Spectrum advanced to the Colonist Shield final Thursday (Nov. 12) against Esquimalt, after knocking off Stelly’s in their semi final match last week.

Played up at Centennial Park field Nov. 5, Stelly’s Secondary’s senior boys soccer team got off to a good start as forward Jared Canil put one past the visitors’ goalkeeper Sebastian Schwarz.

The Stingers would carry much of the momentum and hold onto the ball for much of the opening half. However, Spectrum took advantage of their speed along the sidelines and before the end of the half, scored three times.

The second half started much the same way and Stelly’s would pull to within a goal early, scoring to make it  3-2.

Looking to press, Stelly’s had many scoring opportunities, including a rally in front of Spectrum’s goal. They struck the goalpost and missed two more scoring opportunities before Spectrum defenders would clear the ball.

The visitors would add one more to make the final 4-2, ending Stelly’s season.

Coach Ryan Braun said his team played well and didn’t give up. They will be looking forward to next season.

Spectrum and Esquimalt play for the tier two title at Hampton Park.
