It's wait til next year for Wildcats

Sady, there will be no provincial championships for the R.A. McMath Wildcats this season.

Another strong season on the high school senior boys' soccer pitch ended abruptly Tuesday, with the Wildcats dropping a shootout to the Vancouver College Fighting Irish in the district playdowns. The teams were tied 1-1 through regulation.

The Irish opened the scoring early in what McMath coach Mike Quinn described as "an exciting end to end game." McMath equalized late in the first half, with Luke Sewell scoring on a header after a terrific cross from captain Kyran James.

It was a sad ending for McMath, which won the Richmond league and compiled an overall record of 10 wins, two losses and a draw.

James, Andrew MacAskill, Marc Andre Hervieux, Floyd Achtzehnter, Ethan Vera, Bobby Bertram and Jason Roberts were all outstanding in the playdowns for McMath, which could have as many as 10 returning players next season.
