SSC kicking it in pre-season play

Soccer results from some of the season's first games

Blue and white took to the pitch this weekend with intensity! A gorgeous weekend for team pictures – a big thank you to Roger and Ursula from AAA Photography for making us all laugh it up!

The Sooke U16 girls had a hot game this Saturday in Cowichan Valley with warm temperatures and hot actions on the pitch.

Lajah Warren placed the first ball into the net followed by Mariyah Dunn with the great right-footed finish from outside the 18 box.

Cowichan Valley came out in the second half looking more refreshed from the drains of the warm temperature, but even that was not enough and Carymn Wright placed one with her (other) left foot into the lower corner of the opponent net.

Both keepers were able to earn shootouts by taking away Cowichan’s only attempt’s by attacking the ball at  the top of the 18. Final score Cowichan Valley 0 Sooke 3

U13 Girls beat Lakehill 2-0. Goals scored by Allana Garat and Alexa Wright.

U14 boys beat Peninsula 6-5.

U16 Sooke Shredders beat Peninsula 11-0.   Taylor Cummings and Marley Pasichnyk both got hat tricks and Chris Berkeley, Matthew Miller and Tie Boake also got goals.

The U17/18 Boys annihilated Saltspring 7-0.  The second half saw their talented goalkeeper Kyle Rodd playing out and he managed to knock in a sweet penalty shot.  Oh, the irony.   At time of submitting, not all stats were provided.

One more week of seeding and then regular league play starts!  Best of luck to all Sooke teams!
