Immaculata captures Okanagan Valley A soccer title

Mustangs defeat rival Kelowna Christian in the final; both teams qualify for provincials

The Immaculata Mustangs celebrated the Okanagan Valley A boys soccer title Saturday in Penticton.

The Immaculata Mustangs are the Okanagan Valley high school A boys soccer champs for 2012.

The Mustangs defeated their local rivals, the Kelowna Christian Knights, 1-0 in last Saturday’s final in Penticton.

In an evenly-played affair, the Mustangs moved ahead on a goal by Jesse McCarthy and, thanks in large part to the goal of Jake Harman, hung on to the lead the rest of the way.

According to coach Paul Freire, Immaculata’s players of the tournament were four unsung heroes: Gavin Day, Michael Macdonnell, Jesse McCarthy and Jake Harman.

The Mustangs had a tough road to get to the final, defeating rivals St. Ann’s from Kamloops 1-0 on a goal by Corbin Beauchemin.

A resounding 9-0 victory over Ashcroft followed, with goals coming from Chris Macdonnell (2), Jesse McCarthy (2), Lachlan Wallace (2), James Casorso, Max Lauretta, and Corbin Beauchemin.

The semi-final saw the Mustangs defeat the upstart Similkameen Sparks 2-0 on goals by Jesse McCarthy and Chris Macdonnell.

The Mustangs now move on to the B.C. championship Nov. 1 to 3 in Victoria, along with KCS, Similkameen and Osoyoos.
