Tornadoes taking shape as season progresses
Short-staffed squad drops 5-1 decision to Weyburn, but plenty of optimism as playoffs near

“We have five or six players who have never played soccer this year and it’s just incredible the growth they’ve shown in such a short time, especially defensively,” he added. “That’s quite a jump for someone who’s not used to the aggression that’s part of soccer, the aggressive nature of trying to attack for the ball. They’re getting an understanding of how that works and that’s the kind of positive growth we’ve seen.”
