The CBN mi­nor soc­cer un­der16 male team cap­tured the gold medal in the B di­vi­sion of the Soc­cer NL un­der-16 mega tour­na­ment on home soil. The Shan­nons de­feated Gan­der 3-0 in the fi­nal match held at the Car­bon­ear Recre­ation Com­plex. It wasn’t the only CBN gold as the CBN Light­ning took gold in the C di­vi­sion.

A pair of soc­cer teams from Conception Bay North are bask­ing in cham­pi­onship glory this week.

This is af­ter un­der-16 male teams from CBN mi­nor soc­cer and the CBN Light­ning cap­tured pro­vin­cial ti­tles dur­ing the un­der16 male mega tour­na­ment jointly held in Har­bour Grace and Car­bon­ear Aug. 21-23.

CBN mi­nor soc­cer Shan­nons— which is based in the host com­mu­ni­ties — blanked Gan­der 3-0 to take the mega B cham­pi­onship in a match held at the Car­bon­ear Recre­ation Com­plex on Sun­day morn­ing.

CBN got goals from Matthew Hoyles and Cody Vaters (2), while rid­ing a strong de­fen­sive sys­tem to the pro­vin­cial ti­tle.

The vic­tory capped an im­pres­sive tour­na­ment for the home­town team.

The group posted a record of three wins and one loss. They got thing started with a 6-2 vic­tory over the Light­ning, which was fol­lowed by a tough 2-1 loss to St. Pierre’s ASIA.

On Day 2 of the tour­ney, CBN got back to its win­ning ways with a 7-1 vic­tory over the Fiel­dians of St. John’s and a 4-1 de­feat of Gan­der.

Mean­while, the Light­ning got goals from Darcy Dawe and Blake Kenny en route to 2-0 vic­tory over Ex­ploits in the fi­nal of mega C di­vi­sion.

The pro­vin­cial ti­tle was a long time com­ing for the Light­ning, who fell painstak­ingly short in the cham­pi­onship of the C di­vi­sion fi­nal last sum­mer.

The Bay Roberts-based club fol­lowed the loss to CBN with a 50 de­feat to ASIA on Fri­day. That was fol­lowed by a 2-1 loss to Ex­ploits and a 5-0 shutout of Mount Pearl ahead of the cham­pi­onship game.

The un­der-16 fe­male mega tour­na­ment was also held in the Car­bon­ear-Har­bour Grace re­gion, mark­ing the first time both the male and fe­male tour­na­ments were held in the same com­mu­nity at the same time.

While the Light­ning did not have a team reg­is­tered in the tour­na­ment, the host CBN ladies went win­less in four at­tempts.
