One last kick at the Games

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The long weekend will be the final chance for the city's best young soccer players to try their luck at taking the next step toward the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

The NWT Soccer Association will be hosting the third and final identification camp at St. Joe's Field beginning on Friday. It's open to male and female players born between 1999 and 2002.

The camp will be a mixture of intrasquad games and technical practices happening throughout the weekend and it will all wrap up on Sunday afternoon.

The best of both genders will be chosen to move ahead to the final selection camp in September, which will also be held in Yellowknife.

The tradition continues

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The Elks Stars of Destiny are busy putting the finishing touches on their annual shin dig down at Fritz Theil Park this weekend.

It's the annual Suds Cup slo-pitch tournament and it will bring together teams from the city to play in the fun event.

Play will happen throughout the weekend with the playoffs and finals on Sunday afternoon.

No luck for Team Canada

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Kyle Baillie and Team Canada suffered yet another heartbreaker of a loss on the rugby pitch.

The Canucks, which featured the Yellowknife-born Baillie on its squad, took on Italy in Toronto on Sunday and, just like the Rugby World Cup meeting between the two teams last year, Italy managed to squeak out the win, 20-18.

Canada did have an 18-17 lead late in the second half but Italy scored on a penalty to take the lead for good in the 72nd minute.
