Yesterday the intermediate Beaver Brae soccer team headed to Dryden for the Area tournament. Beaver Brae had 46 players and 3 teams in the tournament. Our young Broncos displayed a high level of class, both after wins and losses. They all performed extremely well, and one team made it all the way to the finals. After a dominant game by the Broncos, we tied 1-1 and unfortunately fell short in a shootout. All of our Broncos displayed a high level of talent, sportsmanship and class. The future looks bright for young athletes. Good job Broncos!
