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

Coach Michelle Berkeley
