Last Tuesday night women’s soccer saw a well-matched game between Ted United and Vernon’s Chick Kickers.
United’s Shalinda Morin opened up the scoring with a top corner shot off a cross from Sue Doray. Chick Kickers quickly answered with a goal of their own. Kyla Sherman found the back of the net after receiving one of Doray’s powerful corner kicks. Once again Kickers answered with a goal of their own to tie up the game at the end of the first half.
Both teams came out strong in the second. Kickers repeatedly tried to feed their speedy forwards but couldn’t get past the solid defensive line of Heather Rolin, Christine Nickles, Krista Yonker and Heidi Barry. Halfway through the second, Liz Mair sent a well- placed through ball to Tricia Martin who in turn saw Morin and sent it through to her. Morin, with great finesse, lobbed the ball over the Kickers goaltender. United was once again up by one, but not for long. In the last minute of play with a scramble in front of United’s net, Kickers placed one in for a final score of 3-3.
