Sabres hosting South Central Tier 2 Zone girls soccer championship
The St. Anthony’s Sabres girls soccer teams are looking to tune up this week heading into the Tier 2 South Central Zone finals.
The team has been playing hard all season and last week played a strong Carstairs team to a 1-0 loss.
“We still have a few things to tweak this week,” said coach Gavin Makse.
Makse says this week they will be preparing for the season ending tournament. At practice, they are again scrimmaging against some of the local adult coed players. He says this will help the team, partic- ularly in getting them to make quicker decisions and move the ball faster.
“We are just taking a few too many touches right now,” he said.
There are six teams that qualified for the first Tier 2 Zone championship ever, including Olds, Bert Church of Airdrie, Strathmore, Highwood High School, from High River, St. Anthony’s and a combination team made up of players from Hugh Sutherland in Carstairs and Olds Koinonia Christian School (OKCS).
“Any of these teams could win it, including ourselves. They are all very evenly matched, which is one of the goals of having two tiers of soccer this year,” said Makse.
The tournament starts for the Sabres at 8:30 a.m., versus Hugh Sutherland/ OKCS in pool play, their second game is at 3:10 p.m. versus Highwood High.
Playoffs are on Saturday with the championship game at 4:30 p.m.
