After suffering a disappointing defeat in the semifinals, the Cariboo Hill Chargers rebounded to take third place at the B.C. AA high school soccer championships at Burnaby Lake West Sports Complex this week.

The Chargers edged Vancouver’s Notre Dame Jugglers 2-1 Wednesday morning to claim third spot. Justin Dhaliwal and James Szabo scored Cariboo’s goals.

They were relegated to that match after losing 1-0 in the semifinals to Port Coquitlam’s Archbishop Carney Stars on a goal as time was running out in regulation Tuesday afternoon. It was the only goal Cariboo goalkeeper Juggi Dosanjh allowed in five games which earned him honours as the tournament’s top goalie.

Dhaliwal and teammate Kirk Menezes had three goals each in the tournament tying them with five others for the Golden Boot.

The Chargers rolled through the round-robin portion of the 16-team tournament winning all three of their games. They began on Monday by blanking the Sa-Hali Sabres from Kamloops 3-0. They followed that up in the afternoon with another shutout defeating Delta’s Sands Scorpions 2-0. The completed the round-robin sweep by downing St. Michael’s University School Blue Jags from Victoria 2-0.

Okanagan-Mission Huskies won the tournament by beating Archbishop Carney 2-1 on penalty kicks in the final.
