The Salmon Arm Secondary Senior Girls Soccer team played in their first tournament this past weekend in Kelowna.

The tournament was a great learning experience for the girls and the team got stronger with each game. It’s a young team with only three returning  Grade 12 players from last year (although there are five Grade 12s).

SAS tied the first game with LV Rogers 1-1 with a great performance by goalie Conner Turner.

The second game was against Immaculata, which SAS lost 3-0. Player of the game was Kayla Byers.

The third game of the day was against Mt Boucherie ‘AA’, which SAS won 1-0 on a goal by Libby Olsen. Player of the game was Gabby Jackson.

On Saturday Salmon Arm played Osoyoos and went to PKs, winning 4-3. Player of the game was Maia McLellan. The last game was versus Similkameen, which SAS won 2-0 on goals from Glynis Sim and Maddie Lavery. Player of the game was Holly Nickles.

In the first league game Monday in Penticton, the game ended in a 0-0 draw. The team’s now off to Victoria for a tournament.
