Soccer girls kick to third place finish

The team is still tallying the total but fear they may come up shy of the $10,000 target for cancer causes

Oak Bay’s senior girls soccer team finished third in B.C.

“I’m ecstatic with third,” said coach Brent Garraway. “It’s a good accomplishment for the girls.”

They lost to Delta in the semi final and defeated Panorama Ridge in the bronze medal game.

Holly Goodacre continued her top-scorer ways with five goals over the tournament. Teammate Caroline Crossley missed the bronze medal game to compete at track and field provincials.

“I definitely wouldn’t be able to do what some of the girls were able to do,” Carraway said, clearly impressed with the players who participated in both provincial competitions held on the same weekend.

With only four returning starters this season, it took some serious teamwork to get to that point. Much of the dedication came from an off-field goal, to raise $10,000 for cancer research.

The team is still tallying the total but fear they may come up shy of that target.
