Sooke Soccer Fields Super-Saturated

Sooke soccer rained out

Wet fields made it impossible to play soccer this past week

Fields were under water this weekend so all home games were cancelled.  Just another reminder why we need field improvements!

 

Sooke Soccer Clubkicks off their fundraiser this week.  Look out for the yummy tasting Quinoa Pop – perfect snack for lunches, or pregame bursts of energy!

 

SSC is also selling Christmas trees again this year starting the first week of December with a drop off for bottles as well, at Fred Milne Park.  Come get a tree and support your local soccer club.   Look out for the blue and white this Sunday at the Christmas Parade!

The U14 Boys travelled to Saltspring Island and played one of the tightest defensive games of their season.

Saltspring came away with a 2-1 win but considering they beat us 6-0 last time, this was a huge victory for our boys.

Sooke’s only goal was scored on a breakaway by Gavin Duncan.  Saltspring better watch out next time.

The skies parted and the sun came out for the girls U8 “Lightning” in Langford on Saturday.

The girls had a blast as evident by their smiles and great energy.

 

Each game shows the girls’ improvement in passing, positional play and goaltending. Way to go ladies. Go Lightning!!

 

Jonn Horn – Coach
