The Shuswap FC U12 girls notched two wins against Kamloops Orange and Kamloops Blue on Sunday in front of a home crowd at Little Mountain.

In the first match of the day versus Kamloops O, the Sharp Shooters set the tone early by making it 1-0 in the first five minutes of play.

Center midfielder Phoebe Barnes sent the ball out wide to winger Jordan King. She passed the ball to Lys Milne, who slotted the ball in the back of the net.  Fifteen minutes later, Kamloops responded with a goal of their own making the score 1-1.

Seconds later, after a series of give-and-gos,   King passed the ball to speedy Braidy Parkes who blasted the ball in the back of the net making it 2-1.

Shuswap defenders Laura Hall, Brooklyn Davidson and Janae Bocking were impenetrable in the second half and the final score was 2-1 for Shuswap.

Julia Hart and Parkes, who shared goal-keeping duties were outstanding.

In the second match of the day, Shuswap came out strong, maintained possession and made crisp and concise passes against an aggressive Kamloops squad.

Hall and Barnes controlled the middle of the field and continued to feed the Shuswap forwards. The Shuswap strikers peppered the Kamloops keeper with shots but she was able to hold them off and both teams were scoreless at half.

Shuswap continued to pressure the goal and were rewarded early in the second half when King deked out a Kamloops defender and passed the ball to striker Alana O’Dell who finished with a beautiful shot.

The final score was 1-0. Parkes and Hart shared the shutout.
