Stars shine at B.C. soccer championship

Port Coquitlam squad wins provincial AA girls crown by beating Burnsview

Archbishop Carney Stars of Port Coquitlam edged Burnsview Griffins 2-1 Saturday afternoon to capture top spot at the 2013 B.C. AA High School Girls Soccer Championships.

The close contest was a fitting end to a three-day (May 27-29) tourney that featured entertaining soccer from 16 teams.

Burnsview (Delta) won the tourney in 2009-10 and 2010-11. NDSS Islanders (Nanaimo) defeated L.V. Rogers Bombers (Nelson) 4-0 in Saturday’s bronze medal game. Defending champion Seycove Seahawks (North Vancouver) finished 13th this year.

The host Isfeld Ice (Courtenay) placed a solid sixth, losing 5-1 to Lambrick Park Lions (Victoria) in the game for fifth place. Shelby Jeeves of Mark Isfeld earned the Golden Boot Award (most goals scored). She tallied seven goals in the tournament and shared the honour with Emma Entzminger of Lambrick Park.

Ice captain Cassidy Marinus received the Commisioner’s 11 Award which is presented by the BC Soccer Commission at the tournament to recognize each  team’s Most Valuable Player throughout their season.

Tournament MVP was Pam Scowby of Archbishop Carney. Little Flower Academy Angels (Vancouver) received the Fair Play Award.

Archbishop Carney went 1-2-0 in pool play, defeating Seycove 5-1 then drawing 1-1 with Sa-Hali Sabres (Kamloops) and 2-2 with Isfeld. They edged NDSS Islanders (Nanaimo) 1-0 to advance to the final.

Burnsview went 3-0 in pool play, defeating Notre Dame Jugglers (Vancouver) 3-1, Lambrick Park Lions (Victoria) 2-0 and Caledonia Kermodes (Terrace) 3-0. They advanced to the final with a 3-1 win over L.V. Rogers.

Isfeld was in the tough Pool C and opened with a 4-2 loss to Seycove. They bounced back to tie eventual B.C. champs Archbishop Carney 2-2 then used a strong second half to beat Sa-Hali 4-1 to complete pool play.

Isfeld opened the playoffs with a 2-1 win over Little Flower Academy before bowing to Lambrick Park.

Ballenas Whalers (Parksville) took seventh with a penalty kick win over Little Flower Academy, Surrey Christian Bulldogs blanked Abbotsford Traditional Titans 4-0 to place ninth, and Notre Dame defeated Sa-Hali in a shootout to finish 11th.

Seycove was 13th, Princess Margaret Lions (Surrey) were 14th, Kalamalka Lakers (Vernon) finished 15th and Caledonia placed 16th.

 

THROW INS Several members of the Ice also represented Isfeld at this year’s provincial volleyball championships … tournament chair and Ice coach Jonathan Bos assembled a strong organizing committee with referee allocator Stu Power, banquet coordinator Claudia Hurworth, website coordinator Jeff Taylor and awards ceremony coordinator Shelley Gailloux … the tourney website was one of the best in many a provincial tourney and drew positive comments from those at the event and following it at home … the many hard-working parents, volunteers and sponsors all contributed to the success of the event …
