Valley United U-14B boys rolling along in NSSL


KINGS COUNTY - The decision by the Valley United Soccer Club to have its U-14 boys play at the development (B) level rather than the higher A level in the Nova Scotia Soccer League this season seems to have been a good one.

As of July 6, the Valley U-14B boys led their division with a 7-0-1 record, 25 goals scored and eight allowed in eight games.

In the June 28 game, Valley edged Dartmouth 3-2, with Morgan Sawler, Alex Mosher and Sam Cadrain handling the scoring.

The other five Valley United Tier 1 youth teams - Valley is not fielding either a girls’ or a boys’ team at the U-18 level this summer - were finding the competition tough.

The U-14A girls were sixth in their division at 2-5-1. On July 1, Valley was edged 2-1 by Halifax City. Kelsey Jordan had the Valley goal.

The U-14B girls were fourth in a five-team division with a 1-6-1 record. In their July 1 game in Wolfville, Valley was blanked 2-0 by Suburban.

The Valley U-16 girls were ninth and last in their division, with two losses and three draws in five games. On June 21, Valley and Dartmouth played to a scoreless draw. Hannah Allen and Briana Hennigar shared the shutout.

The U-16 boys were fifth in a seven-team division with a 2-5-1 record. In action July 5, the boys were edged 3-2 by Dunbrack, with Angus Anthony and Coleman Hooper scoring the Valley goals.

It was a similar story in the premiership divisions, where Valley has both senior men’s and women’s teams in competition.

The Valley senior women were tied for fourth in their division at 2-5-2. In their most recent game, the women blanked Halifax County 2-0. Celia Cavadini and Kinsella Noseworthy-Smith had the Valley goals, and Emma Connell earned the shutout.

The Valley Kings Arms senior men were fifth in their six-team division at 2-7. In action July 5, Kings Arms was blanked 4-0 by Western Halifax Durty Nelly’s.
