Nelson U15 Girls Selects tested by Moscow United

In the Selects first contest on Saturday morning, the Nelson side dominated over the Kootenay South squad.

The Nelson Selects U15 Girls soccer team to Coeur d’Alene to join a large contingent of local teams earlier this month. It was the first tournament of the season for the squad and they played well to finish with a record of 2-1.

In the Selects first contest on Saturday morning, the Nelson side dominated over the Kootenay South squad.

Camille Gebhart opened the scoring with an unassisted goal at 6:45 to give Nelson an early lead. Late in the first half, Darian Voisard added a marker by finishing a free kick from Naomi Perkins. A successful penalty kick by Perkins at 27:45 made the score 3-0 for Nelson at the half. Early in the second half Emma Gregorich scored from distance, followed by a late game goal from Perkins  to complete the hat trick and make the final tally 5-0.

Nelson faced Moscow United in their second match. Midway through the first half, Maddie Sternloff finished a long cross from Perkins to open the scoring and give Nelson the lead. Late in the first half Moscow answered with a goal and brought the game to a 1-1 tie at the half. Early in the second half Moscow added a marker to take a 2-1 lead. Despite numerous scoring opportunities, Nelson was unable to find the back of the net and Moscow secured the win.

In their final contest of the weekend, Nelson once again was the dominating side in a match with the squad from Creston. Sternloff opened the scoring at 5:15, followed by additional goals by Gebhart and Perkins to take the score to 3-0 at the half.

Allie Zondervan scored early in the second half to increase the lead to 4-0. In a repeat of the first half, Gebhart and Perkins scored one more each for a final tally of 6-0.
