Yukon’s high school soccer season started and finished this weekend with Vanier taking the Grade 8/9 title and FH Collins taking the 10/11/12 division.

The spirited Vanier junior squad went undefeated over five games, beating FH in the semi-final and kicking its way into a shootout with Porter Creek in the final.

Vanier goalie Kurtis Hills made a few key saves in the shootout, and his team came away with the gold with a 3-2 result.

Porter Creek took the silver and FH Collins’ B-squad took the bronze.

In the sparsely populated senior division, it was FH Collins’ A-squad against FH Collins’ B-squad (which fielded a number of Grade 8 players), with a serious wind pushing the ball around the field.

The A-squad dominated, winning by a 5-2 margin.

The B-squad took the silver, and Vanier stomped Porter Creek 9-1 in the bronze medal match.

AIDS Walk for Life 2007

When:  September 19th, 2007

Where: Elijah Smith Building, Main Street, noon

The AIDS Walk for Life is Canada’s most important national fundraising and awareness event for the community-based AIDS movement.

It has raised $25.8 million and hosted half a million participants since it’s inception in 1996.

With approximately 61,000 Canadians living with HIV/AIDS and no cure or vaccine currently available, action is still needed.

This year’s Walk will help to increase awareness of HIV/AIDS in Canada and raise much-needed funds to support local programs and services benefiting people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in Whitehorse.

Blood Ties Four Directions Centre is inviting members of the community to help make this year’s event a success by fundraising, making a donation, or becoming a volunteer.

Registration opens at 11:30 a.m. and the Walk starts at noon.

There will be refreshments, door prizes and prizes for the top fundraisers. Pledge forms can be picked up at Blood Ties office on Baxter Road.
