Riptide topples Storm 3-1

The U14 Riptide girls soccer team defeated the Nanaimo Storm 3-1 last weekend in Campbell River. (In their last meeting, the Riptide won 2-0.)

Katie Anderson, playing left wing, made it 1-0 within the three-minute mark after crossing a seemingly unthreatening ball that fooled the keeper.

Then at minute 22, a cross from right winger Alana Logan found attacking midfielder Nastasha Kalhous, whose one-timer hit the back of the net for a 2-0 lead at half.

The second half started much like the first. All 14 Riptide players knew they had to step up their game if they were to solidify a victory.

At minute 45, Kalhous found herself on top of the Storm’s box, beat a few players and slid the ball home for a 3-0 lead.

The Storm continued to press and were awarded with a goal.

“The game ended with the cowbell spent, the air horn exhausted, and the fans elated,”a news release states.

Next game is home to the Victoria Surge.
