Soccer season now in full swing

Matches were played in Ashcroft, Logan Lake, and Lillooet last week.

The fourth week of play in the South Cariboo Minor Soccer Association saw a full slate of games played in Ashcroft, Lillooet, and Logan Lake. Teams are getting into their stride, thanks in large part to the dedicated volunteer coaches and managers who give their time to ensure the players have fun while learning new skills.

In U7 action, Cache Creek Veterinary Hospital played People’s Drug Mart, JD Flagging took on Logan Lake 2, and Clinton played Logan Lake 1. There was one U16 game, which saw Lillooet defeat the River Inn 5–1 at home.

There were four U10 games last week. In Ashcroft, Lillooet 2 went down 8–2 to A&W, while Subway defeated Logan Lake 1 by a score of 5–1. Graymont took on Logan Lake 2 in Logan Lake and won 3–2, while Lillooet 1 blanked Dairy Queen 7–0 in Lillooet.

U13 play saw Ashcroft Irly shutout Lillooet 2 by a score of 4–0, and Logan Lake 1 defeated Second Time Around 6–3; both games were in Ashcroft. Logan Lake 2 took on Safety Mart at home and drew 2–2, while Lillooet 1 and Interior Savings also played to a 2–2 draw in Lillooet.

U10 and U16 games are on Mondays at 6:00 p.m., and U13 and U7 teams play on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. Take advantage of the fine weather to come down to one of the matches in your community and enjoy “the beautiful game”!
