Port Alberni calms the Wave

The Campbell River Wave girls U13 rep soccer team played the Port Alberni Athletics last Sunday

The Campbell River Wave girls U13 rep soccer team played the Port Alberni Athletics last Sunday at the Cedar soccer pitch.

Goalkeeper Kayla Lund was busy throughout the game with a constant barrage of shots from the Athletics. The first quarter of the game was played mostly in Wave territory, with the defence of Lavinia Rendall, Phenix Konrad, Emily McLean, Kate Regier, Haley Wingert and Tory Stewart kept busy.

Solid support on the wing from Game Captain Sandrine Daniels allowed some shots on goal from Wave forwards Shelby Cyr and Amelia Nimmon. The first half ended scoreless.

The Athletics rallied after halftime with two goals. Lund made a couple amazing saves before the Athletics were able to sneak in another to make it 3-0 for Port Alberni. Shortly after, Nyla Haider stole possession of the ball and moved it up to Holly Crosby who used her speed to go up the field.

Inara Jhawer had a beautiful goal on the short side to finally put the Wave on the board. But Port Alberni scored one more goal to end the game 4-1 in their favour.

The Wave play a doubleheader against the Powell River Stingers next Sunday.
