Girls’ soccer provincial trip

  • Jun. 16, 2004 7:00 p.m.

Submitted by the QC school–Congratulations to the QC Secondary Senior Girls Soccer Team for their 9th place finish in the Provincials. Our team lost their first two games to Victoria and Rossland on the first day of the tournament. Their dream of winning the Provincials was gone, but despite these losses the girls were determined to win and represent the islands with their very best play. That evening at a team meeting, the girls reminded themselves of this years team motto “Be in shape, play tough, and play with heart”, and that they did. The girls won all three of their next games against Fraser Lake, Duncan and Kamloops without allowing a single goal to be scored against them.
Our senior goalie Katie Nickerson enjoyed these three shut out games to tie her sister Sarah’s Provincial shut out record. However unbelievably, in our game against Fraser Lake, Katie only touched the ball once in the entire game due to the superb full back play by Renee, Verica, Breanna, Ashley, Norah, and April.
Congratulations Nicole Whittle for being awarded the Commissar’s Award. One player from each team receives this award for their outstanding contributions to the team throughout the year and during the tournament. The junior members of the team will sorely miss four departing senior players: Katie Nickerson, Dana Myshrall, Ashley Muller, and Angeline Nelson.
We wish them well, and Howa for being true leaders for all the younger players.
Our team owes ‘thank yous’ to many people for supporting our team on our trips to Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Naksup, and our hosting of the North West Zone Championships in Port Clements: QCSS, School District #50, Gwaii Trust Society, Sk’aadgaa Naay Elementary

And a special thank you to the islands’ soccer community who came out to support our team in the North West Zone Championship game in Port Clements.
