Breakers wind up eighth in B.C.

Oak Bay senior girls allow only four regulation goals at provincials, Island Championships and Ryan Cup

Oak Bay High’s Sophie De Goede gets past a foe from Vancouver’s Sir Winston Churchill secondary during early play in the AAA senior girls provincial championships May 28 at the University of Victoria.

The Oak Bay Breakers couldn’t follow through on a quick start at the B.C. AAA senior girls soccer championships.

After opening with a pair of wins, the Breakers fell 1-0 to Panorama Ridge in the semifinal.

“Unfortunately, we couldn’t get the right bounce for the rest of the tournament,” said Breakers coach Brent Garraway.

Oak Bay completed the tournament with a 1-0 loss to McMath followed by a 1-0 shootout loss to Argyle to finish in eighth spot in the province.

“It’s too bad as we had only given up four goals throughout all of the Ryan Cup, Island Championships and B.C. Championships,” said Garraway. “I’m extremely proud of the girls, especially my amazing Grade 12s.  They’ve represented Oak Bay amazingly, both on and off the pitch.”

The Breakers opened the provincials with a 2-0 win over Sir Winston Churchill, with Leigha Russell and Maddie Trimmer providing the scoring, followed by a 1-0 win over South Delta on the strength of Holly Goodacre’s marker.
