Reynolds edged Oak Bay in the Ryan Cup under sunny skies last Thursday.

The Reynolds Roadrunners won 2-1 over the Oak Bay Breakers in a game that went to penalty kicks.

“The game was a very good battle between two extremely competitive teams,” said Oak Bay coach Brent Garraway.

Reynolds played a very organized system, making for a defensive standoff in the city championships. Both teams were missing a few players due to injuries.

“With the Island Championships on Monday and Tuesday, it’s a fine line between giving everything you have and still be healthy and prepared to compete for a B.C. berth only four days later,” Garroway said.

Hannah Cater, who “had probably her best game wearing the green and white stripes,” scored the lone regular time goal off an amazing assist from Sophie de Goede.

“Reynolds did very well in the penalty shots, scoring all four, while we missed two of our four,” Garraway said. “It’s disappointing that a game that competitive had to come down to penalty shots, but that’s the way soccer goes sometimes.”

The Ryan Cup is the city championship for A, AA and AAA senior girls soccer teams.  The Oak Bay team won the Campbell River Investors Cup the week before.

Oak Bay headed to Stelly’s secondary in Central Saanich for the AAA Island championships, set to finish Tuesday after News deadline.
