“Despite the weather, it was nice watching the kids play, slipping and sliding everywhere. It was very entertaining”, said Eli Hill, a parent enjoying the game and a day off of work.

The tournament began with primary-age soccer players, competing until two teams were left. Oliver M. Smith took home the gold, and Kawenni:io the silver award. The Junior-aged students played afterwards, with Lloyd S.K. taking home the gold.

Student and mid-field player Selina Keye said, “It was fun. I almost scored a goal!”

Kylee Keye, planning forward, agreed: “It was good. I almost scored a goal, too! I like playing with my team.” Cousins Selina and Kylee, showed great sportsmanship, saying the other teams played well.

Parents and kids agreed that it was a great day, despite the rainy weather days before.

“Kids are having fun and happy, and the weather and the field held up,” says parent Andrew Brown.
