FORT ST JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St John Northern Strikers overcame adversity in their respective Provincial tournaments last weekend.
The U16 girls played their hearts out in Okotoks, Alberta finishing 5th place overall in the Tier 4 Alberta Soccer Provincials. The team lost their first two games, 4-1 and 4-2 but had a tight third game ending with a tie. In game four, the team was shut-out 5-0.
Regardless of the difficulty, the U16 girls held their heads high and played excellent defence throughout the weekend.

The U16 boys also won the Fair Play Award for their age group and team member, Harrison Sewell tied to claim the title of Top Scorer Overall in the U16 age group.
Finally, the U14 boys worked tirelessly in the Boys U14 Tier 3 Alberta Soccer Championship which was in Edmonton, Alberta. The boys faced two losses and a tie and played remarkably sportsmanlike.
