River Rats impressive in win over JdF

The Rats made a great comeback with a score of 4-1.

The Sooke River Rats were impressive in a 4-1 come from behind victory against the Juan de Fuca Cung in minor soccer action on Feb. 6.

The first half was an even battle with JdF scoring one goal.

In the second half, the River Rats went to work, dominating the play and setting the stage for Sophia Hallas to score three goals.

Xanthe Evans powered her way past the JdF defenders to score Sooke’s fourth and final goal of the game. Outstanding play from Maja Olcen and Niya Clarkson plus a full team effort helped the River Rats gain the victory.

The River Rats will host a bottle drive Feb. 20 to help raise money for warm up jackets. The fundraiser will be held during and after their game against Saltspring Island. The bottle drive is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., across the street from the soccer clubhouse.
