U14 soccer team playing well down stretch
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.
