U11 girls Sooke Blue vs. Lakehill Red

The Sooke Blue Ice U 11 girls came back after a scoreless first half to tie Lakehill 2-2 on Saturday.

The Sooke Blue Ice U 11 girls came back after a scoreless first half to tie Lakehill 2-2 on Saturday.

Before the game, coach Sean Knoles said the girls — entering their fourth game of the season without a win — were just focusing on the fundamentals and having a good time.

“The last two games were two-goal games. They’re still learning the basics,” said Knoles.

The Ice have a roster full of new faces this season, and many of the players have been rotating positions, including goalie, to see where their strengths are. Lakehill put away a quick pair of goals in the first half, but Sooke came back refreshed after the break and answered back with two goals of their own.

“They got some really good ball movement, our strikers kind of came through and scored.”

Knoles said the team is finally settling into their respective roles, and going forward they are going to “streamline.”

The girls’ next home game is on Nov. 19 at 11 a.m. against Gorge.
