The Duncan Christian School Chargers punched their ticket to the provincial single-A senior boys soccer championships next month by finishing second at the Island tournament at the Cowichan Sportsplex last week.
In the 1-0 semifinal win over St. Andrew’s that locked up a top-two slot and a provincial berth, the Chargers got stellar goalkeeping from Vincent Fernandez while Ben Henry broke a scoreless tie midway through the second half.
With their place at provincials already guaranteed, the Chargers finished the tournament with an 8-0 loss at the hands of the defending B.C. champs from Glenlyon Norfolk in the final.
Rounding out the field were St. Andrew’s in third, Dwight School Canada in fourth, and the Cowichan Valley Open Learning Cooperative in fifth.
Fernandez, Henry and Hosang Kim were named to the all-star team from DCS, while Roy Sumimoto represented Dwight, and Dylan Thomas was selected from CVOLC.
