THE COMOX VALLEY Millennium U13 girls won the 2014 Slurpee Cup championship.

Returning to Kamloops for a second year, the Comox Valley Millennium girls walked away as the U13 (Group B) Slurpee Cup Champions this past weekend, wrapping up their 2014 youth soccer season on a high note.

The Slurpee Cup is an annual soccer tournament hosted by the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association. Competition is open to teams that are registered with their provincial or state association, and include boys and girls aged U11 to U18.

Competing in the Group B round robin pool, Millennium played four  teams over three days. Millennium dominated play throughout their first three games, winning clear victories against Prince George, Kamloops and Williams Lake.

In their final game, Millennium showed grit in coming back from behind to tie in the last two minutes against a Calgary team.

Overall, Millennium took the top spot with 21 points and a goal differential of 13. Kudos to the defence and goalie who made their presence known, limiting goals scored against to two.

Millennium’s offensive players came alive and thrilled their fans by scoring a whopping 15 goals over four games.

MVPs were awarded for each game, chosen by the opposing team. Millennium’s MVPs were: Sophie Laver, Reilly Douglas, Lauren Wigard and Aisha Hunter-Bellavia.

Millennium showed a strong team effort on all accounts: fitness, passing, ball control, physical play and solid team work made them stand apart. Their team chemistry is evident on and off the pitch.

THROW INS Special thanks to all the people who made this season’s success possible: CVUSC; coaches Jim Stewart, Lisa Wigard, Matt Laver; fitness trainer Kelsey Tufnail, supporters who donated to our bottle drives and bagging fundraisers at the Superstore; parents, friends and family members who supported the team from near and afar …
