Comox Valley U15 boys soccer team beats Victoria North

The MOWI Riptide kicked off last weekend with a three-team field trip to Powell River for training on Friday.

Sunday at home, the U16 girls suffered a tough loss against a talented Victoria North team, which dominated the game from start to finish, winning 7-0.

The U14 girls played an even game against the visiting Victoria North and won 1-0. The two teams played the majority of the game in the middle of the park, with very few goal scoring chances for either team.

The U18 girls were also victorious Sunday, defeating the U17 Bays team 6-0.

The U18 boys played the U18 Storm team at Merle Logan field in Nanimo and snuck away with a 2-0 win. The boys have shifted their mentality and grow stronger with each week with the results trending in a similar fashion.

The U15 boys hosted the U14 West team from Victoria and won 7-1. The U15s are progressing from last season when they won three games out of 20. The team is moving the ball well in possession and the level of confidence in the team is much stronger.

The U16 boys defeated Victoria North 3-2 for the first time in two seasons. Head coach Bodo VonSchilling returned to his former club Saanich Fusion and enjoy this glorious victory.

“Travelling together as a program on Friday with three teams to Powell River was a lot of fun,” Riptide technical director Shel Brodsgaard said. “All of the players were received with open arms by the host community, and the local parents went out of their way to accommodate the 50-plus players and coaches for the day. In addition, the results from the games this weekend show that our coaches are doing a remarkable job preparing the teams for league play as all teams are moving forwards with results. This is an exciting part of the season as teams have had a chance to play one-third of the season in league play as we prepare to travel to the Starfire Showcase in November (U16 and U18 girls) and Portland Timbers Alliance Showcase in December (U15, U16 and U18 boys).”
