thanksgiving tournament

In North Vancouver, Canadian Thanksgiving is not an early opportunity to beat our cousins south of the border to the best turkeys. It is the time of the year when the North Shore Girls Soccer Club (NSGSC from now on) plays host to more than 150 teams from BC and Yukon for it the annual soccer tournament.

This year the club hosted 160 teams (2700+ players), playing more than 300 games over three days. As in past years the weather gods looked kindly on the event, and it was a great success.

It was a scorching hot afternoon for a 1pm game, but at least the spectators had some shade in the bleachers of the new Fen Burdett Stadium on the North Shore.

NSGSC came into the game with back to back wins at the Seattle Sounders and Capital Timbers. 

The first half was a pretty even affair, although there was not too much goal mouth action.  The home team had a couple of close calls going over the bar, and our goalie had to be on point a couple of times.

The half ended with no score.

The second half was much more in favour of the NSGSC, with most of the action being in the visiting half.  The home team were rewarded for their efforts with a couple of goals.  The first came about through persistence, and a defensive mix up, and the second was from a strike that the goalie didn’t handle well.

NSGSC held on for a deserved win, increasing their current streak to three.

Next game is July 9th, 3pm and Fen Burdett vs OSA Football Club
