Bantam girls see deserved win

Sooke's Bantam girls played a very tight game against JDF and won with a narrow victory of 1-0.

On a cold Sunday morning, the Sooke Bantam girls were playing against JDF for a second time in one week. It was a very intense game and the Sooke girls left with a tight victory, 1-0. It proved to be a great shut-out for the goalie Michele Lacombe.

In the first period, a beautiful goal from Nadia Kendall (#10), passed to her from  Olivia Carello (#17) and Morgan Couture (#11).

The Sooke team dominated play in the JDF side of the rink pretty much the whole game. A strong defence kept the JDf girls out of the Sooke zone, and the forwards were very aggressive in their play.

“It was nice to see all the teams showing up, playing hard and playing as a team,” said coach Steve Couture. “After a loss last weekend against them, it was nice to get a win today and every girl played a very good game. I’m very pleased with what I saw today…. Good job everyone!”
