Stingers advance in Colonist Shield

A tough Esquimalt senior boys soccer team gave Stelly’s Secondary all it could handle in a semi-final match

A tough Esquimalt senior boys soccer team gave Stelly’s Secondary all it could handle in a semi-final match in the Colonost Shield Teir 2 soccer finals on Oct. 30.

Stelly’s coach Ryan Braun said his team had beaten Esquimalt 2-0 earlier in the season but on this day, the visitors opened the scoring late in the first half.

Inspired by the lead, Esquimalt came out strong but Stelly’s (6-0-1) would regain their composure and much of the ball possession. The Stingers tied the game early in the final half and kept the pressure on Esquimalt goalie Paul Grieve — who had to make strong saves to keep his team close.

Stelly’s, however, booted home the winning goal with only minutes left in the match, advancing to the Colonist Shield final (held Nov. 4, after press time) against the other semi-final winner, Mt. Doug.
