The Ridge Meadows Knights kicked off another season of community football over the weekend, with the club’s annual Knights of the Round Tournament.

The event was played out for atoms, pee wee and junior bantam teams at Samuel Robertson Technical.

“As the first organized scrimmages most teams face this season, the tournament was a success in accomplishing exactly what it was supposed to do. All teams at every level improved their play and performance with every game,” said Knights president Mark Ogloff. “We are proud of all our teams, and how the players performed in the intense heat of the weekend.”

The hometown teams also won some honours. Meadow Ridge Gold and Blue Atom teams finished in first place and second place respectively in a five-team division that included teams from North Delta, North Surrey and Royal City.

The pee wee Knights Blue and Gold teams finished second and third respectively, and the junior bantam teams were at the bottom of their five-team division, which was won by North Surrey.

The only Knights team not in action was coach Ogloff’s midgets. The organization will not have a bantam team this year, due to a lack of numbers. With seven teams, it is still considered  healthy organization.

The community football regular season begins for the locals on Aug. 30, and the Knights home opener will be Saturday, Sept. 6 when all.
