The Williams Lake U13 Storm rep soccer team returned from the KYSA Slurpee Cup sporting gold medals around their necks.
The Storm travelled to Kamloops over the long weekend to play in the annual tournament, which ran Saturday and Sunday.
In its opening match the Storm dropped a hard-fought 3-2 decision to the eventual tournament winner, Vernon United. A slow start saw the Storm fall behind early. Despite a flurry in the final minutes Williams Lake could not score the equalizer.
In game two Williams Lake extinguished the Kamloops Blaze, 4-0, to advance over the home team. Defence and offence were both firing on all cylinders, the team said, adding Kamloops was limited to just a few shots in the match.
The Storm continued its winning ways Sunday morning bouncing Pemberton, 5-0. Williams Lake’s speedy forwards and stalwart defenders dominated the play, limiting Pemberton to only two scoring chances.
In its final game of the tournament Williams Lake beat an undefeated Terrace club, 5-1, scoring early and never looking back to win the ‘B’ division.
Williams Lake also hit three posts and three crossbars while only allowing three shots on its keeper.
