Lake Cowichan Secondary School’s Senior Girls Soccer Team competes in provincials

The girls played hard and never gave up, Lake Cowichan Secondary School Senior Girls’ Soccer Team coach Adrian Achurch said, of last weekend’s provincial tournament in Victoria.

The girls played hard and never gave up, Lake Cowichan Secondary School Senior Girls’ Soccer  Team coach Adrian Achurch said, of last weekend’s provincial tournament in Victoria.

“I was really proud of them,” Achurch said.

“They were in every game. We were never blown out, and they were never discouraged.”

Although the girls ended up placing 16th out of the 16 competing teams, they were stacked against the very best Single A League teams in the province.

The girls making it to provincials is an accomplishment in itself, he said.

The tournament included one scary moment, when goalie Juliana Pool collided hard with an opponent.

After x-rays were done on Pool’s leg, she got the clear.

“She’s alright now,” Achurch said.

The team has also developed a new nemesis; Port Hardy.

After a rough game against Port Hardy during the Island tournament, and another during the Provincials, they’ve proven themselves in the eyes of local girls worthy of the nemesis title, Achurch said.

The provincial tournament marks the end of this year’s soccer season.
