The Isfeld Ice junior girls soccer team reached the Island final May 8 in Shawnigan Lake but fell just short of winning the championship.
The girls lost 3-2 to Nanaimo District Secondary School (NDSS) in double overtime. The Ice comprised Grade 8-9 players, whereas Nanaimo was composed of Grade 9s and 10s.
“The height and size of the Nanaimo players was quite evident, but it didn’t deter the Isfeld players,” an Ice spokesperson said.
The tournament included eight teams from across Vancouver Island. Isfeld’s pool consisted of NDSS, Shawnigan Lake and Victoria South.
