Championship game great experience for keeper

Isaac Boehmer loved playing in the B.C. Premier Soccer League title game despite loss

Isaac Boehmer

Isaac Boehmer was one goal away from winning a U14 EA Sports B.C. Premier Soccer League championship.

Boehmer, a product of the Pinnacles Football Club, is a goalkeeper for the Thompson Okanagan Football Club in Kelowna and lost the championship 2-1 in overtime to Coquitlam Metro-Ford SC at Trillium Park in Vancouver on Nov. 21.

“It was really good. It was very competitive,” said Boehmer of playing the division leaders.

Boehmer loves playing in high pressure situations and his TOFC squad was up against a bigger team that moved the ball well, but Boehmer said he and his teammates put up a good fight in their first championship game.

“We were still happy even losing in the finals,” he said, adding that they played the best they could.

TOFC finished fourth in the league with a 4-2-0 record and advanced to the championship by defeating Surrey United FC 3-2 in overtime.

Boehmer said the season was really good even though they had early struggles going 1-1. They then won three straight to finish with four wins in six games.

Boehmer’s season also included attending the Whitecaps pre-residency camp two weeks ago.

He saw action in one game and played well making a key save on a penalty kick.

With a boost in confidence, Boehmer hopes to help the TOFC U15 win a championship next season.
