Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) hosted the Kootenay Single A senior boys soccer play-downs on Wednesday (Oct. 16).

Nakusp ending up being the overall winner and will represent the region at the provincial championships. Nakusp beat Mount Sentinel from South Slocan 4-1 in the final.

GFSS had a good day with the highlight being a shootout loss to Mount Sentinel.

“Our overall play was encouraging as far as effort was concerned,” said GFSS Wolves’ coach Mike Phelan. “There were moments against opponents where the players worked together as a team but it was the inconsistency of team play that needs a lot of work. As a program we need to improve the individual skill level, game understanding and an attitude that focuses on intelligent playing within a cohesive team structure.”

Phelan says it’s a situation where patience is critical to the improvement of the program.

“In the short six week program of our season, we noticed the desire to improve and a willingness to commit to coaching. These individual and team qualities are important to better play in our future seasons,” he said.
