KSS soccer team on to North Island

Kwalikum Kondors beat Gulf Island Scorpions to earn first position

Chalk up another victory for the Kwalikum Kondors senior boys soccer team as they beat the Gulf Island Scorpions by a score of 6-3, clinching the first overall position for the North Island tournament.

Daniel Doukakis, who found the back of the net three times for the Kondors, once again paced the Kondors on their way to victory.

Jacob Watson scored twice to go along with two assists and Tyler Lucente placed a beautiful header past the Scorpions keeper off a cross from Tony Trozzo to round out the scoring for the Kondors.

“It was a great win,” head coach Butch Gayton said. “We had a good little trip over to Salt Spring Island, getting off the bus and heading straight to the field for our little 15 minute warm up and away we went.”

“I was happy to see that we came out hard against them in the first half the way we did, the boys showed very well,” Gayton said.

“Our bench, which has been stepping up big time lately, played very well in this one also which is a nice thing to have for any team.”

The Kondors will now shift their focus to the North Island tournament, which kicks off on Tuesday at Merle Logan field in Nanaimo.
