Locals Excel in Europe

Two Maple Ridge soccer players were part of a team that enjoyed success in European competition.

Excel Soccer won the B pool at the San Marino Cup – the largest Italian youth soccer tournament for boys and girls, featuring 75 Teams and 2,000 participants from 18 countries.

After finishing round-robin play with a record of one win, one tie and one loss, Excel Soccer advanced to the B pool where they met Noga Boys from the U.S. in the final.

Excel Soccer dominated the match, and Isiah Smith from Maple Ridge was one of the scorers. Local Luke Warmerdam was also on the Valley-based team.

The players got to train at the Italian National Training Centre, and watch the World Cup final in Montecatini.
