Oceanside’s U11 Boys soccer side capped off the front end of its season Saturday with a spirited effort against Nanaimo at Arrowview Elementary.
The visitors opened the scoring, and Brandon Nicol countered for Oceanside for a 1-1 tie at the half.
Logan Vasara streaked in and struck for the home side in the second half, but it wasn’t enough as the visitors tallied three in a 4-2 win.
“It was really good game,” concurred Oceanside coach David Horsley, adding, “the boys have come a long ways since the start of the season — this group has worked really hard.”
Backstopping the locals in net was Freeman Ashacker, who his coach said, “played a fabulous game … he kept it close (and) he inspired the team.”
The side is off now until early January.
