MANITOULIN – It was a cold, wet and windy day for the annual Island Junior Soccer Tournament in Mindemoya, but the Charles C. McLean Colts fought hard and played their best to take home first and second place in the A division, with the Little Current Coyotes winning the B division championship.
The C.C. McLean A team, coached by Laura Hagman, won all five games and brought the trophy back to Gore Bay. This team worked together and played hard every game.
