North Shore Street Soccer Tournament a Big Success
Four teams participated in a heated series of round-robin games to decide who would be crowned the top team of the city’s street soccer league this past weekend. The tournament took place on Saturday afternoon and drew dozens of players, coaches, and spectators from across the Lower Mainland.
The league’s newest team the Burnaby Kickers got their first taste of street soccer and their coach says they are eager to play more.
In the end Portland FC took on the North Shore Lions, a team sponsored by the Salvation Army, in a final game that saw emotions run high. Despite a solid effort by Portland FC, the white-shirted Lions triumphed keeping the cup on their side of the bay and winning the match.
