Tough second day for Nelson Selects girls teams at Provincial B Cup

It was a tough day for Nelson Selects girls teams on the second day of Provincial B Cup action in North Vancouver on Friday afternoon.

It was a tough day for Nelson Selects girls teams on the second day of Provincial B Cup action in North Vancouver on Friday afternoon.

Needing a win to have any shot at the gold medal game after a 2-0 loss in the first game of the tournament Thursday, the U14 Selects opened the scoring against Prince George when striker Jessie Van Donselaar notched a goal in the opening minutes.

Playing under hot conditions in North Vancouver, Prince George tied up the score before the first half ended.

The game went back and forth in the second half and just when it looked like the game might be headed to extra time, Prince George scored at the final whistle to capture the 2-1 win.

The U14 Girls will now play the Powell River Surge in their final round robin game on Saturday afternoon.

After a tough 2-1 loss in their opening game of the tournament against West Vancouver, the defending provincial silver medalist Selects U15 squad was hoping for a better effort on day-two against a tough Quesnel Strikers side.

The two evenly matched teams battled hard in the first half, but neither team could find the back of the net.

With 15 minutes left in the second half, defender Merissa Dawson nailed a ball just over half that managed to get past the Quesnel keeper to give Nelson a 1-0 lead. But only minutes after the Selects goal, Quesnel responded to make the game 1-1.

Though both teams pushed in the final 10 minutes, the score ended in a tie.

The U15s will now conclude the round robin with a game against the Tsawwassen Blues, needing a win to have any chance at a gold medal.

After a surprise opening win against Coquitlam in the opening game of the tournament, the U16 Girls were hoping to keep the run going on Friday against Williams Lake.

It was not to be as the Selects dropped a 2-0 decision to even their round robin record. On Saturday the U16s will take on the Vancouver Island champion Prospect Lake Lakers at 9 am.
