U18 girls win gold in blowout game

The U18 girls’ soccer team became first in the Central Alberta Soccer Association (CASA) league in a landslide game

The U18 girls’ soccer team became first in the Central Alberta Soccer Association (CASA) league in a landslide game against Rimbey on Wednesday, June 25, with a final score of 7-0.

Though dark clouds threatened rain, the weather remained cool but clear for the game. Coach Shelley Davis-Hall had to grab players from Ponoka and the U16 Stettler teams to fill some holes in her roster, but she said it didn’t form a significant obstacle.

“They kind of go with the flow,” she said. “They’re quite a pleasure to work with because they’re very open that way.”

Davis-Hall said that while there weren’t many exciting moments in the game, the girls were “outstanding” and passed the ball really well.

“They were phenomenal,” she said.

A lot of people came out to cheer on the girls, including the U12 and U14 girls’ soccer teams, who watched the game as part of their soccer wind-up.

“It was actually kind of cute,” Davis-Hall said.

Tess Pearman scored three goals, Niky Lachowsky scored two, and Carly Armstrong and Sara Salsbury each scored one.
