Successive Soccer Successes for Sooke

Two week summary on Sooke Soccer teams. The teams have been very successful as of late.

  • Nov. 12, 2014 11:00 a.m.

The U8 Girls “Lightning” had a great game on Saturday and gave their best in a defensive game.  Team spirit and great fun were had by all team members. Go Lightning!

Jonathan Horn – Coach

The Girls under 8 “Dolphins“ had another successful game against JDF Haywood and pretty much dominated the entire match. Strikers Sophia Hallas, Ruby Price, Xanthe Evans and Niya Clarkson scored a combined 5 goals. Excellent efforts by Shelby Hoffer, Sophie Constandinou and Mishsa Bartlett helped secure the 5-1 victory. Awesome defense from the Patterson twins Sara and Lindsay as well as solid keeper effort from Phia Jonassen pretty much shut down all offense generated by Jdf.

U16 Boys Silver

It was a beautiful day on Salt Spring for an action packed game last week.

The first half was a tight game 3-1 for Sooke Shredders with some incredible saves from Bobby Nex, and an amazing save from Oliver Tonneson when our goalie was down.

Taylor Cummings got a hat trick with assists from Hagen Herold and Matthew Miller.

In the second half Salt Spring scored another goal and Sooke answered with two more goals from Matthew  Miller which were two beautifully placed Headers right into the net assisted again by

Hagen Herold.

End result 5-2 Sooke.

We would like to mention playing with Salt Spring was great not only challenging but a really great group of boys. Thank you!

This week, the U16 Boys fought a good fight, with one of our players away we brought up two U14 boys and they fought hard for the team! Shredders beat JDF U16 boys 5-4 with a hat trick from Taylor Cummings, a goal from Hagen Harold, and a hard fought goal from our U14 boy Simon Harold.  Assists from Chris Berkeley, Hagen Harold and Simon Harold.

A big thank you to Simon Harold and Rowan Wilson for all your hard work, and helping the Shredders out!

U16 girls silver played a spectacular game this past Saturday with wonderful November weather. They played their District Cup nemesis from last year beating them for the second time this year with a 4-0 score. Beth and Nicole both earned shutouts for their time between the posts.

Coach Bruce Milton

U14 Girls Silver played two games this weekend. Saturday saw JDF in Sooke – a nail biter of a game with no score at the half.  JDF got ahead with a goal and Sooke managed to tie it up by a sweet assist from Shae Yates to our super striker Emma Lembcke to fire it in top corner.

Amazing effort by the entire team and a shout out to our GK Ella Dennett for making a million amazing saves!  Sunday saw Saanich Fusion in Sooke for a make up game.  Saanich scored first in the first half.  Sooke came back to tie it with an amazing boot from outside the 18 from Brittany Homer who was brought up from U13 to play.  Emma Lembcke with the assist.

The battle continued and with a scramble in front of Saanich net, top notch midfielder Alex Peters got some space and fired in a wicked shot to come ahead 2-1.

With only a couple minutes left to play, Saanich was coming on strong, and managed to get a shot on net – our GK Ella Dennett saved the shot, they fired in a rebound, she scrambled to save it and did but with her momentum ended up stepping over the line.  GKs worst nightmare but it happens to the best of em!

Whistle blew to end the game seconds after the restart ending in a 2-2 tie.  Way to go Wildcats!  This team is really starting to up their game and playing only three teams all season, it’s going to be a battle to the finish!

Coach Laura Lockhart

U14 Boys defeated Peninsula 5-1.  Two goals scored by Simon Herold and one each for Zach Miller, Max Hadrich and Aiden Parkin.  Another solid game in goal for Hunter Broadhurst.  The team is sitting in third place in the Silver division.

Manager Cherie Duncan

Sooke Tidalwaves tied Saanich Fusion 1-1 on Saturday. Sooke’s goal was scored by Jaylin Shaw and assisted by Marin Clarkston.
