The Port Alberni Athletics U15 Girls soccer team has begun its defence as champions of Vancouver Island.

The team is mostly the same in terms of players and coaches, with a couple of additions to the roster to offset a couple of departures from last season.

The girls started practice in late August and have been working hard through the early part of the season. Their first game was on Sept. 25, and saw them beat Nanaimo 3-0.

On Oct. 2, Comox visited Port Alberni and the Athletics won 2-1. During a stormy weekend on Oct. 16, the team travelled to Powell River and won 2-0. On Oct. 23, Campbell River played at the ADSS field, and once again the Athletics won, this time 1-0.

Most recently, on Oct. 30, Nanaimo returned to Port Alberni, and despite the Athletics carrying the majority of play, the game ended 0-0.

The Athletics play a strong defensive game that seems to frustrate their opponents, all the while relying on some opportunistic scoring.

SOCCER BITS…The team would again like to thank Re/Max, Mountain View Bakery, and Coulson’s.
