On Oct. 4, the Alberni Athletics U14 girls’ soccer team played their rivals, Nanaimo’s Harbour City Football Club. The Athletics came out strong  both defensively and on the offensive attack, but failed to score. Normally, HCFC is the more aggressive side, but the Athletics were equal to the task.

The game ended in a 0-0 draw, with the play being even throughout the match.

The Athletics displayed some excellent passing and overall team play.

On Oct. 18 the team hosted a team from Oceanside. The visitors had an overall age advantage, being older, but the Athletics carried the play for the majority of the game. Oceanside scored on a very unlucky bounce, but the Athletics answered back with a penalty kick goal to even the score, ending in a 1-1 draw.

Finally, on Oct. 25, the girls travelled to Comox for their latest game.

The girls again were strong and carried the play, with the game ending in another 0-0 draw.

Next game action is Nov. 1, at home versus HCFC.

OFFSIDES…The Athletics thank the  Coulson Group and RE/MAX for their support and welcome their newest sponsor, Mountain View Bakery.
