Royal Bay’s senior boys soccer team went into last week’s Island AA championship in Campbell River with promise, having done well in city league play.

The Ravens had a tough time against the up-Island competition, however, failing to win a match. The Ravens lost two pool games by a goal, 1-0 to Mill Bay’s Frances Kelsey and 2-1 to Mark Isfeld of Courtenay, and lost 3-0 to eventual champ Carihi, leaving Royal Bay tied for seventh overall.
