The U14 soccer team lost a close one last Thurs­day at home when they hosted Olds.

De­spite this, the team is play­ing well head­ing into the fi­nal stretch of the sea­son.

The Drumheller team hosted Olds on May 19, a peren­ni­ally tough team. The U14s didn’t know what to ex­pect.

“Last year I for­get the score, but we were blown away, so I’m happy with how the played,” said coach Martha Cham­bers. “It was a pretty even match.”

Olds scored three goals right out of the gate. Cham­bers said Olds con­trolled the ball well and kept the Drumheller team caught up in the neu­tral area.

At half time, Cham­bers said they re­fo­cused and came out ready in the sec­ond half.

“This is our game, we are not end­ing this with a zero on the score sheet,” she said.

“The kids got two goals right away, had we had so much mo­men­tum, if we had 10 more min­utes, we would have scored again.”

Find­ing the net for Drum- heller was Chase Cham­bers and Chiko Banda. The fi­nal score was 3-2 Olds.

Coach Cham­bers is heart­ened that they are able to be com­pet­i­tive with some of the stronger teams in the league head­ing down the stretch of the sea­son.

Cur­rently, ac­cord­ing to www. big­coun­trysoc­cer. com, Drumheller U14 is in first place with a 3-2-1 record, fol- lowed by Olds with a 3-0 record and three games in hand. This week Drumheller faces Lin­den.
