The rain held off on Sat, May 27th for some of our U17 Boys, who played a spirited exhibition match against the U19 Boys going to represent Nova Scotia at the North American Indigenous Games in Toronto in July. Read on for more details...
Carlos Ordoniez, coach for the U19 Boys going to the North American Indigenous Games, invited our U17 Boys for a friendly exhibition match against his team. Along with Coach Simon Wilson, Stuart McCormack and Chris Carlaw, a roster of our U17 Boys was formed and they headed over to Halifax, excited for the opportunity to meet some new opponents. The SMU turf was an ideal setting for an 11 a side match with two 45 min halves.
Storm Soccer thanks Coach Carlos and his team for hosting this great event and we look forward to more opportunities to play together in the future. The Club wishes the U19 Boys and their coaches the best of luck as they head to Toronto this July to participate in the North American Indigenous Games. This event is the largest continental sporting and cultural gathering of Indigenous people, welcoming more than 5,000 athletes, 2,000 volunteers and a number of spectators and dignitaries from across North America.
