Carihi clips top-seeded Brooks

Carihi Senior Girls won their second tournament of the season with a well-earned 2-0 victory over North Island Senior Secondary School this past weekend.

Carihi Senior Girls won their second tournament of the season with a well-earned 2-0 victory over North Island Senior Secondary School this past weekend.

The greatest success story of the Sixth Annual Intersport Tournament this year was perhaps not the actual win but the number of Carihi teams involved. The school was able to put in three teams, their Senior team, Junior team and Recreation team. In all, more than 50 girls were involved in the tournament.

The Senior Tyees met their strongest competition in the opening game. They enjoyed an excellent encounter with Brooks of Powell River.

The game provided a taste of their re-match in the league on Tuesday. Currently, Brooks stand atop of the local school league and remain undefeated in league play.

The Tyees went on to win this Cup game 2-0 in the dying minutes after Ayla Akehurst pounced upon a loose ball from the Brooks keeper after a strong cross from Claire Pomeroy. The win was just about deserved as the Tyees had dominated possession in the second half and had missed numerous chances in the first 35 minutes.

The first half saw some of the best passing this season from Carihi thanks to the unselfish work of Jamie Tillapaugh, Haley Craddock and Akehurst in midfield supplying opportunities for forwards Pomeroy, Razza and Morgan Breeze.

The second game of the day saw the Tyees defeat Highland of Comox 6-0. It seemed the victory over Brooks had provided a welcome confidence boost and the Tyees passed the ball with purpose and intent throughout the game. Defenders Taylor Marsh, Jocelyn Cormier, Kelly Wunderlich and Talise Lindenbach had strong games.

Day two saw the Senior girls defeat Shawnigan Lake 2-0 in the morning. This victory put the girls into the final against North Island Senior Secondary.

NISS also went into the final on the back of three straight victories, defeating Carihi Recreation team 6-0, Carihi Juniors 2-0 and Mark Isfeld 4-2.

The championship game saw the Tyees retain the Intersport trophy thanks to a 2-1 win on goals from Wunderlich and Pomeroy.

The Carihi Senior MVP went to Wunderlich, The Carihi Junior award went to Jenna Manners and the Carihi Recreation team MVP went to Jamie Karmanynski.
