Conception Bay North Lightning provincial soccer champs
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.
