7 medals for Kelowna United teams at soccer provincials

Local boys and girls teams saw success at the 2019 championships

The Kelowna United Football Club delivered some standout performances at this year’s youth soccer provincials.

Seven local teams earned medals at the 2019 championships, which pitted teams across the province in age group divisions ranging from U13 to U18.

The Kelowna United (KU) U13 girls won gold in their division in the provincial B cup. They outscored their opponents 14-2 during the tournament to take home the championship.

The KU U15 girls won gold in the provincial B cup division. They won 2-1 in penalty-kicks.

It was a silver-place finish for the KU U16 girls squad. They lost in the finals, 3-1 against Quesnel. The team was awarded the U16 Fair Play Award at the end of the tournament.

The lone KU boys team in the provincial B cup division to medal was the U17 squad, who walked away from the championships with the bronze medal. The U17 boys earned a 3-0 victory in the bronze medal game over Terrace.
