FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The North Peace Secondary School’s Senior Boys soccer team was at BC ‘AAA’ Provincials this past weekend in Burnaby.

The team had a tough go of it, as most of the teams were from schools in the soccer-crazed Lower Mainland. On Thursday the NPSS boys lost their first match against Argyle 3-1. NPSS had a brief lead after Rui Vale scored in the tenth minute. Unfortunately Argyle was able to score three unanswered goals for the win. Looking to bounce back against LA Matheson, the North Peace boys were kept off the scoresheet in Game 2, losing 3-0.

RA McMath Secondary was the team’s next tough opponent from Richmond on Friday morning. Though Rui Vale once again was able to put the ball into the goal, the team sadly lost 3-1 once again. On Friday afternoon, NPSS took on Rutland Secondary, the bottom team from Pool C. A goal from Carter L’Heureux got North Peace on the board, but in a continuing theme, North Peace fell to Rutland 3-1.

Finally on Saturday morning, Rui Vale had a two goal effort against Cranbrook’s Mt. Baker Secondary. Unfortunately the Kootenay-based team ended up besting North Peace 5-2.
