Fusion U16s battered, bruised and proud


  • Jul. 20, 2011 11:00 a.m.

On June 26, the Ponoka Fusion U16 girls’ soccer team earned their way to the 2011 provincials held July 8 to 10 in Stettler. The team had an uncertain beginning to the season but finished the season with 7-4-1 record in league games and a silver medal at the Camrose Night Classic tournament.

At provincials, the girls were able to maintain control of the ball throughout most of the games, however they failed to score many goals against some amazing keepers and stellar defense on the top teams in Alberta. This young team finished this season eighth in the province, battered and bruised, but proud of their playing and their accomplishments as a team.
