L.V. Rogers girls take 6th at soccer provincials

The L.V. Rogers senior girls soccer team won three of five games to take sixth spot at the BC high school AA soccer provincials.

The L.V. Rogers senior girls soccer team won three of five games to take sixth spot at the BC high school AA girls soccer provincials this past week in Burnaby.

After suffering a tough opening 3-nil loss to St. Michaels University School of Victoria, the girls responded with two round-robin victories to earn second spot in their pool. The Bombers knocked off Holy Cross 2-1 and then host Crofton 3-0. Allie Zondervan and Emma Wheeldon scored in the Holy Cross game, while Naomi Perkins and Jenna Wheeldon scored against Crofton. Perkins scored two in that game.

The second place finish put the girls up against Brookswood in its first play-off round game. The girls battled hard to a 1-nil win. Perkins scored the only goal of the game.

That win put the girls into the five-six championship game, but unfortunately, three injuries to starters in the game the day before had an impact on the team and they fell 4-nil to Ballenas Secondary School of Parksville.

“I was very happy with the girls,” said head coach Brett Adams. “Could we have finished higher, yes, but we ran into some tough injuries after three straight wins and that had an impact. Overall, it was a great tournament for us.”
