Killarney Phoenix U15 boys take bronze at provincials
Congratulations to the Killarney Phoenix U15 boys team which finished as provincial bronze medallists last weekend.
The team competed in the 2016 BC Soccer U13 - U18 Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial Cup held in West Vancouver. The boys earned their berth in the provincials by playing in the finals of the Coastal Cup when they finished in second place.
The team completed the provincial tournament with two wins and a loss. They started off July 7 with a 5-2 win over the Prince George Timberwolves. The next day, they lost 5-3 to Surrey FC Avalanche before wrapping things up with a 4-0 win over North Van FC Surge on Saturday.
KYSA shared the third-place finish with the Nelson Selects.
Well played Killarney Phoenix! You did KYSA proud!

Whitecaps-KYSA Club Night Sept. 24, 2016
Once again, KYSA members and families will get a chance to see the pros play up close as the host club for the Vancouver Whitecaps game being played Saturday, Sept. 24 at 4 pm against the Colorado Rapids.
Not only will KYSA families get access to discounted tickets for the game at BC Place, our players will get a chance to help out on the field itself.
The most popular of these activities is when 22 KYSA players aged 5 to 8 years each get to walk on the field with one of the starting 11 players of each team. That could include their favourite Whitecap or Colorado’s latest addition, Team USA goalie Tim Howard!
KYSA players will also fill the following roles:
12 Flag Bearers, aged 11 years-plus
12 Ball Retrievers, aged 14 years-plus
30 Hi5 Line members, aged 7 to 13
This club night is one of KYSA’s few fundraising events. All are welcome to attend. KYSA is now selling tickets to the game for the low price of $25 each. To order tickets, please contact Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment will be collected when tickets are delivered. KYSA accepts cheques or cash.
Any KYSA players who want to fill one of the on-field roles, please also contact Peter at email@example.com and provide the player’s full name, their age and their parent’s name.
Come out and support local soccer by cheering on the Whitecaps and KYSA!

U15 Killarney Phoenix does KYSA proud
After a hard-fought match, the U15 Killarney Phoenix finished in second place at the Coastal Cup final last Sunday in Aldergrove.
They played hard and well, ending the first half tied 1-1 with Surrey Pegasus. But the Pegasus added two goals in the second half, winning with a final score of 3-1.
The Phoenix did Killarney proud with their exciting march to the championship final, which also earned them a well-deserved spot in the provincials.
Now it’s on to the provincials being held in July in West Vancouver where the Phoenix will represent not only KYSA but Vancouver. Well done, boys!

KYSA U15 Gators win championships
2016 Cup Champions U15 Gators
Congratulations to the U15 Gators who earned the championship with a 1-0 overtime win over AYSC Storm!
The girls were one of three KYSA teams to compete at Cup finals last weekend.
Both the U15 Phoenix and U17 Booted Eagles played close games but had to settle for second place. The Phoenix came back in the second half to tie the game at 2-2 but couldn’t keep the momentum going, eventually losing 4-2 to VUFC.
With only 10 minutes left in the game, the Booted Eagles were tied 0-0 but weren’t able to hang on long enough to force overtime, losing 2-0, also to VUFC.
Three cheers to all three teams for making the Cup finals! You did KYSA proud!
Keep an eye on the U15 Phoenix, who will start their Coastal Cup run in April, in hopes of qualifying for the Provincials.Cup Finalists U15 PhoenixCup Finalists U17 Booted Eagles
