Riptide’s Autumn Lewis makes her way through Gorge’s defence en route to earning two assists in Saturday’s 4-0 win.

Marine Harvest Riptide U15 girls win fifth straight soccer game

Momentum continues for the Marine Harvest Riptide U15 Girls soccer team, who won their fifth game in a row with a shutout on Saturday.

Riptide faced Gorge/Lakehill in Campbell River hoping to improve on their previous match in early September when Riptide won 1-0. Riptide’s defensive play remained strong and the offensive line was able to find a sweet spot this time, resulting in a 4-0 win.

But that doesn’t mean it was an easy game. Riptide captain Lauren Wigard noted that, “Gorge fought hard and they aren’t a team we should take for granted. I am very proud of how we played this weekend; we started out strong, lost our composure in the middle, but we pulled ourselves together in the second half and stuck to our game plan.”

Wigard’s affection for her team is evident. “I’m so lucky to have these strong, dedicated girls as my teammates and I can tell it’s going to be a good season.”

This game marked a special first of the season for three Riptide players. Autumn Lewis made her mark with two assists, assistant captain Aisha Hunter-Bellavia celebrated her first goal this year, and with much excitement, Wigard saw her efforts realized with an assist and her first two goals as a U15 player.

 

Marine Harvest Riptide U15 Girls play their next game away against Saanich on Saturday. For more information, visit Riptide 2001 Girls on Facebook.
