The Central Cyclones came away with a pair of silver medals from the Saskatchewan High School Athletics Association boys and girls provincial soccer championships this past weekend.
At the boys’ tournament in North Battleford, the Cyclones opened with a 6-2 win over See See Wa Hum before defeating Regina Riffel 3-2 in the provincial semifinal. It was another close game in the championship contest, with Yorkton Sacred Heart edging the Cyclones 3-2.
The Peacock Tornadoes were also in action and fell 5-1 to Sacred Heart in their opener and 5-3 to Poundmaker/Little Pine in the consolation semifinal.
Things went similarly well for Central at the girls’ championship in Regina as they won their first game 2-1 over Regina Luther and advanced to the final with a 1-0 victory over Moose Jaw league rival Vanier. The title game saw Saskatoon Marion Graham take a 6-0 win, capping a run where they scored at least six goals every game. The Vanier Spirits won their first game 6-0 over Humboldt and lost in the bronze medal game 2-0 to Warman.
