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.
