United Sabre Cats claim Saska­toon sil­ver

The Southwest Booster - - SPORTS -

Three Swift Cur­rent Foresters United Soc­cer Club teams were in Saska­toon over the week­end for the Saska­toon East­side Gre­vers Tour­na­ment. Al­though the mon­soon-like con­di­tions threat­ened to wipe out the en­tire tour­na­ment, the Swift Cur­rent Foresters United un­der-12 Sabre Cats were able to make it onto the pitch for their fi­nal tour­na­ment of the out­door sea­son.

Fri­day evening, the United Sabre Cats opened their tour­na­ment with a 21 win over the Lake­wood Dragons.

Satur­day morn­ing, they tied the Aurora Ice 1-1 to re­main un­beaten.

Satur­day evening, they clinched a spot in the cham­pi­onship fi­nal with a 1-0 shutout of the East­side Wild­cats.

The U12 United Sabre Cats had a re­match against the Lake­wood Dragons in Sun­day morn­ing’s cham­pi­onship fi­nal as the two teams locked up in a very de­fen­sive match. The game was played to a near stale­mate be­fore Lake­wood scored the only goal with just a few min­utes re­main­ing in reg­u­la­tion for a 1-0 win.
