Sooke youth soccer squads earn spots in finals

Lower Island Soccer Association (LISA) Cup semifinals played last weekend.

Several Sooke Soccer Club youth teams played in Lower Island Soccer Association (LISA) Cup semifinals last weekend.

The U13 girls played in Juan de Fuca  were up 2-1 until the last few minutes of play when JdF knocked a couple quick goals in to win 3-2.  Coach Rob Oyler said it was a very exciting game that could have gone either way and was proud of his young team’s efforts.

The U14 girls played at Juan de Fuca as well and a great battle between the two teams ended in a 1-0 victory for Sooke with Katie Hisco getting the only goal of the game.

U15 girls also played Juan de Fuca with home advantage. A well-matched game with many chances on both sides ended in a 1-0 win for Sooke with Faith Knoles getting the lone goal despite hitting the crossbar on an earlier penalty kick. Coaches Laura Lockhart and Dave Peters are “astounded” at their team’s overall “performance and teamwork.” The Wildcats remain undefeated and in first place.
