Ponoka U17 boys win semi-final provinical qualifier 5-4

Play Camrose in finals

Ponoka is hosting the Central Alberta Soccer Association’s (CASA’s) provincial qualifying tournament for U13 to U19 teams, as well as the U11 district tournament.

U17 boys

The Ponoka U17 boys soccer team won their semi-final provincial qualifier against Wetaskiwin 5-3 in a hard-fought match June 23.

The two rivals were tied 2-2 early in the second half.

The Ponoka Storm were second in the standings coming into the game, versus Wetaskiwin in fourth place.

Wetaskiwin took the lead 3-2, but the Storm answered back five minutes later, tying up the game, and followed that with a corner kick goal, taking a 4-3 lead.

Ponoka scored again a few minutes later, but a Storm player received a yellow flag and Wetaskiwin was awarded a penalty kick, bringing the score to 5-4 for Ponoka.

Both teams, though appearing tired, kept up the pressure and at the buzzer Ponoka was victorious.

CASA has been awarded an additional provincial berth in this division so two teams will proceed to provincials.

The Ponoka U17 boys played Camrose later that day in the provincial qualifying final, losing 2-4. Both teams will represent the division at provincials in July.
