District Cup play downs started this weekend for many teams.  Next weekend is semi finals and then after Spring Break SSC hosts District Cup Finals Mar 28/29.

The U9 boys team #2 participated in the PLSC Tournament. They lost their first 2 games but managed to tie the last game.

U14 girls played the top team in their league Bays United at home.  This team has scored many goals on us this year so the Wildcats wanted to shut them down.  A lucky couple of shots by Bays got them ahead 2-0 late in first half.  Many chances by Sooke but their keeper was pretty quick to the ball.  A disallowed goal by Sarah Lembcke due to a handball in the box discouraged the Wildcats but they kept up the pressure til the end.  A sweet chance for Sarah Lembcke on left wing from a wicked cross from Grace Bishop in the middle gave Sarah the opportunity to beat their last defender and score her first (really second) goal of the season!  Way to go Striker Rah Rah Sarah!  End result was 3-1 for Bays but the Wildcats played a stellar game.

Sooke Girls U13 played Saturday in the District Cup quarter finals against Lakehill and came out winning 4-0. It was an exciting game and all the girls played great! Goals were scored by Holly Conwright assisted by Brittney Homer, Allana Garat assisted by Marin Clarkston, Sydney Cumming assisted by Allana Garat and Alexa Wright assisted by Marin Clarkston.

Sooke also played a make-up game against Saanich on Sunday and won that game 1-0. It too was an exciting game with great efforts by all the girls. Sooke’s goal was scored by Jaylin Shaw unassisted.

Manager Carleen Dennett & Coach Jay Wright

Sooke U-15 Boys were at home this week-end hosting the Bays United team, Sooke opened up the scoring 20 minutes into the game with Andrew Rodd finding the back of BU net. Marc Black playing striker for the first time this season proved he was more than capable and put the ball behind the BU keeper 35 minutes into the first half.

Sooke continued to hold the ball in the BU end with good passing and scored goal number 3 with a set-up from Nick Seabrook to Stuart Armitage-Smith who put a well placed ball into the back of BU net. The second half BU put the pressure on Sooke and were rewarded with a goal, but it did not come easy for them.

Outstanding goal keeping by Joey Seeburger coupled with Sooke’s back line with Riley Carter at center D flanked by Ben Dinney and Garrett Grant was too much for BU with the game ending 3 to 1 in favour of Sooke. Nicely done, it was a good day in soccer for Sooke!

Coach Rob Oyler

The Sooke U17  Autobots  played the first round  for the district cup,  coming away with a big win at home against JDF U17 girls.  Goal keeper Hope Millard came away with a well earned shut out.  Defenders  Rachael Weibe, Katija Pallot,  Kiomi Yates  and Sydney Drysdale,  with Jaime Laffontaine  all played strong as a unit.

Striker Taylor Benard scored the first goal in the 10th minute of the match to start Sooke’s lead in the match.  Five minutes later striker  Cassidy Logan earned Sooke’s second  goal.  Mid fielders  Chloe Mitchell,  Riley McLean, Hailey Dimock,   Cheyenne  Williamson,  Hailey Bryant  worked hard supporting the back line and feeding the strikers,  a turning point in the match was when JDF was awarded a PK and goal keeper Hope Millard made a great save.

The  Autobots played with determination and vision for 90 minutes.  Sooke earned their third goal in the second half,  from mid fielder Chloe Mitchell with the assist by Taylor  Benard.  The Autobots advance to the semi finals,  with their goal of playing in the District Cup finals which Sooke  Soccer will be hosting on  behalf of Lower Island  Soccer scheduled for March 28 and 29 at Fred Milne Park.

Coach Wendy Cole

Sooke Jaggers 0/30 B  played their second Cup game on Sunday against a well skilled squad, Salt Spring O/30 B at Fred Milne Park,  coming away with a loss.  Player of the match,  Sooke   goal keeper Teresa Willman,  was amazing with outstanding saves.  Defenders  Holly Hamilton,  Pauline Topham,  Hillary Childs and Colleen Lembecke worked hard as a unit.  Mid fielders Glyse Clarkston,  Kerri Alexander,  Trina Clauston,  Emma Taylor  and Ruby F. tried to contain  Salt Spring,  Strikers Heather Frazer and Shannon Beahen had some  great efforts to score.  Great effort was given by all,  Salt Spring won the match 4-0.

Coach Wendy Cole

U15/16 girls beat Cowichan in a  4-0 game.  U17/18 boys won 6-0 vs Saanich.   U17/18 girls won 3-0 vs JDF.  Way to shut em down Sooke!  These teams all go onto semi finals next week.
