No need to brave the elements for elementary soccer
Participation was the key in the annual district elementary school boys' soccer tournament.
There were 12 elementary schools and 14 teams playing in the junior tournament for Grade 4 and 5 students over two days at Alexander and Quamichan fields.
The emphasis was on sportsmanship,'' noted Joseph Boudreau, principal of Tansor Elementary, who organized the event. "Each player received a ribbon for participating. I believe everyone had a great time.''
The weather was great, but the seniors weren't so lucky. Their tournament was cancelled the next day because of rain and field conditions.
