The Con­cep­tion Bay North Light­ning cap­tured a New­found­land and Labrador Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion provin­cial ti­tle in dom­i­nant fash­ion ear­lier this month.

Play­ing Aug. 6 against team SSU in Har­bour Grace, the Light­ning cruised to a 3-0 vic­tory to claim the un­der-14 Provin­cial B Cham­pi­onship.

The Light­ning was one of 10 teams in ac­tion that week­end. Things didn’t click im­me­di­ately for the team in round-robin play, as the Light­ning lost its first two games, be­fore win­ning two straight by a com­bined score of 12-2. The two wins and two losses qual­i­fied the Bay Roberts team to play for the B provin­cial ti­tle.
