Soccer’s Autobotts advance to finals

Sooke U16 Autobotts came away with a big win against Bays United to advance to the Lower Island District Cup finals.

On Saturday March 8,  the Sooke  U16 Autobotts  came away with a big win against  Bays United to advance to the Lower Island District Cup finals.  The Autobotts faced the challenge with weather playing a factor in the match.

Autobotts had  opportunities to score in the first half,  the girls just could not find the net. Bays United pressed hard throughout the match,  and at half time it was scoreless.  Sooke got their first goal at the 55 minute mark, scored by forward Tayler Benard and assisted by Hailey Dimock and Chloe Mitchell.

Bays pressed hard,  challenging defenders Katija Pallot, Riley Mclean, Kiomi Yates and Sydney Drysdale.  Goalkeeper Hope Millard kept her composure and made some great saves.  Mid fielders Rachael Wiebe,  Chloe Mitchell,  Morganne Orchard,  Sarah Ehman and Hailey Bryant worked the ball hard,  feeding forwards Hailey Dimock and Taylor Bernard.

Bays were able to penetrate the defence, score, and tie up the match late in the second half in regulation time.  With it being a cup game—and tied—the match had to go into extra time. Two 10-minute halves were played. Sooke pushed hard, the game went end to end. Sooke was able to score in the last minute of the match with a goal by Taylor Benard with an assist by Hailey Dimock.

The match certainly was a nail biter, with the team advancing to the finals. The Soccer District Cup finals will be hosted by  Sooke Soccer during the week end of March 29/30.  There will be lots of soccer action at Fred Milne that weekend, as the club has five teams (U14, U15 and U16 boys, and U15 and U16 girls) in the District Cup Finals.
