U18 Riptide undefeated at Seattle tournament

The Marine Harvest Riptide U18 girls soccer team came together from Port Hardy, Powell River, Campbell River and the Comox Valley with their colleagues, the U15 and 16 girls, and travelled to Seattle for the Starfire soccer showcase. Under the guidance of coach Scott Harris, and assistants Ernie Sellentin and Mike Kearns, the U18s once again upheld the reputation of being a team to watch, winning all of their games.

Goalies Avarie Dennis and Carmen Miller shared the privilege of a complete shutout in four games. Defenders Toni Powsey and Tommylia Dunbar remained confident and calm on the ball, and Emma Skalik and Olivia Sellentin produced some brilliant headers.

Kaitlyn Dreger showed her secret strength in one-on-ones and Maddy Harris dove in to secure the ball in the front line.

Ally Carpendale with her strength in body and kick made sure the ball stayed in the opponents’ box.

Goal scorers over the the four games were Cameron Kearns, Sarah Bard, Tiana Stewart, Kaleigh Harris, Taylor Kinley, with Carsyn Casparie and Madison Stevens shooting straight from the head into the net.

Shel Brodsgaard and Ken Garraway provided technical direction and manager Johanne Moreau ensured the girls were well fed.
