The Kelowna United U15 boys celebrated the October long weekend with a gold medal victory at the Richmond FC Thanksgiving Tournament.

United was at the top of its game for most of the tournament, posting a 3-0-1 record while outscoring their opponents 11-4.

After opening with a 2-2 tie against Penticton, Kelowna rang up three straight wins—3-1 over Guildford FC, 3-0 over Richmond and 3-1 over Royal City.

United performed well defensively and  backstopped by a solid goal keeping effort from Gavin Edall. The transition and build up were complimented by a strong scoring attack with excellent finishing skills.

Scoring at this year’s tournament was led by Hunter Blucke, with additional goals contributed by Braeden Cangiano, Joseph Parsons Wright, Jagger Thomas, Cameron Sorensen and Cam Wilson.
