On Wednesday, the students of Sioux Mountain went to New Prospect public school in Dryden, for a soccer tournament. The Sioux Mountain Thunderwolves, tied against Lillian Berg and Ignace and lost against Sacred Heart.
The scores against Lillian Berg was 1-1. The scores against Ignace was 2-2. The scores against Sacred Heart was 5-1 due to penalty shots during the final half. Ms.McMaster says, “It wasn’t all about winning the tournament, it would have been great too, but it was very fun for everyone and we all had a good time watching Sacred Heart in the semi-finals.”
Soccer all-star C.Eric missed 4 shots on the Ignace goalie. All-star goalie G.Ethan let in only 1 shot, in his whole time in the net (not letting in any of the other attempted goals!) The students have had practice three times a week, for 4 weeks and were extremely pumped to be going to Dryden for a tournament. Thank you to all the teams that came out, all the coaches for setting it up, the people running the canteen, the schools for coming, and to the city of Dryden for letting us use their soccer fields and nets. It was just really wonderful for everyone, and I hope a lot of people who went to watch and play had an amazing time like our team did!
A lot of us on the team are really good friends, and had a wonderful time on the bus ride there and back! Everybody on the team enjoyed being in Dryden and being with each other. Our coaches Mrs. Ward and Ms. McMaster did a wonderful job at coaching us and setting up the tournament. The students had a lot of fun during practices, and our own games against each other while practice. Thank you everybody! The soccer season is now over, and everyone can’t wait for it to return in the next school year.
