Renn Cook and Ivan Boutet coached the Creston Blitzz’s U-16 boys to a gold medal victory this weekend in the Sam Steele Days tournament in Cranbrook on the weekend.

“We beat the U-15 Fernie United team 1-0 in the final game,” said Cook. “It was very encouraging to see the team pull together and work hard over the course of the soccer season. They improved immensely.”

Due to the team’s poor start in the season, it was dropped down a level to U-15, giving the advantage it needed to get into the final.

“It was a great weekend of good sportsmanship and effort,” said Cook.
