This spring Weyburn played host to a number of soccer players who were trying out for the Provincial Soccer League. 

The PSL team was comprised of players from across the province, including two Weyburnites, Brennan and Carter. 

"It was a soccer team mixed between Moose Jaw, Weyburn, Yorkton, and Swift Current. We made one big team and we played teams around Saskatchewan," said Brennan. "It was very different. The competition was a lot different, much higher than it normally was."

It was the first year for the PSL team, with players from all four cities in the U17 category. Both Carter and Brennan noted that it was nice to play competitive soccer again.

"It had been a while," noted Brennan. "We didn't have enough players here in Weyburn so it was fun."

The PSL team saw some success during their regular season. 

"Just before playoffs we needed one win but we couldn't get that win so we just missed playoffs."

Following the PSL season, Brennan and Carter found themselves in a unique situation.

"PSL excludes you from provincials because you are actually supposed to be 'too good' for U17," said Coach Jason Roy. "So they got moved to the U19 division and then they were able to play provincials, which they dominated."

Brennan and Carter both joined the U19 Yorkton team and went on to win provincials, with Brennan noting that he only let in two goals during the tournament.

"The whole experience was definitely new, very fun and I hope I can do it again," he said.

"To play an age group above and to win provincials and dominate, it was really amazing," added Carter. 

Both players hope they can play PSL soccer next season and encourage any other local players looking to play competitive soccer to try out as well.
