The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Sub­mit­ted The Drumheller Mail

The Un­der 8 Red Rap­tors Drumheller Mi­nor Soc­cer Club team claimed bronze medals at the An­nual Car­bon Sports Day Tour­na­ment last Satur­day, June 11.

The Red Rap­tors opened the tour­na­ment with a nar­row 3-2 loss to Car­bon but were en­cour­aged with this re­sult as they only had 4 play­ers for most of the 5 vs. 5 game. In their next game, the Red Rap­tors set­tled for a 3-3 tie vs. Ir­ri­cana and fin­ished the tour­na­ment in win­ning fash­ion de­feat­ing Bow­den 6-1.

Head coach Gavin Makse was ec­static with the Red Rap­tors ef­forts at this tour­na­ment as this marked the first time the team had ever played a game all sea­son. In ad­di­tion, the ma­jor­ity of the team falls in the Un­der 6 cat­e­gory, which made the re­sults even more im­pres­sive by play­ing up a level.

The Un­der 10 Drumheller Mi­nor Soc­cer Club team also com­peted at this tour­na­ment and tied for 4th place.

The DMSC Spring soc­cer sea­son comes to an end on Wed­nes­day, June 22 with the an­nual bar­be­cue at the soc­cer fields in the In­dus­trial Area.


The U8 Red Rap­tors had a great tour­na­ment at the Car­bon Sports Days and won a bronze medal. They are (back l-r) El­liot Gam­ble, Adrian Ferro, Jonas Clark, Yoyo Mpisi and head coach Gavin Makse, with (Front; l-r) Joseph Makse, Rowan Ri­card and Danielle Makse (ball girl).
