How the ball rolls: Sooke soccer

Soccer game action on the fields in Sooke this past week

The weather stymied soccer for Sooke this weekend at Fred Milne, but a few teams still got to play away.

The U13 Girls played this weekend on Salt Spring in the LISA Cup semi finals.  At the end of regulation it was a 3-3 tie.  The game was decided in a shoot out which our girls unfortunately came out on the losing end of.  This was their first shoot out experience as a team.

Amazing job by all but a special shout out to Sydney Cumming who stepped up and played goal the entire game, as all the girls usually take turns in goal.  She was stellar in net and gave our team a chance to that game to a shoot out.

Great job Tidalwaves!

Carleen Dennett – manager

The U14 girls saw Bays United for the third week in a row.  We wanted revenge and we certainly thought we were going to get it after two amazing goals in the first half to be up 2-0.  First goal was assisted by Layla Martinez to Faith Knoles who continues a long awaited scoring streak!

The second goal was from a throw in from Emma Chalmers, who then had the ball passed back to her and she sent in a wicked cross to find Layla Martinez in front of the net with an amazing header goal to pop it in past the GK. Unfortunately the second half Bays came out with a vengeance and quickly tied it up.  Despite a valiant effort and a few more chances, Sooke ended up losing 4-2.  The bitter sweet lessons we have learned so far this season are surely upping our game and with only four games left in regular league play, we plan on playing our hearts out!

Laura Lockhart – coach

The U14 Boys handed Cowichan their second loss of the season in their LISA Cup semi-final game on Sat., Jan. 24th in Duncan.  Max Hadrich scored early on to put Sooke ahead, but Cowichan tied it up and they went to half time 1-1.  Coming out strong in the second Simon Herold found the back of the net and Max scored another, putting Sooke ahead 3-1.

Cowichan rallied a late comeback attempt scoring in the last four minutes of play.  A thrilling 3-2 win assisted by the teams solid defensive line and goalkeeping.  The boys advance to the LISA Cup Final on Feb. 14th at UVIC.

Cherie Duncan – manager

Unfortunately both the U15 and U16 boys were unable to play in their LISA Cup Semi Final game and will have to reschedule.

The U16 girls beat Saanich 2-0 in their LISA Cup Semi Final game on Saturday.  The team will now advance to the LISA Cup Finals.

Coaches Dela Purdy and Xayla Westgate

Next club meeting will be held Tuesday,  Jan 27 at 7:30 p.m.
