Thompson Okanagan Football Club under-13 girls and under-14 boys team seasons end in playoffs

A 5-0 loss to Coastal FC ended the Thompson Okanagan Football Club under-13 girls season in the EA Sports B.C. Soccer Premier League.

The team lost in the semifinal the weekend of June 22 to 23 on the coast. Despite coming out hard to start,  a quick transition and counter-attack led to two quick goals for Coastal early in the first half. TOFC continued their play with intensity and generated chances, but entered the final half trailing 3-0. The Coastal FC keeper was the difference making several diving saves.

“The girls played a strong game, and did not quit despite being down,” said head coach Brian Dewar. “The early deficit made it a challenge to recover and bring the game back against a talented Coastal team. I am very proud of the effort this team brought, each and every one played with grit and heart. To make the semifinals in a high performance league such as this is an accomplishment itself. “

The team ended its regular season schedule placing fourth with a 3-8-1 record.

The boys under u-14 ended its season with a 2-1 loss against Surrey United in the playoffs. They wrapped up regular season play with a 2-2 draw as Penticton’s Grayson Perrier scored the equalizer. TOFC finished fourth in the standings with a 4-5-5 record.
