Autobots kick some serious … soccer ball

The Sooke soccer U16 girls, the Autobots, went to Salt Spring Island on Saturday to play a LISA semi cup match.

The Sooke soccer U16 girls, the Autobots, went to Salt Spring Island on Saturday to play a LISA semi cup match, and boy, did those girls play. The team played with vision and heart.

Hailey Dimock from an assist by Tayler Bernard scored in the first minute of the match, putting the Autobots in the lead. The back line, Katija Pallot, Riley Mclean, Sydney Drysdale, Kiomi Yates, and Rachael Wiebe, were well organized and forceful. Salt Spring had chances to score but found it difficult to penetrate the back line; when they were successful, goalkeeper Hope Millard was there to make the saves.

The Autobots mid-fielders, Hailey Bryant, Maddy Chartier, Chloe Mitchell,  Morganne Orchard, worked well as a unit. The Autobots continued to have control of the field, with more opportunities to score which they did.

Tayler Bernard scored two goals with assists by Kat Pallot and Hailey Dimock.  Cassidy Logan scored two goals with assists by Chloe Mitchell and Tayler Bernard from a corner kick. Rachael Weibe scored Sookes sixth goal. Hope Millard had a shut out  in this match. The Autobots will meet JdF in the LISA Cup Final on February 15.
