The Kingcome Wolves men's soccer team won the championship and several all-star trophies at last weekend's Totem Tournament in Victoria.

Kingcome claims Totem tournament title

The Kingcome Wolves men's soccer club claimed the championship of the Totem Invitational Tournament in Victoria over Easter Weekend.

The Kingcome Wolves men’s soccer club struck again on the South Island, claiming the championship of the Totem Invitational Tournament in Victoria over Easter Weekend.

A team with highly skilled players took to the pitch on this past weekend to show their pride and prestige for Kingcome Inlet, a small remote community located east of Port Hardy on the mainland.

The tourney was also dedicated to the memory of longtime fan Elsie “Auda” Willie, a mother, grandmother, and aunty to a lot of the players on the team who recently passed away.

“We played very hard for her,” said Mateo Kostering, the tournament’s Most Valuable Player. “She was the backbone of our team, always cheering from the sidelines. Every time we won, she would hug the whole team and tell us how proud she was.”

Kingcome was hit hard with a flood in 2010 when most of the homes were damage by the deluge. It is uplifting to the community when their football team wins.

The Wolves played three games to get into the final, posting wins over the Alert Bay Reds, Chehalis, and the Saanich Braves.

In the final, the Wolves were pit against the Campbell River Goldenwings and the Wolves came out on top with a score of 3-0.

Wolves veteran Randy Bell received Most Valuable Defense. Henry Nelson and Corey Swain received All Star awards. Blaze Roberts received Most Offensive Player.

The Kingcome Wolves would like to thank the all communities for their support, and are already looking forward to the next soccer tournament Mother’s Day weekend in Duncan.
