A gold medal isn't a bad way to start a new soccer season.

The U14 KEYSA Rovers did just that in a tournament in Nelson this past weekend, beating out three other teams in round robin to reach the final.

The Rovers opened the tournament with a 2-1 win over the Nelson Selects, before going up against their KSYSA regional rivals out of Castlegar—the Storm.

The Rovers managed to end that game with a 1-1 draw

The Rovers then drew the Creston Blitzz for their third match, and came out with a big  7-0 win.

That put their stamp on first place in their pool, which gave them an automatic berth in to the championship final.

For the tournament title, the Rovers went up against their rivals out of Castlegar again, and finished strong in a close game at a score of 3-2.
