Carihi girls host indoor tournament

Carihi Senior Girls hosted their 17th Annual Indoor Tournament Dec. 29.

The inclement weather over the past few weeks has ensured very few players have had the chance to play soccer. The tournament provided a welcome opportunity for many local players to get some touches and run off the Christmas turkey.

The tournament saw players largely from the North Island with a very strong Vancouver Island University claiming the tournament win. They enjoyed complete success with 11 wins in all 11 games but had to be at their best to beat a strong Campbell River Masters Outlaws team in the semi final and the most recent Carihi Alumni group of 2013 in the final.

Comox Revolution brought two competitive teams and Campbell River Ravens were competitive in all games. Rounding out the nine teams were three teams from Carihi with players ranging from Grade 9-12.
