Homegrown soccer talent win two gold, three silver in Soccer District Final

There were 28 games played over the two days at the Soccer fields in Sooke. Sooke came away with two golds and three silvers.

The U15 boys with their gold win.

It was an action-packed weekend with 28 games played.  Many games went into PKs (penalty kicks) for other teams but Sooke was spared the nail biting!  The U15 and U16 boys came out with gold.  U14 boys and U15 and U16 girls with silver.   We couldn’t be more proud of our players.  Sooke has some great talent.  The weather held up for us for the most part and we would like to thank all of the volunteers for making the weekend run so smoothly.  Sooke Soccer depends on volunteers and we couldn’t have done it without the parents and kids that helped out.
