Nelson U15 Girls Selects make easy work of Kootenay South

The Nelson Selects cruised through a two-game series with the Kootenay South Storm on Sunday to earn a spot in the Provincial B Cup

The Nelson Selects U15 Girls cruised through a two-game series with the Kootenay South Storm on Sunday to earn a spot in the Provincial B Cup next month in North Vancouver.

In the first game held on Sunday morning, the Nelson side dominated their Kootenay South (Trail, Castlegar, Rossland, Fruitvale) rivals, winning the match 7-2.

Allie Zondervan opened the scoring early in the first half, followed by markers from Naomi Perkins and Emily Graeme to give Nelson a 3-0 lead at the half. The Kootenay squad scored from a penalty kick early in the second half to narrow the score to 3-1. Nelson quickly answered with goals by Camille Gebhart, Kyra Burkart, and a pair of scores by Zondervan to bring the score to 7-1. Kootenay South added a goal at the end of the game, leaving the final score at 7-2.

Nelson dominated once again in the afternoon game, defeating Kootenay South 4-0.

Once again, Zondervan opened the scoring early in the first half. Perkins followed with a pair of goals to give Nelson a 3-0 lead at the break. Perkins added another marker early in the second half to give Nelson a 4-0 lead which stand to the end of the game.

Coaches Paul Burkart and Pat Perkins are extremely pleased with the performance of the squad.

Every member of the team worked well attacking and defending,and proved themselves worthy to represent the Kootenay region at the Provincial B Cup in July,” said Perkins. “Well done.”

Last season, the team — playing as U14 — came home from the provincials with a silver medal which was the best showing by a Nelson team at the provincial championships. The Provincial B Cup will take place July 4-7.
