Kodiaks sixth at provincials

The Credo Christian Kodiaks were minutes away from advancing to the semifinals when a late goal derailed them.

The senior boys’ soccer team was in Kamloops for the Single A provincial soccer championships.

And needing just a tie from the final pool game — which would have given them top spot in the group and a place in the final four — the Kodiaks conceded the go-ahead marker to the Pemberton Red Devils, losing 2-1.

The loss placed them in second in their group.

In the playoff round, Credo rebounded to defeat the Unity Christian Flames 4-1 before losing the fifth/sixth place game 1-0 to the Southridge Storm.

In the team’s pool games, the Kodiaks defeated the Immaculata Mustangs 5-2 and the Fraser Lake Cougars 4-0 before losing to Pemberton.

Matt Aikema, Justin Deddens, Devon Stam, David Kienaker and goalkeeper Emmanuel Renato earned game MVP awards.

Kienaker received the Commissioner’s 11 award for Credo.

And defender Michael Byzitter was solid on defence the entire tournament for the team.
