The Sooke U15 girls’ soccer team won the Silver League championship on Saturday with a 7-1 victory over U16 Peninsula in Sidney.

The first half was a nail biter as both teams battled to get the first goal.

Striker Faith Knoles had many shots as midfielders Grace Bishop and Alex Peters continually fed her the ball. She finally knocked one in to put Sooke up 1-0 at the half.

Great passing and team work saw Knoles get her second, then third goal and her first-ever hat trick.

The flood gates were opened.

Next came a goal from Alexa Wright then a crazy cross from Bishop found its way in. Peters got a beauty chance and finally knocked one in and finally another sweet shot by Peters to complete the rout.

Once again Sooke was led by outstanding goalkeeping from Ella Dennett.

The Sooke squad was undefeated this year.
