FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Soccer Club Under-17 Girls Strikers returned home after a tripleheader in Edmonton in mid-January.

The Interdistrict Youth Soccer Association is a Tier 1, seven-team league. Its teams play 14 games over a six-month span.

In their first game on January 20th, they fell to the Edmonton Strikers FC 5-0. Later that day they defeated the Saint Albert Impact FC 2-0 as they got goals from Leigh Hughes and Jordynn McPherson, for their first EIYSA League victory. On Sunday versus the Internazionale Edmonton SC, they lost by the score of 7-1, with the lone goal courtesy Maelynne Wan.

Local teams play one game a weekend, but due to travel FSJSC plays three games over one weekend once per month.
