Marine Harvest Riptide U14 boys crush Cowichan

Marine Harvest Riptide U14 boys soccer team dominated Cowichan 8-0 last weekend, with goalkeeper Delton Kruell achieving another shutout.

Coach Stephen Hall expressed: “Good performance by the lads. Today we utilized our pace and superior passing skills to unlock the opposition’s defence. Some great give-and-goes in the attacking third of the pitch enabled us to get loads of scoring chances. Another shutout for our squad and some solid efforts from our back four and holding midfielders.”

The Riptides rotating defenders (Jakob Tortorelli, Brayden Hues, Scott Gilfillan, Joshua Kalhous, Macyn Leopkey Johnson) and rotating holding midfielders (Sam Purcell, Andrew Petrovcic, Cameron Bell) continuously intercepted Cowichan advances and quickly transitioned from defensive play to attacking.

The Riptide struck for three goals in the first half, the first was from Alonso Cortez and the next two were scored by Spencer Fleming. Fergus Hall assisted on all three goals.

Marine Harvest Riptide kept the gas pedal on during the second half and produced another five goals. Scoring were Corban Collett, Fergus Hall, Brayden Hues and two for Jerod Timothy. Assists were made by Corson Arbour, Fergus Hall and Cameron Bell.
