Soccer at Clearwater Secondary School has had a strong start to the season, says coach Ian Eakins.

The team won its first game of the season, an exhibition match with Barriere, by a score of 5 – 0.

They followed this up with a convincing win over Kamloops Christian School on Thursday, Sept. 17. Score against KCS was 4 – 2 for Clearwater.

Kamloops started the game with a quick goal but Clearwater came back and the score was 2 – 1 at the half, said Eakins.

Aaron Murray scored twice for CSS, as did Aiden Sim. Clearwater’s goalie Donald Ritchie played a solid game in net, making a number of diving saves. No one could have stopped the two goals that did get in, said the coach.

Next game for the soccer squad will be an exhibition match against Merritt after school today (Thursday).

Volleyball excites interest

Students at CSS are showing plenty of interest in volleyball this year, according to athletic director Marie Giesbrecht.

There are three girls’ teams: Grade 8s, juniors and seniors, plus two boys’ teams: juniors and seniors.

 

The senior girls took part in a tournament in Kamloops the weekend before last. They hosted a play day on Tuesday. Look for results in a future issue of the Times.
