Juniors’ loss ranks them into second slot

It took until a second overtime period, but the junior girls were forced to head into the Okanagan Championships ranked second in the north.

The team recently faced Vernon Secondary School in the North Zone championships.

The score was tied 0-0 after regulation, and continued to be tied after the first 15 minute overtime. VSS scored about 13 minutes into the second overtime slot and then scored again just before the end of the game to make it 2-0.

“This was a great, hard fought game,” said coach Tricia Martin.

“As one of our players commented after the game, the last time we played VSS it was a great game and this time it was even 10 times better! We had a lot of the second half that we dominated with great possession and passing. We were just not able to convert all the great passing into a goal. Julia Hart made an amazing diving save in the first half that was ‘TSN top saves’ worthy!”

Martin commented on the tenacious play of her team, saying they never gave up for the entire 100 minutes.

“Megan Hart and Kate Milne ran at least 10 kilometres playing in the centre midfield. Kate did an excellent job of filling in at the centre position after our two other centre-mids went down with injuries,” said Martin.
