Halftime Extravaganza!

The Mid-Isle Soccer Club’s U13 Mariner Girls put on a heck of a show at the November 9th CCAA Nationals Semi-Final game, in front of hundreds of soccer fans!

WELL DONE, LADIES!

Even better –  the VIU Mariners won the game 6-1 to advance to the National Championship game!

 

Introducing TURF KITTY, the NEW MID-ISLE MASCOT!!

We couldn’t ask for a better representative of our Club than a big black-and-white cat that hangs out at Forrest Field. Therefore, WE ARE VERY PROUD TO INTRODUCE…

TURF KITTY!!!

T.K. (he wears #9, because nine lives) will pop up here and there at special Club events – you can even march with him in the Light Up Parade this year! Give him a high five when you see him!

U13 Mariner Girls Beat the Heat with Summer Treats!

Ringleader Kevin Kurylowich and the Mid-Isle U13 Mariner Girls worked their buns off at the recent Ladysmith Days Fun Fair at Aggie Field!! In just a few hours, the team’s hot dog sale raised over $850 towards their tournament fund, and the girls had a GREAT time representing our Club!

Many thanks to the team parents who pitched in, and a special thank you to Wendy Battie and the 49th Parallel Grocery store for the opportunity!

A Day of Adventure!

A great time was had by all 175 Mid-Isle and Storm players and parents who attended the Canadian Women’s National Team game against Mexico yesterday. Canada won 3-2 and four of those five goals were scored right in front of us. A lot of happy memories and inspirational moments for all who participated!
