Several Sooke Soccer Club youth teams played in Lower Island Soccer Association (LISA) Cup semifinals last weekend.

The U13 girls played in Juan de Fuca  were up 2-1 until the last few minutes of play when JdF knocked a couple quick goals in to win 3-2.  Coach Rob Oyler said it was a very exciting game that could have gone either way and was proud of his young team’s efforts.

A well-matched game with many chances on both sides ended in a 1-0 win for Sooke with Faith Knoles getting the lone goal despite hitting the crossbar on an earlier penalty kick. Coaches Laura Lockhart and Dave Peters are “astounded” at their team’s overall “performance and teamwork.” The Wildcats remain undefeated and in first place.
