The RDC Kings soccer squad saw their first action of the season Saturday facing the Edmonton Extreme U18 Tier I squad in a pair of exhibition games at RDC.
The Kings lost 4-0 in the opener and battled to a 3-3 tie in the second game.
Patrick Sweiger, Evan Foerster and Julius Abegar scored for RDC.
“We didn’t play well the first game, but they have a strong side and are peaking for their provincials,” said RDC head coach Steve Fullarton. “But then it was our first game and the new guys were nervous. The second game we were more relaxed and played much better and probably should have won.
“I also got a chance to see all the new guys and I was happy with what I saw.”
The Kings, who host the ACAC finals this season, host Grande Prairie in an exhibition game Aug. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at RDC before opening their schedule Sept. 8 in Lakeland. Their home opener is Sept. 15 against SAIT.
