The U18 Comox Valley Evolution girls soccer team blanked the visiting Powell River side 6-0 at Valley View on Sunday, Jan. 30.

It was a treat for fans to watch the game under warm, sunny skies. The Evolution scored in the opening minutes of play when Maddy Bams moved the ball up to Rebecca Williams who then shot and put it into the net. Shortly before the end of the half, Stephanie Devonshire took a free kick and dumped it into the 18-yard box just past the keeper.  Williams raced to the ball, took a shot and Devonshire followed the ball as it rolled across the goal line, making it 2-0 Evolution. 

Early into the second half Jillian Paton made a nice pass to Williams who scored her hat trick goal. “The Evolution definitely came to the field ready to play as the  midfielders and defenders consistently kept pressure on their checks and were able to keep most of the play in Powell River’s end,” a team spokesperson said. “Evolution forwards effectively moved the ball up the wings and made many good crossovers to keep the opposition’s defence very busy.”

Midway through the half Bams netted a goal for the Evolution (assist to Williams) and minutes later the roles were reversed as Bams made a beautiful crossover to Williams who took a hard shot with her left foot and made it 5-0 Evolution.

In the final minutes of play Paton got the ball to Williams who once again kept her hot foot moving and netted her fifth goal of the game to make the final score 6-0.
