Sooke Soccer held a goalkeeper and striker clinic last Tuesday with two amazing coaches from Victoria, Shel Brodsgaard and Jamie (JJ) Fales.  Players from U10-U18 participated in the clinics.  Just under 80 kids attended despite the chilly winds.  SSC would like to thank Shel and JJ for coming to Sooke to teach our kids some new moves.  SSC would also like to  thank Tim Satterford for arranging the clinics.  We plan to hold more clinics in the upcoming months.

The Sooke Dolphins U8 girls had a frosty Saturday morning game against JDF Saunders and pulled out a 2-1 win. These girls are getting better with each passing game, they have a home game next Saturday Nov 22 at 11 am on Field #1

Come on out and cheers these superstars on.

Peter Jonassen – Coach

This weekend was a tough game with our U16 boys fighting hard against U16 boys Gorge. A lovely goal from Matthew Miller on a PK, outstanding Goal tending from Bobby Nex and our brand new player Rylin Wilsher made some great saves in the second half unfortunately our boys lost to Gorge 2-1.

Michelle Berkely – Coach

Sooke U-15 Boys arrived at the JdF Field 3 with their team at full strength, with focus, and a lot of determination to take home a win. Nick Seabrook opened up the scoring with a free kick through JdF’s wall placing the ball top right corner 8 mins into the game start. In the 2nd half Andrew Rodd assisted by Lautaro Cepeda made no mistake placing the ball behind JdF’s keeper. JdF answered back though with 2 goals. With the score now even, the remaining minutes were nail biting but with 5 mins left, Nick Seabrook with a well placed pass from Andrew Rodd once again found the back of the net. Final Sooke 3 over JdF 2, nicely done Sooke!

Rob Oyler – Coach

Sooke Div3 Woman hosted Ladysmith for a Sunday noon kick-off at Fred Milne. Ladysmith ladies came on the pitch fast and furious determined to gain the lead early, they were successful finding the back of Sooke’s goal with 3 goals in the first half. Sooke ladies were not about to let this get them down though, coming onto the pitch  in the 2nd half determined to fight back, and fight back they did playing in Ladysmith’s defending third forcing them to make mistakes, this drew a PK where Carymn Wright made no mistake and put the ball behind the Ladysmith’s keeper. Remainder of the game Sooke kept the ball in their offensive midfield zone but ran out of time. Ladysmith left the pitch with a win, but they had to work hard for it, nicely done Sooke!!

Rob Oyler – Coach

U14 Boys tied with Bays United with their single goal scored by Aiden Parkin.
