The Oak Bay Breakers turned in a dominant performance at the Vancouver Island senior girls soccer championships.

Oak Bay knocked off Stelly’s 5-1 in Tuesday’s championship match.

“Stelly’s is a very good team, they had the No. 1 ranking in the province for a while,” said Oak Bay coach Brent Garraway, who credited “hard work more than anything” for the Breakers’ success.

Grade 9 Anelise Kara Kostas notched three goals for Oak Bay with Meaghan Kivell and Holly Goodacre supplying singles.

The Breakers earned their way into the finals with a 2-0 win over Dover Bay and 1-0 shutout of Reynolds. Caroline Crossley scored on a gorgeous header against Dover Bay with the other marker coming from Kivell, while Goodacre supplied the lone goal against Reynolds.

The Breakers now advance to the B.C. AAA senior girls championships May 28 to 30 at Stelly’s.

“We always build toward this point of the year. The whole goal is to get to Islands and win Islands and then get to B.C.’s,” said Garraway.
