Get­ting their kicks in CBN

The Compass - - SPORTS -

Soc­cer fields in Bay Roberts and Car­bon­ear were alive with ac­tiv­ity over the week­end (Aug. 14-17). The CBN Light­ning soc­cer club wel­comed 14 un­der-14 soc­cer clubs to the re­gion for the un­der-14 pro­vin­cial mega tour­na­ment. There were three lo­cal en­tries — CBN, Light­ning Yel­low and Light­ning White — who com­peted with some of the best play­ers in their age group in the prov­ince. The tour­na­ment was a great show­case for the beau­ti­ful game in the area and was an eco- nomic boon for the re­gion. In the end, Light­ning Yel­low (D di­vi­sion) and White (E di­vi­sion) cap­tured sil­ver medals in their re­spec­tive di­vi­sions-The Com­pass presents th­ese shots from the event.
