The Shuswap FC U12 girls played with drive and determination in Kamloops over the weekend as they tied Kelowna Black and defeated Kelowna White in two hard fought matches.

In the first contest, Kelowna was able to capitalize on a shot and led 1-0 at half.

In the second match, Julia Hart earned a shutout in the first half with the score tied 0-0 at half.

With five minutes left, King, who received the ball from Barnes, managed to score. This proved to be the game winner and the final score was 1-0.  Braidy Parkes earned the shutout in the second half.
