U13 girls peak at the right time

The Nelson U13 Girls Selects put in their best performance of the year during the provincial playdowns and were rewarded with the gold medal and a trip to the Provincial B Cup.

The Nelson U13 Girls Selects put in their best performance of the year during the provincial playdowns and were rewarded with the gold medal and a trip to the Provincial B Cup.

The playdowns, hosted by Castlegar, consisted of round robin play between the Nelson Selects, the Kootenay South Rockets, and the Cranbrook Rovers.

The Nelson squad played hard and disciplined soccer to finish with a perfect record and no goals scored against.

In Saturday’s first match, the Nelson Selects won 2-0 over the Kootenay Rockets. Scoreless at halftime, Nelson dominated the play with Darian Voisard scoring both goals in the second half for the win.

Saturday afternoon, the Nelson Selects dominated the Cranbrook Rovers with a decisive victory of 6-0. Solid individual and team play kept the ball in the Cranbrook half for most of the game.

Voisard lead the scoring with three goals. Completing the tally were goals by Naomi Perkins, Amelia Martze, and Lakpa Dietz. Keeper Haley Cooke was solid between the pipes to earn the double shutout.

“We are extremely pleased with the effort and skill shown by the Nelson squad this weekend,” said coach Pat Perkins. “This was the team’s best performance of the year and all players should be proud of their performance individually and as a squad.”
