Sooke Soccer Club kicking it up!

The latest on the soccer games played by Sooke teams

U13 girls The Sooke Tidalwaves won a hard fought battle Saturday taking the win 2-1 over Cowican Valley. The Tidalwaves defense was outstanding! Goals were scored by Brittney Homer (unassisted) and Allana Garat assisted by Brittney Homer.

Carleen Dennett, manager

Our Sooke U-15 boys headed up Island with the odds already not in their favour as they had to face the Cowichan Valley U-16 boys with only nine players. Playing short handed is always a tough go made more so with the opposition having several spares allowing them to get fresh legs on the pitch. Nevertheless our Sooke team put on a brave face and took on the job. Nick Seabrook opened up the scoring for Sooke in the first half coming in from right field and kicking a beautiful ball past CV’s goalkeeper. Sooke went into the the second half with two goals against.

Not to be deterred though as Andrew Rodd accepted a pass from Garrett Grant and turned and went towards CV’s goal making no mistake in placing the ball into CV’s net. Shortly afterwards Andrew Rodd was fed a solid pass from Nick Seabrook. Again Andrew had no problems in knowing where to place the ball behind CV’s keeper. Good effort by all on Sooke playing short handed with a final score of 6-3 in favour of CV.

Coach Rob Oyler

 

U16 Boys had another good game, this one was action packed with the end result being a 4-1 win for our Shredders.  We got 2 goals from Hagen Herald with an assist from Marley Pasichnyk then 2 goalsfrom  Taylor Cummings with 2 beautiful assists from Chris Berkeley.

Coach Michelle Berkeley

 

Sooke Autobots, U17 girls played Gorge at home,  0-0 at half time.  Gorge scored 2 goals, Sooke battled back to tie up the match.  First goal  by Hailey Dimock,  assist by Tayler Bennard.  Minutes to go Sooke got their second goal by Sarah Ehman assisted by Dimock.
