That match was lost by Sundre with 5-2 after a hard fought battle in 29C. Sundre U16 ended up 4th in the province this year, and I think as their coach that we should be really proud of these young sportsmen.

Mike Newton, Tyler Kazcinski, Jelmer vanden Hadelkamp, Flurin Obrist, Tristan Jochems, Garret Janz, Cory Nault, Jitse vanden Hadelkamp, James Dyer, Tate Irving, Carson Barthelow, Chase Griffin, and Lucas Dyer, congratulations on putting Sundre on the map of competitive soccer in Alberta. The team’s coach is Patrick vanden Hadelkamp and and the assistant coach is Lee Dyer.
