Gunners score often

The Gunners blazed into the next round of the playoffs with a convincing 5-1 victory over Port Albern

The Gunners blazed into the next round of the playoffs with a convincing 5-1 victory over Port Alberni.

The Campbell River U15 boys soccer team was on the road Sunday for the first round of the Provincial B Cup playoffs.

Just seven minutes into the game, Carter Coblenz opened the scoring for the Gunners with a left-footed tally from a tough angle.

For minutes later, Zach Tillapaugh scored the first of his two goals, with the second coming a 24 minutes. James Swatz then got into the offensive action as potted two more markers before the half.

The local boys cruised through the second half with solid midfield and defensive work, and strong goal keeping by Collin Massie.

The competition gets tougher this Sunday when the Gunners play Oceanside in the Upper Island final. The winner will advance to the regional semi-final against the Lower Mainland representative, with the provincial finals slated for July.

In two regular season games, Campbell River lost one and earned a tie with Oceanside.
