Alves, winners of the storied soccer silverware the past two years, will have the opportunity to make it three consecutive titles on Sept. 13 when they meet the North Enderby Timber FC of the North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League in the final at Mission Sportsfields. N.E.T. received a free pass into the championship when FBFC of Kelowna forfeited its scheduled semifinal match on Sunday.
