The Marine Harvest U18 boys soccer teams won their third straight Island Cup Championship.

Third time lucky for Marine Harvest

Marine Harvest, Campbell River Youth Soccer Association U18 Boys enjoyed a “three peat” last weekend as they claimed their third back-to-back Island Cup Championship with a commanding victory over Gorge FC of Victoria. This season the victory was much more emphatic than any other year as the boys won 7-0.

Marine Harvest, Campbell River Youth Soccer Association U18 Boys enjoyed a “three peat” last weekend as they claimed their third back-to-back Island Cup Championship with a commanding victory over Gorge FC of Victoria.  This season the victory was much more emphatic than any other year as the boys won 7-0.

The boys put together a commanding performance, a fitting final performance on Island soil for the boys before they head to the Provincial Championships in Penticton in July.

Shane Dumanoir led the way with an MVP performance upfront alongside the ever energetic and tricky Michael Park. The central midfield duo of Zach Hamilton and Wyatt Bryce simply overpowered the Gorge and wide midfield players Nicholas Javervall, Samuel Jepson and Kyle Fawkes  were a constant threat on the flanks. Defensively the partnership of Eric Christensson and Neil Pomeroy was solid and full backs Malcolm Maundrell and Justin Gjerde was strong in the tackle.

Two early goals from Marine Harvest and further clinical finishing from Campbell River before the half made it a 4-0 game and the second half was a stress free affair as the boys contained a now tired Gorge outfit and they added a further three goals.

The boys will take a short break before embarking on a tilt at a second Provincial Championship Gold to add to the one they earned at U13. The lads have enjoyed some great success over their youth soccer tenure and this will be their fifth trip to the “Show.” It would cap quite the era if the team could finish their youth soccer years with a Provincial Gold.
