Coach Kathy Biro leads the Lake Cowichan School’s senior girl’s soccer team in a pre-game cheer.

Senior girls’ soccer returns to LCS

There were showers and soggy fields but there was every reason to be celebrating as the Lake Cowichan School senior girls

There were showers and soggy fields but there was every reason to be celebrating as the Lake Cowichan School senior girls

took to the pitch to play their first game of soccer in three years on Thursday, April 3.

There has not been enough girls to field a team in recent years

and because of that, the local school was unable to play in the league that would have had the girls playing teams from different schools from around the Cowichan Valley.

Last minute player cancellations left the team from Chemainus arriving for the game short some players, so LCS coach Kathy Biro matched their teams number of players so they could play the game.

The teams were left with seven players on each side instead

of the usual 11, so there was plenty of open field for the players to use. Biro said the girls played really well and that there were nine players who had never played the game before.

Although the team lost their first game, they left the field in good spirits and ready for their next practice.

Their next game was Tuesday, April 8 in Duncan against Duncan Christian School and then they return home for a game against Queen Margaret’s School on April 9.

Go Lakers!
