Neither Thompson Okanagan Football Club team came out on top, but both still made history by reaching the B.C. Soccer Premier League Cup finals.

It was the first time since the program’s inception that TOFC squads made it to finals in the club’s most successful season to date.

In the U14 boys championship, TOFC was tied 1-1 after regulation and ended up losing 2-1 to Coquitlam Metro Ford Soccer Club at the end of overtime.

Lucas Hickling of Kelowna, who just spent a week training with the Vancouver Whitecaps pre-residency team in Vancouver, was exceptionally strong for the Okanagan club.

The TOFC U17 boys suffered a similar fate, losing 3-1 to Coquitlam Metro Ford.

Tied 1-1 after regulation, with goalkeeper Nick Reitsma of Kelowna stopped a penalty kick in the eighth minute. However, extra time proved to not be their friend as Coquitlam scored twice to seal the championship.

A total of four TOFC teams played in the semi finals, with the two boys teams winning and moving to the final games.
