It's show time for boys, girls soccer clubs

AMHERST - Proving to be formidable foes, the Amherst under 14 boys and girls soccer teams keep finding ways to win, or at least to tie.
Last night was no exception as the Fundy Dairy Queen United Boys played against Pictou in under 14 action.
The two teams are tied for first place in the league so both teams came out flying.
"It was an amazing game," United coach Rick Goodwin said. "Both teams played really well."
After the first half it was pictou with a 1-0 lead but at approximately five minutes into the second half Corey Zollner scored on a penalty shot, tying the game up at 1-1.
Soon after Pictou were rewarded a penalty shot of their own, but the shot was denied by the great goaltending of Cody McKellar.
McKellar made several great saves on the night including a point blank range shot that came not long after the penalty shot.
With the game ending in a 1-1 tie it has still not been determined who is the dominant team in the league.
Carter's Sports Cresting under 14 girls also played to a 1-1 tie last night with Paige Lewis scoring for Amherst.
The tie has the team ranked as one of the top teams in Highland Soccer League.
Last weekend was business as usual for both teams when they attended the Winsloe-West Royalty Soccer Tournament in P.E.I.
The boys won gold with a 5-2 win over the Celtics, a 6-0 win over the WWR Blues and a 1-1 tie in a game against Riverview that brought them to the championship game.
In the chmpionship game against Riverview, Fundy won by a score of 4-2.
In girls action last weekend, Carter's Sports Cresting went to the limit by bringing the championship game to penalty kicks. Unfortunatley they had to settle for the silver medal.
