On the ladies’ open, locals were able to put on a great show.

The Squamish Strikers played hard, making it to the semi-finals, but were eventually bumped off.

Ultimately, they took third place.

“They won every game before that — they blow up every game — but when it came to the semi-finals, they couldn’t do it,” Oreamuno said.


Fulcrum placed first in the ladies’ open, with the Goochie Gang following in second.

There was, however, a bright spot for Squamish women in the recreation division. Team Squamish United took first place in the ladies’ over-30 category, beating out the Chilliwack Wildcats, which came in second, and the bronze-winning Jaguars. As for the weather, it looked like the sun was smiling on Soccerfest this year. Despite a forecast of rain, there were some bright spots for the event.

“It was unbelievable luck and changing weather,” said Oreamuno. “It was pouring — I had to go home and change clothes because it was soaking, and then we wake up on Saturday with a cloudy day, no rain. And then Sunday it was the cream on top of the pie, it was a beautiful day...It was a really good weekend.”
