A rewarding inaugural season for the Niverville Rush U15 boys soccer team has come to a close. The 12-game regular season ended with eight wins, two losses, and two ties, which was good enough for a fourth-place finish out of 14 teams and a berth into the top-seeded division for the playoffs.

In the playoffs, the Rush squeaked out two hard-fought wins against Whyteridge, but then dropped two narrow losses to the talented Valley Gardens squad. Valley Gardens then went on to play the winner of the other pool, Charleswood, in the final.

The Rush added to a successful year with a second-place finish at a tournament in Fargo this past June, and they also had an undefeated run earlier in the season at the Manitoba Soccer Association’s festival in Stonewall.

Many players have since turned their attention to hockey and various high school sports, with a few continuing to play indoor soccer through the winter. The team would like to extend a special thanks to Brio Insurance, Niverville Chicken Chef, Sunova Credit Union, and WM Dyck and Sons for their gracious support which helped make the season possible.
