U14 girls get win

Cariboo Youth Soccer League rolled into 100 Mile House

Cariboo Youth Soccer League play was underway in 100 Mile House on May 25.

The 100 Mile House Storm – a U14 girls’ team – hosted Williams Lake and Quesnel.

The Storm had a rocky start against Williams Lake, and had to climb back from a small deficit, coach Hilary Gosnell explains.

“Williams Lake took a 1-0 lead early in the first half, but with excellent passing and teamwork, 100 Mile brought the ball back up the field to level the score.”

The second half saw even more exciting plays, Gosnell adds.

“[Goalie] Alison Carr faced a couple of penalty shots, while 100 Mile midfielders showed excellent control and leadership and started some great team rushes that were followed up by our fast-paced forwards.”

Sydni Poggenpohl netted two goals and Ashley Holyk netted one in the 3-2 win for 100 Mile House.

Heather Heales took the net for the first half of a game against Quesnel later that afternoon, which proved to be the Storm’s toughest league competition so far this season, Gosnell says.

“[Heales] did an amazing job keeping the score down. The game was an uphill battle, however, and the girls never found the intensity and teamwork that led them to their morning win.”

Ashley Holyk scored for 100 Mile House in the 4-1 loss.
