St. Andrew’s Sabres set for single-A boys soccer provincials

After a season of second place finishes, the St. Andrew’s Sabres are ready to re-emerge atop the single-A boys high school soccer pyramid.

After a season of second place finishes, the St. Andrew’s Sabres are ready to re-emerge atop the single-A boys high school soccer pyramid.

The Glenlyon Gryphons edged the Sabres last week 2-1 at GNS in the A Island championships.

Playoffs are currently underway in the city for the crossover A, AA and AAA Colonist Cup and Colonist Shield. But the Sabres are already looking ahead to the 16-team A provincials, Nov. 6 to 8 in Abbotsford.

“We hope to get a chance to face GNS again,” said Sabres coach Mark Cristante.

Speculation is Immaculata and GNS are the top single-A teams going into the provincial tourney. “GNS will probably be ranked No. 1 as the defending champs. (St. Andrew’s) is likely in the top four as they won it in 2011 and were second in 2012.

“We have a nice mix of Grade 9, 10, 11 and 12 students and one Grade 8, and are hoping to build on this for years to come,” Cristante said.
