Kickers Narrowly Miss NVIRU Championship

Kickers Narrowly Miss NVIRU Championship

The Kickers qualified for the Provincial Championship after securing a spot in the NVIRU Championship game last fall. The top seeds from the fall and then the spring competition have a chance to play first for the Island Championship in the revamped Island 3rd division. After the Island Championship is decided both teams are off to the BC Championships as a top seed in both Tier A and B.

These teams have met numerous times in the Championship game over the last several years with mighty Valhallians from Victoria always managing to come out on top in very tight competitive games. As the Kickers managed to put a respectable effort in the finals time after time, the depth of the Valhallians bench seems to be the difference maker in the later stages of the encounters. Since winning their first NVIRU trophy in the spring of 2010, Velox has claimed it 6 times in the last 4 years.
