Nothing could hold back the Shuswap Sharp Shooters U11’s girl’s soccer team on Sunday as they levelled Kelowna and Kamloops teams in Penticton.
Kelowna came out strong in the first game by scoring 10 minutes in but Shuswap responded with Jordan King making a run up the field off the kickoff and scoring off a brilliant, long shot to the top left corner. Shuswap’s passing proved to be too much for Kelowna and Alana O’Dell managed to power her way through three Kelowna defenders before slotting the ball into the back of the net. The final score was 2-1 for Shuswap.
The Sharp Shooters came out firing in their second contest of the day. Lys Milne managed to get by two Kamloops defenders before crossing the ball to King, who was able to put the ball in the back of the net. Shortly after, Braidy Parkes passed to King and she was able to finish with a rocket of a shot. Phoebe Barnes, scored off a corner kick giving Shuswap a 3-0 lead. After great passing, Brooklyn Davidson scored on a feisty run up the wing. Milne finished off by beating two defenders and slotting the ball past the goalie. Parkes and Julia Hart shared the shutout. The final score was 5-0.
