High School Soccer Concludes

Pipestone Flyer

    The high school soccer season ended with all three girls teams from Christ the King (CTK), Leduc Comp, and Beaumont were defeated in the city playoffs.

    Both Leduc and Beaumont won their cross over game as the Tigers defeated Ardrossan 3 to1 and the Bandits took out Sturgeon 4 to 1. In quarterfinal action Leduc fell to Paul Kane 3 to 1 and Beaumont was defeated by St Albert 5 to 0.

    The CTK Chargers lost in the City II Division semifinals 9 to 0 to JH Picard. The Pumas went on to win the title defeating Strathcona Christian 6 to 2 in the finals.

    In boys action the Beaumont Bandits were upset in the quarterfinals when the fourth seeded St Francis Xavier X Men won 2 to 0 in a closely played game. Meanwhile the CTK boys had to withdraw from the playoffs due to the inability to field a complete team.

    The interest in soccer continues to grow and local high schools have seen an improvement in skills and spirit as more students have added soccer to the sports they are willing to try and improve.
