Vancouver Street Soccer League holds its first tournament
The Vancouver Street Soccer league held its first tournament last Saturday. It was a perfect day to christen the new turf field at Memorial South Field (at Fraser & 41st). Six teams competed, including Team Vancouver City Hall with team captain Gregor Robertson and the members of Team Canada from the Homeless World Cup. The teams played five games each with only a short break in-between matches, leaving even the most skillful players worn out by the end. However, not even the near-freezing temperatures, could take away the players' drive, keeping them going until the early evening.
