Lisa Cup action for Sooke

Sooke soccer teams make excellent efforts in cup play

Round 1 of LISA cup took place this weekend for all 11 a- side teams except the U17/18 boys who continue their league play.

• U17/18 boys played JDF Sunday morning and with an unexpected slow start, the boys found their legs after being awarded a PK from the spot with a beautifully placed shot from Jake Dyer.

After that they kept their foot on the gas pedal and followed that up with another goal from Dyer, three from Ayden Ostropolski, Cort Harrison and Ben Holmes adding singles to round out the scoring. The shutout bid shared by Kyle Rodd and James Marx in goal was spoiled by a late PK from the spot awarded to JDF.

After the first round of five games, the boys are 5-0 with 34 goals for and 5 against. The defence continues to stand tall.

Coach Glenn Harrison

• Sooke U16 Boys dominated Cowichan 7-0 in first round of LISA cup.

Goals from Tie Boake, Taylor Cummings, Hagen Harold, a Hat trick from Matthew Miller, assists from Chris Berkeley, Hagen Harold, and Toren Harrison. Congratulations to Bobby Nex on outstanding goalkeeping and getting a shut out.

• U16 Girls won 3-1 over Cowichan in Round 1 of Lisa Cup.  Goals by Mariyha Dunn-Jones, Xayla Westgate and Cassidy Childs.

• Our U-15 boys took a commanding lead with their first LISA cup round, Lautaro Cepeda playing attacking mid-field opened up the scoring early in the first half. Right hand striker Andrew Rodd not to be out done fired a beautiful shot into the Gorge’s net from the 18 yard box 10 mins later. Riley Carter playing right midfield gained an attacking role and shot from the centre of the box to make it 3 to 0 finishing off the the first half.

Second half Gorge scored from a lofted ball beating our GK who made the mistake of playing too far out from Sooke’s goal, just could not recover in time. However, Andrew not satisfied with one goal attacked the Gorge net from inside the 18 yard box, five minutes left to play Lautaro playing left striker in this half made a beautiful shot that crossed Gorge’s goal line to finish the game with a 5 – 1 final!

Coach Rob Oyler

• U14 Girls fought a tough battle against Saanich Fusion and unfortunately lost 2-0 so they have been eliminated from LISA cup.  It wasn’t without a solid effort by all players who had to play most of the game without subs in the unexpected hot sun.

Shout out to their defense line Georgia Jackson, Sarah Lembcke, Sky Langdon, and Layla Martinez for stopping what may have been many more goals!

• U13 Girls won their first LISA Cup game vs Lakehill on Saturday 2-0. Both goals scored by Jaylin Shaw with assists by Marin Clarkston and Brittney Homer.

• U9 Boys played JDF on Saturday and won 3-2. Goals were scored by Briar Chandler, Chase Waldie and Gage Paquet.

“The Dolphins” are a U7/8  team that is playing very well, the girls are improving every game and should be unstoppable by the end of the season.

• Our last game against JDF was a shut out. Sophia Jonassen our new full-time goalie did not allow their team to score at times when they broke through the solid defensive wall that consisted of twins Lindsay and Sarah Patterson as well as Ruby Price and Sophie Constantinou.

The Dolphins scored many goals and it was hard to keep track of who scored the goals.

Awesome and deadly striker action was provided by Niya Clarkson (who scored at least two goals), Xanthe Evans, Ruby Price and Mischa Bartlett.

Success would not have been realized without the relentless midfield efforts of Shelby Hoffer and Annika Nielsen.

All in all an excellent team effort from a team that is rising to the top under coach Dennis Price.

Peter Jonassen Dolphins manager

League schedules come out this week.  After seeding, all 11 a side teams were placed in Silver, with the possibility of a couple to move up to gold.   Continue to shine bright Soooooooooooooooke!
