The Prince Rupert boys under-14 team made the long trek to Kamloops on the Victoria Day Long Weekend.

The Prince Rupert boys under-14 team made the long trek to Kamloops on the Victoria Day Long Weekend, but returned without a victory against some tough southern competition.

After hours spent on the bus, the boys opened the tournament against the Westside Lakers of Kamloops, who bested the North Coast squad by a final score of 2-0.

Just six hours later the team faced off against eventual tournament winners Europeant Football School, who added the Prince Rupert team to a list of victories that would include every other team in the Slurpee Cup with a final score of 5-0.

The next morning the boys faced off against Vernon United in a highly competitive game that ended with neither team able to find the back of the net.

Before boarding the bus once again for the trip home, the Rupert team faced off against the Kamloops Blaze B. While the team scored their first goal of the tournament, Kamloops won the match 4-1.
