Sooke U14 boys soccer team earn trip to finals

Squad went from last place to first in less than a year

Sooke’s U14 boys are making a comeback this year, successfully placing in the final championships of the Lower Island Soccer Association on Feb. 18 and 19.

The 180-degree turnaround is nothing short of extraordinary, as the team was at the bottom of the league last year, said Rhonda Krych whose son, Vincent, is a returning player this year.

“They only won four games throughout all of last year, but this year, they’re in first place and only lost one game,” she said. “It’s just a good group of kids.”

Krych said the team also has a couple of new players join this year, which ironed out a lot of the team’s chemistry.

“The kids from last year have been playing really well, working more as a unit now, they’re talking to each other more.”

The U14 boys are also the only team in the Sooke Soccer Association that made it this far in the soccer cup.

The final cup championships on Feb. 18 and 19 will be held at Camosun College.

The U14 boys have a regular game in Sooke this Saturday.

“They’re excited and they’re having a good time,” said Krych.
