Seeding Sooke soccer

The soccer season has started and the teams are playing well

The season has kicked off with a fantastic start in the past two weeks of play.

Sandlot U4-U6 is packed with the wee ones trying to figure it all out with the help from Jennifer Royer-Collard, the Sandlot coordinator. She is looking for some older youth players to help coach the kids on Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m.  Contact info on website. The mini’s are all rocking their new teams with four in-house teams playing each other and two travelling U8 teams playing JDF.  The U9-U12 teams are looking like they are on their toes for the start of the season.

U13 Girls hammered Prospect Lake on Saturday 6-0 – Goals by Allana Garat, Brittney Homer, Sydney Cumming, Holly Conwright and  Jaylin Shaw.

U14 Girls annihilated Peninsula last week 8-0 and they battled Cowichan this past weekend and won 2-1. Goals scored by Emma Chalmers, Emma Lembcke, Faith Knoles, Makenna Franklin, Shae Yates and Grace Bishop.

U16 Girls beat Bays 4-2 last Thursday and slaughtered Gorge 6-0 on the weekend.

The U16 boys beat Gorge 7-1.  U17/18 Boys won 4-2.

Unfortunately at time of submitting this article we did not have all game statistics. Stay tuned next week for more soccer scores!

The adult teams are coming together with an over 30s women’s team, a Div 2 and Div 3 women’s team and an over 40s and Div 2 Men’s team.

Two rounds of seeding for U13-U17 teams left to determine which level these rocking Sooke teams will play for the regular season.

So far SSC is looking very good!

Teams still looking for players are U13 U16 and U17 girls as well as the Div 3 Women’s team. SSC is thrilled with Juan de Fuca Regional Director Mike Hicks’ announcement in last week’s paper regarding funding for a turf field. We hope the candidates running for mayor will make this necessity for our sports community a major priority in their campaigns.
