Youth soccer clubs find silver lining

A roundup of how Sooke did in the weekend's soccer games

The Under 18, U15 and U14 Sooke Soccer Club girl teams went on a silver streak in the Lower Island Soccer Association final cup play.

On the U14 side, Sooke played a rematch against league rival Saltspring Island and lost 1-0.

Two weekends ago, the two sides met and it went to a penalty kick shootout, and the referee did not allot  Sooke five shots and called the game a win for Saltspring after only four shots.

Sooke protested the contest and the game was replayed last weekend.

The U15 girls lost 2-0 against their toughest competition of the season, Cowichan.

Both teams have almost identical standings so the game could have gone either way.
