Isfeld Ice girls capture AA North Island soccer championship

Team now preparing for Island finals May 16-17 at SMUS in Victoria

The Isfeld Ice captured the AA North Island senior girls soccer championship May 10, defeating hometown favourites Kwalikum Kondors 2-0 at Qualicum Beach.

There was little time for the  Courtenay squad to celebrate as they are at St. Michael’s University School this week (May 16-17) for the eight-team  Island championships.

The Ice held a 1-0 lead until the late stages of the first half of Tuesday’s North Island final, when a Kwalikum breakdown led to a bad-break insurance score. The Kondors stayed with the Ice in the run of play through a solid second half, but could not punch the ball across the goal line.

In the final 10 minutes Isfeld goalkeeper Avarie Dennis robbed Kwalikum’s Alex Shaw by laying out horizontally for a spectacular save on a 22-yard rocket.

The Ice are in Pool B at the Islands along with SMUS, Carihi and the winner of the Parklands vs. Nanaimo District challenge game. In Pool A are Ladysmith, Royal Bay, Brentwood and Brooks.

Ladysmith is the top seed from the North and SMUS is #1 in the South.

Monday’s results were unavailable at press time. Play continues today with the championship final featuring the two pool winners at 3:30 p.m.
