The L.V. Rogers girls soccer team came home from the Okanagan last weekend as champions of the Summerland tournament.

The Bombers girls went 3-1 in the tournament with their only loss coming in a shootout.

In the first game against Williams Lake, goals by Laurel Sherriff, Paige Mansveld, Keegan Paterson and Erica Augsten gave the locals a 4-0 win.

In game two the Bombers’ offensive assault kept rolling with a 5-0 win against Queen Elizabeth of Surrey. Morag Paterson notched the rare soccer hat trick with Hailee Gerun and Mansveld adding singles.

The third game was the Bombers toughest game of the weekend with Princess Margaret of Penticton giving the locals all they could handle. The score ended deadlocked in zeros. The shootout resulted in a 1-0 loss for the Bombers.

The final saw Nelson once again matched up against Williams Lake. Two goals by Mansveld and singles by Gerun and Andi Stinson resulted in the same 4-0 result as the first game of the tournament.

So far this season, Bombers goalie Kat Garbula has not allowed a single goal during regulation time. Mansveld has scored in every game so far this spring.

The Bombers will travel to Kelowna this weekend where they hope to keep their roll going.
