Riptide U14 Boys have the edge over Saanich

The U14 Boys Marine Harvest Riptide earned 3 to 2 win over Saanich Fusion November 22nd on home turf.

The Riptide boys were first to score in the 21st minute from Cameron Bells corner kick which Brayden Hues headed into the net.

In the second half, Saanich Fusion came back attaining a goal from a free kick outside the 18 yard box.  Riptide responded and wing midfielder Corban Collett used his speed and determination to fight off multiple Fusion defenders and released an awkward lob shot from the sideline.  The Saanich goal keeper was caught off guard and the ball drifted into the far corner of the Fusions net.

Eight minutes later, Corban was fouled in the opponent’s 18 yard box and awarded a penalty kick.  Cameron Bell took the penalty kick and rifled the ball into the back of the net giving the Fusion goal keeper no chance.

Fusion fought back and acquired 1 more goal in the last minute of the game.

Goalkeeper Delton Kruell was tested a few times throughout the game and was key (with the assistance of defensive line) to the Riptide holding on to the win.

Riptide Coach Stephen Hall commented after the game: “The lads played well and won the mid field battles. This was a physical yet fair game with us outshooting the competition 16 to 8.

We had some great penetrating runs which resulted in good scoring chances (we hit the woodwork three times).”

The Marine Harvest U14 Boys Riptide lead the standings with 34 points (11 wins, 1 loss, and 1 tie).  Next game for the U14 Riptide Boys is in Cowichan Sunday Nov. 29.
