The Alberni Athletics U14 Girls’ Soccer team are on a roll. On Nov. 1, they hosted Nanaimo’s HCFC.

The Athletics were shorthanded due to a few absences, but managed to play well overall as a team. They pushed Nanaimo all game and secured a 1-0 victory after Port Alberni’s keeper made a fantastic diving save on a penalty kick near the end of the game.

Up next, the girls travelled to Powell River on Nov. 8 to face the Stingers. Despite a long day of travel the team played hard and beat Powell River 1-0 on a great goal, over top of the opposition’s wandering keeper.

Just this past weekend, the Athletics played in Ladysmith against an older team. The Athletics were shorthanded again—not enough players for substitutions—but carried the play with stellar defence. They led 1-0 until the final 15 seconds when Ladysmith scored to tie it up.

The girls were exhausted, but the effort was outstanding.

The Athletics now have two home games, on Nov. 22 and Nov. 29 at the ADSS turf field.

GOAL POSTS…The team thanks Re/Max, Mountain View Bakery, and Coulson’s for their support.
