L.V. Rogers junior girls cruise to 6-2 soccer win in Trail

The Nelson girls hit their stride in the second half of a friendly match against West Kootenay rival J.L. Crowe.

L.V. Rogers’ junior girls soccer team needed a wake up call at half time, but once they got it there was no stopping them.

The Nelson girls hit their stride in the second half of a friendly match against West Kootenay rival J.L. Crowe Wednesday in Trail.

After a 1-1 draw in the first half, LVR scored five straight goals to put the game out of reach for JL Crowe. The home side did get one back, but that was it as Nelson cruised to a 6-2 win.

“I was happy with the second half effort for the girls,” said coach Chuck Bennett. “They were pretty flat in the first half, but they really stepped up their game in the second half. They were told they needed to be a better side in the second half and they did just that.”

Emma Wheeldon led the scoring with three goals, while Taylor Zimmer, Noa Butterfield and Mattea Lorenzo rounded out the scoring.
