Senior Soccer Scores Island Berth

Monday, November 04, 2013 - By: Gord Horth & John Garvey

The North Island Senior Soccer playoffs saw the team play some of their best football of the season.

The first game saw BCS coming out firing & winning 4-0 against Highlands with Toby CH notching a hat trick (his 3rd of the season) & Josh S also finding the back of the net. Our second game was against top seeded Gulf Islands and although the boys had chances, it was the Islanders taking it 2-0. The next day found the boys in an upbeat mood and they overwhelmed the Ballenas opposition 5-0, with braces from both Tom S & Keaton S, and the single from Martin K.

Perhaps one of the grittiest performances of recent times was in the bronze medal game against a very talented Kwalicum side. With the game scoreless at half time, BCS went down a man after having a player sent off. Undaunted, the team found a second gear and took the game to Kwalicum with a opening goal taken through the tremendous pace of Phil M racing through their defense and drilling the ball home. The insurance goal came next off a tricky play worthy of the Premier League when Martin K back heeled the ball to an open Brendon K who, not to be outdone, back heeled the ball into goal.

Scoring 11 goals and only conceding 2 was testimony to the team’s success at the tournament. A very stingy defense, coupled with a creative midfield, allowed numerous chances for the forwards who were in fine form.

The team moves to the Island Playoffs Nov 5 & 6th at the University of Victoria.
