Soccerfest high school tournament underway

Teams from all over Saskatchewan taking part in annual high school season kickoff event

The start of a new high school girls soccer season always brings with it a bit of mystery -- just who will be the teams to watch, who will show massive improvement and who might have taken a step back?

One way to sort all that out is a whole lotta games in a short span of time early in the season.

And that's where Soccerfest comes in.

The 14-team tournament is currently underway at Sunningdale and VLA Fields in Moose Jaw and will once again feature some of the top high school teams in the province.

Action kicked off Friday morning, with first-round action seeing a host of lopsided results: Regina O'Neill defeated Estevan 12-0, Regina LeBoldus downed Regina Sheldon Williams 13-0, defending Moose Jaw high school league champion Swift Current defeated Notre Dame 12-0, Yorkton Regional edged the Vanier Spirits 4-1, Prince Albert Carlton rolled to a 10-0 win over Yorkton Sacred Heart, the Central Cyclones defeated Regina Luther 4-0 and Prince Albert St. Mary's picked up a 7-0 victory over the Peacock Tornadoes.

The Cyclones would be unable to keep their run going, as they fell 7-2 to St. Mary's in the quarter-final, while Peacock advanced to the consolation semifinal with a 2-1 win over Luther. Swift Current, meanwhile took a 4-2 win over LeBoldus to advance to the semifinal against O'Neill.

Here are a selection of photos from quarter-final acton between Central and St. Mary's as well as the Consolation side bout between Peacock and Luther.

Games continue all day Saturday, with the championship final slated for 3:30 p.m. at Sunningdale.
