Cranbrook’s U12 Rovers of the Kootenay East Youth Soccer Association went undefeated at the 2015 Lethbridge FC Tournament this past weekend en route to claiming gold.

In the opening game of the tournament on Saturday morning, the Rovers defeated Calgary’s SWU Thunder by a 4-1 margin.

The Rovers advanced to the championship with a 4-2 victory in the semifinal before claiming the gold medal with a 4-1 victory.

It has been a successful spring for the Rovers thus far, as they rounded out a silver-medal finish in Invermere the weekend prior to this weekend’s golden outing in Lethbridge.

In Invermere, the Rovers went undefeated, finishing second after tying in the gold-medal game and losing the goals-for tiebreaker.

Next up, the U12 Rovers will participate in the 2015 Sam Steele Tournament and Development Jamboree from June 19 to 21 in Cranbrook.

After that, the Rovers head to Moscow, Idaho, August long weekend before rounding out the season with a tournament in Sandpoint.

The U12 Rovers have also participated in tournaments in Nelson (third place), Kalispell, Mont. (fifth place), and Creston (first place) this spring.

The U12 Rovers are coached by Wade Schlatter and Peter Hermann, and managed by Shauna Beaulac.
