U13/14 boys soccer sees Sooke as league champions

The U13 Boys finished their regular season with a hard-fought win against Juan de Fuca on Feb 15.

The U13 Boys finished their regular season with a hard-fought win against Juan de Fuca on Feb 15.  The game was enough to put their stats at eight wins, one tie and no losses, securing them the title of 2014 Lower Island Boys U13/14 League Champions.

During the season they made a run for the LISA Cup as well, winning their first cup match against Cowichan Valley and then going head to head with the Sooke U14 Boys on Jan. 25th.  The older team took home the win but had to fight for it from their younger club-mates.

The boys played their first Lower Island District Cup match in the Silver 1 division on Mar. 1 against Gorge.  And what a match it was!  Mid-fielder Simon Herold sent a free kick soaring into the top corner of the net, then followed it up with a perfectly placed penalty kick, giving Sooke a 2-0 lead. The front line of Max Hadrich, Steven Sessions and Jamie Horan pressured the Gorge defense with lots of action in their end, but they just couldn’t get the ball across the goal line.

Gorge scored to make it a 2-1 game.

Striker Max Hadrich fired a shot from way out that found the back of the net to give Sooke their two goal lead once again.  Mid-fielders Zac Miller, Simon Herold, Aiden Parkin and Brendan Kamikawaji kept Gorge on their toes with their speed and teamwork.

Gorge tied the score 3-3. The first 10 minutes of overtime ended with no scoring, still ties at 3-3.

The solid defense of Gavin Duncan, Rowan Wilson, Darby Strecheniuk and Nick Pasichnyk did their job well, keeping the ball out of their end and away from the net.

With 3 seconds left in the second overtime round Gorge managed to find a hole on a corner kick scramble in front of the net to set the final score at 4-3 Gorge.

Sooke goalkeeper Hunter Broadhurst had a stellar game with a number of great saves that made this match one to be proud of.  Joshua Horan and Jason Logan were under the weather but with their teammates in spirit.

Registration is open now for the 2014-15 season as well as the new Spring League (May/June 2014).  Visit the Sooke Soccer website www.sookesoccer.com for information.
