Bruins in top spot after spring soccer season

Call it World Cup inspiration. The Bourkevale Bruins have been tearing up the U11 boys soccer league this spring, posting an impressive 9-1-0 record to secure 1st place in the 10-team St. Charles Soccer Association league.
The team finished the spring session with two straight wins giving them 27 points, well ahead of R.A. Steen's second-place showing of 19 points. The Bruins' offence has been explosive, netting a league-leading 29 goals in 10 games. The team has allowed only eight goals this season, giving them a goals-for/goals-against of 21, tops in the league.
Although the Bruins don't play their home games at Bourkevale, they're a regular fixture at the club's south-end rink where Bruins' coach Rob Dorbolo runs the team through drills and training, rain or shine. Devin Dorbolo is seen here preparing for the team's last few games of the spring session.
The Bruins will resume their schedule in the fall, including a playoff season that's sure to be a thriller. Check our website in the fall to find out where you can go to cheer on the Bruins during the playoffs.

Bullets field an explosive team this year

The Bourkevale Bullets are enjoying an outstanding season in 2010 with 13 local talented players. Many of the players — turning either 7 or 8 this year — have been together since the early years when they first kicked the ball around at ages 4 and 5.
Head coach Mark Saunders is joined by assistant coach Cameron Iwanusiw and team manager Mel Saunders, making up the team's dedicated volunteer coaching staff.
Most of the team's games have been on the road in May. But the Bullets play their final games in June Mondays and Wednesdays around 6:15 p.m. at Bourkevale's mini soccer pitches right at the club. Get your lawn chairs out and come and cheer on your local players.
It doesn't get more fun than this!
