebounded with a 6-0 drubbing of the Nelson Rapids, which put them in a tie in the round robin for first place with Kamloops.
The head-to-head tiebreaker bumped Williams Lake into second place, which setup a playoff matchup with the West Kelowna Dyna Might.
But laced up at 1-1 heading into the second half Williams Lake gave up a pair of quick goals to fall 3-1.
Williams Lake’s Jacob Helminger received two most valuable player awards in the tournament.
