Sports Shorts: Morinville Ladies in baby trouble

by Jon Whittal-Williams

After several years of super success, Morinville Ladies are in “baby trouble” Two of the team have newborns and four more are expecting their own bundles of joy this side of October. Clearly, there is something special in our local water wells.

The ladies’ team was founded 13 years ago. They play in the St. Albert Women’s Soccer League in the summer and in the Edmonton (EDSA) in the winter. Historically they have been very successful, having won Division 2 once and Division 1 six times in their outdoor season. They have never finished lower than 3rd. Further, they won a Bronze medal at outdoor provincials as well as a 4th at indoor provincials. This year they won promotion to Division 2 for the upcoming indoor season.

The upshot is this: we are looking for experienced, committed players for the indoor season. The games will be on Tuesdays in Edmonton (rotating between the West, East and South centres). Practices are on Sundays in the Morinville Community High School gym.

If you are interested in playing, please call Jon at: 780-939-4825 or 780-245-4825. IF you leave a message, please speak clearly and leave a contact number. Alternatively, feel free to e-mail at
