East Kings girls U-15 team wins sil­ver at provin­cials

Valley Journal Advertiser - - SPORTS -

The U-15 East Kings Tier II Girls’ soc­cer team re­cently cap­tured sil­ver medals at pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships.

The highly com­pet­i­tive con­test was held in North Syd­ney Sept. 8 and 9.

The girls had a suc­cess­ful over­all record of 17-6-1, in­clud­ing reg­u­lar league games, two tour­na­ments and provin­cials.

Teams in the Val­ley league were strong, with some very close matches. Both the East Kings quar­ter-fi­nal match and semi­fi­nal match went to a shootout.

At provin­cials, in the semi­fi­nal game, East Kings de­feated the Val­ley league cham­pi­ons, Up­per County, to earn their spot in the gold-medal game. The score was tied at 2-2 in reg­u­la­tion. Af­ter two 10-minute over­times, the game went to dot shots.

They ul­ti­mately lost to Port Hawkesbury’s High­land team, a squad that went un­de­feated in the tour­na­ment.
