Riptide U15 Girls continue winning streak

Riptide faced Gorge/Lakehill at Willow Point Park in Campbell River on the weekend

Momentum continues for the Marine Harvest Riptide U15 Girls soccer team who won their fifth game in a row with a shut-out on Saturday.

Riptide faced Gorge/Lakehill at Willow Point Park in Campbell River on the weekend, hoping to improve on their previous match up in early September, when Riptide won 1-0. Riptide’s defensive play remained strong and the offensive line was able to find a sweet spot this time, ending this game with a 4-0 win.

But that doesn’t mean it was an easy game. Riptide Captain, Lauren Wigard noted that, “Gorge fought hard and they aren’t a team we should take for granted. I am very proud of how we played this weekend; we started out strong, lost our composure in the middle, but we pulled ourselves together in the second half and stuck to our game plan.”

Wigard’s affection for her team is evident. “I’m so lucky to have these strong dedicated girls as my team mates and I can tell it’s going to be a good season.”

This game marked a special “first” of the season for three Riptide’s players. Autumn Lewis made her mark with two assists, Assistant Captain, Aisha Hunter-Bellavia, celebrated her first goal this year, and with much excitement, Riptide Captain, Lauren Wigard, saw her efforts realized with an assist and her first two goals as a U15 player.

Marine Harvest Riptide U15 Girls play their next game away against Saanich on Saturday. For more information, please visit Riptide 2001 Girls on Facebook.
