Sooke Riptide girls wins LISA Cup

Defeat Juan de Fuca in overtime

The Sooke U13 Riptide Silver girls team won the LISA Cup on Saturday defeating Juan de Fuca in a shootout.

Both teams battled the cold, rain, wind in a back and forth game that ended 0-0 after regulation play.

Riptide defenders Amy Hueston, Sadie Liprot and Madeline Stone played strong on defense in the first half. Forward Shelby Wilson had two shots on goal. Midfielders Olivia Lennox, Hana Beaty and Karrissa French battled hard limiting Juan de Fuca’s scoring chances.

With time winding down in the second half, Keeva Richards came on strong, just missing on a great shot. Makenna Whitten was robbed by the fingertips of the Juan de Fuca keeper on a shot that looked to be the winning goal, sending the game to a shootout.

Whitten scored first to start the shootout, followed by a couple of great saves by keeper Abbi Chalmers. Chloe Clarkston and Louisa Ralph both scored setting up Chalmers to make the final save for the win.
