Tricks or treats for Kermodes this weekend?

Published on

At least one Quest team will be making the trip to Kelowna for Provincials, as the Kermode women’s soccer team clinched last week. The women’s team rolled off five consecutive wins to start the season but injuries and a lack of scoring haunted them for the rest of the season. Despite the poor second half of the season, the women’s team also established a new school best, posting a final record of five wins, five losses and two ties. The Kermodes will next take on the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) Wolfpack in the first round of the provincials. The Quest University Kermodes men’s soccer team are out of the Pacwest playoff picture but head coach Jonas Worth thinks they might have a case to be included after a series of unusual events. When it was determined that the Douglas College Royals had used an ineligible player and all 10 of their previous results were erased, giving each opposing team a 1-0 victory which benefitted every team in Pacwest’s Group A but didn’t out as well for the Quest Kermodes who were bumped out of a Provincial spot when the last place Kwantlen Eagles were vaunted into third place because of the odd ruling. “In every other league Douglas would have been thrown out of the league for the entire year,” coach Jonas Worth said. “To turn the last place team [Kwantlen] into a playoff team isn’t fair.” With Provincials taking place Oct. 28 in Kelowna it is unlikely that the protest letters Worth is sending into Pacwest will help the Kermodes gain a spot in the postseason, the team established a new school best record. I know I talked about the Brittania Mining Museum last week, but I have to say, the idea of heading back into the tunnels the night before Hallowe’en definitely has its appeal!  There will be mask-making activities for kids and pumpkins to carve (limited numbers) on both Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Make the Britannia Mine Boo-seum your pre-Halloween destination. BC Mining Museum
