THE RIPTIDE U15 girls soccer team played to a 4-4 draw with Bays United in their Vancouver Island Premier League season opener in what proved to be an entertaining match.

Riptide girls earn 4-4 draw

Two goals late in the game pulls U15 girls soccer team even




The Vancouver Island Premier League (VIPL) kicked off its second season this past weekend.

VIPL is an inter-district soccer league consisting of teams from the Lower Island Soccer Association and Upper Island Soccer Association.

There are currently 11 teams representing the Upper Island, with five “Riptide” teams drawing players from the communities of Campbell River, Powell River and the Comox Valley.

The Riptide 1998 U15 Girls, sponsored by Comox Valley RV and Sea Roamer Marine Services, travelled to Victoria this past Saturday to play Bays United Diablas U15G.

The Diablas coach described the game as “a barn burner” with the Riptide rallying late to score two goals in the final 10 minutes. The Riptide were able to salvage a 4-4 draw in this very entertaining game.
