The Williams Lake U13 Storm rep soccer team travelled to Prince George over the weekend for a two-game series against Prince George to decide the regional championship with the winner advancing to the provincial finals.
In the first game the Storm came out slowly and fell behind early to a determined Prince George squad. Williams Lake managed to even the game at 1-1 early in the second half but a late goal by Prince George put the game away with a 2-1 win.
Williams Lake marched into game two knowing they needed to win, and by at least two goals if they wanted to take the series and move on.
After a scoreless first half Williams Lake netted an early goal to take a 1-0 lead. They then added a late goal with only a few minutes left to take a 2-0 lead.
Prince George threw everything they had at Williams Lake to try to even the series goal count but Williams Lake held them off with stellar defence by the entire team, holding on to the 2-0 win.
The win in the second game gave Williams Lake a 3-2 aggregate score for the series, taking home the medals and advancing to the provincial finals in Aldergrove from July 5-8.
