Sooke Soccer News: How the ball rolls

A quick run-down of all the Sooke soccer teams and their standings.

Sooke dominated this weekend at home in the sweet sunshine for the last week of league play.  Next up are District Cup play downs starting this weekend with the finals being held in Sooke March 28/29.

The two U9 boys  teams played each other and it ended up in a 0-0 tie.  A fabulous and fast paced game!

Manager Jackie Chandler

Sooke Girls U13 Tidalwaves crashed through Fred Milne Park on Saturday afternoon taking a 3-2 victory over Saanich Fusion. It was great to see the team end their final game of the regular season with such great team work, patience with the ball and amazing passing. Extra shout out to Sydney Cumming and Emma Muttitt for their great saves in net as well as their strong plays on the field.

Our defense played great and was anchored by Brittany Vince who is always rock solid. Great battles up front by Marin Clarkston, Allana Garat, Aila Evans, Holly Conwright and Jaylin Shaw. Alexa Wright scored a great goal from the striker position and Brittney Homer knocked in two goals from the top of the 18.

Manager Carleen Dennett

The U14 girls played their final league game vs JDF at home this Saturday.   The Wildcats dominated the entire game and despite many chances could not finish with one in the net.  Game ended in a 0-0 tie.  Great way to end league play with a shut out for GK Ella Dennett with the entire team working hard to defend and put on the pressure.  Despite a tough season, these girls have persevered and have really clicked as a team and it shows in their efforts on the field.  Bring on the Cup!

Coach Laura Lockhart

U14 Boys finished their regular season with a tie game vs Salt Spring. SS came out strong, scoring a few nice ones for a score of 3-0 at the half.  The second half Sooke found their feet and Zach Miller got them on the board when he drilled one into the corner of the net, off a pass from Gavin Duncan.  Sooke’s second goal was a slow-motion ball tipped in by Max Hadrich, that rolled in just out of reach of the goalkeeper.  The tying shot was a beautifully placed penalty kick taken by Simon Herold.  Literally the most nonchalant confident PK ever seen by spectators!  The boys are looking forward to playoffs and making a run for the District Cup.

Manager Cherie Duncan

The Sooke U-15 Boys hosted by Jdf U-15 opened up the scoring early in the game at 19 minutes of play with Riley getting the ball past the JdF keeper with a well placed assist from Jacob. With Sooke keeping the ball in JdF’s end the second Sooke goal came at 31 minutes of play with a beautiful pass from Riley to Andrew who made no mistake in finding the back of the JdF net.

The second half found JdF hungry for goals fighting hard and being successful at keeping the ball in our end. JdF opened up the scoring in the second half with their first PK that was blocked by an outstanding save by our keeper Joey,  JdF made no mistake with the rebound that found the back of Sooke’s net. JdF fought hard to keep the ball in our end, being rewarded with another PK where they made no mistake putting the ball past our keeper. Sooke worked hard successfully getting the ball back up in JdF’s end, but could not find the back of Jdf’s net ending the game with a 2-2 final.

Coach Rob Oyler

 

Saturday afternoon the Sooke Silver U16 boys played JDF silver U16 boys, it was an awesome day for a game.

This game was action packed from the start with our Sooke boys prevailing goals from Taylor, Matthew, and Chris. Assists from Matthew, Hagen and Chris. Final score Sooke 5 JDF 3.

To all the U16 Sooke boys it’s been an honour and privilege to coach you this year! Very proud of all of you!

Sooke U18 boys gold 1  Cowichan 0

This was a pure team victory with every player giving 120 per cent against a very relentless opponent. With no subs, the boys played through sickness and injury in a very physical match. They played for each other and the team work was second-to-none. Couldn’t be prouder of their effort.

 

Coach Glenn Harrison

The U17 girls came away with a win at home on  Sunday playing against Bays U18 girls. Taylor Benard started with a goal for Sooke, but the Bays tied it up in the first half.  Defenders played well together with the support of goalkeeper Hope Millard.  The girls got there second goal by Cassidy Logan,  to take the lead.  Bays persisted and tied it up with a second goal.  Striker Cassidy Logan got her second goal assist by Hailey Dimock to take the lead in the match.  The Autobots will be starting District Cup play offs this coming week.

Coach Wendy Cole

Div 2 Men beat Lakehill 2-1 at home on Sunday.  Goal by Cam Fischer assisted by Al McKay and second goal was a free kick by Al McKay due to Gord Johnson getting taken down just outside the 18 yard box.  first half shut out by Jared Cooper and great second half performance by the mighty Gord Johnson between the pipes.
