U14 boys extend winning streak to four games

Silver squad hasn’t lost a game this season

The Sooke Boys U14 Silver soccer team couldn’t have started its season off in much better fashion.

After6-1 victory over Lake Hill last Saturday, Sooke is unbeaten after four weeks of play and has’nt shown any signs of slowing down.

“They’re coming along great this year. It’s been a huge improvement from last year,” said coach Marco Demelo.

Last year, the Sooke club started with a 10-1 win, but then struggled as the season progressed. The team placed fifth by the end of the season.

This year most of the team has returned and the two new players added to the roster have added overall team depth.

The other major factor, Demelo said, is the team has bought into the system.

The result? More all-rounded play on offence and defence, with the capability of using the full field.

Demelo expects nothing but team success this year with a top of the standings finish topped off with playoff success.

“There’s no complaints.The kids are relaxed and just having fun,” Demelo said.
