Soccer teams converge on Hardy for Aftershock event

A soccer tournament brings many players to Port Hardy

Over May 29-31 youth  North Island soccer players and their families converged on the playing fields at Port Hardy Secondary School for the Port Hardy Aftershock 2015 Tournament.

The all weekend soccer showdown had a large turnout, and the enthusiasm lasted until early Sunday evening. Games began Friday night and continued until the finals Sunday afternoon.

All games were seven aside and had two 25-minute halves. The round-robin format saw teams with a win gaining three points and a tie gaining one point. The players ranged in age from three to 17, and both girls and mixed teams competed.

Supporters filled a strong line of fold-up chairs along the edge of the playing field to watch game after game, and many children who had already played or were in between games gathered to check out other teams play. While both days began cloudy and chilly, they burned off into bluebird skies and perfect early summer soccer playing weather. A food station was set up to keep hungry players and their supportive parents well fed. Scores from the weekend games were as follows:
