It was a long season: games every Saturday (rain or shine), cold mornings, and a soccer field that by the end of the season was mostly mud. Although all of our teams performed admirably this season, NAYA managed to score the final win as our Fall Champions. The final game was incredible! Rain from the sky as NAYA and Vernon faced off for the championship title and bragging rights for the season. Vernon played hard and put all their effort into closing NAYA's lead, but despite their commendable performance NAYA is our League Champion. Congradulations NAYA!
It should be noted that Jackson and Parkrose played an equally intense and exciting game that went into overtime and penalty kicks. Thank you to all our teams (NAYA, Parkrose, Jackson, and Vernon), and to our tremendous coaches (Edison Cabrera, Brad Francis, Kristian Larson, and Kevin Elton)!
The winner of this season's Coach of the Year Award is Kevin Elton. Kevin is the coach of Vernon School's soccer team, and was nominated by members of his team for the Coach of the Year Award. As a volunteer, Kevin has dedicated much of his free time to coaching and mentoring the players from Vernon School.
