The U15 Scorpions claimed the North Shore Championship for the third time in four years last Sunday with a penalty kick win over the North Vancouver Fury.

The two teams locked up first in a league clash on Saturday, where the Fury won 2-3.

Jordan Kammerle and Everett August scored the Scorpions' goals in the loss.

On Sunday, the Scorpions returned to the North Shore for the North Shore Cup Final. Defenders Keegan Inkster, Philip Fogarty, Cole Cooney, Evan Griffin and Liam Rankin were focused and determined, keeping Fury's scoring chances to a minimum.

In the midfield, Jordan Dunk, Finn Rogers, Ben Luporini, Duncan Armstrong and Quin Towert used quick passes to move the ball to the attackers. Despite their dominance of the half, the Scorpions were caught standing still in the dying moments of the first half, and left the field down 1-0.

Keeper Keeran Peel stopped everything in the second half, and used his massive drop kick to send his team on the attack.

The Scorpions' dominance continued, but the Fury's aggressive defenders and agile goalie kept their team alive.

Scorpions' coach Rod Kammerle moved Liam from defence to the attack, and he quickly scored on a scramble resulting from a potent free kick by Everett.

In penalty kicks, Everett, Ben, Jordan, Liam and Justin Fodchuk all scored, while North Van missed one shot.

U13 boys

The Falcons found their mojo in the second half en route to a 3-1 win over New West United at Queen's Park in New Westminster last weekend.

United led 1-0 at the half, but early in the second half, Simeon Campbell found the back of the net to tie the game.

Passing was the game changer as Jake Podgorenko sent Simeon through for his second of the game. Then Brock Flatt scored to insure the win.

The Falcons are currently in second place in their division with two games remaining.

Next home game is this Saturday, Feb. 22, at 1:30 p.m. at Kinnikinnick Park in Sechelt against the Marpole Blue Aces.
