The Cariboo League gather in 100 Mile House to wrap up their season last weekend.
Each team played three games in some unfriendly weather, as both thunder storms and heavy rain showers plagued the weekend.
The U12 Denny Strikers boys had a mixed bag of a weekend with a win, a loss and a tie. They tied their first game against Williams Lake at 1-1. They lost against their second against Prince George 3-0. Their final game of the weekend they claimed a 1-0 win, once again against Williams Lake.
The U12 girls had a harder time of it on the weekend, losing all three of their game despite a strong showing.The girls lost on penalty kicks to the Williams Lake U12 girls, with a full time score of 1-1. Game two was much the same story, except full time ended scoreless. In game three, 100 Mile House managed to beat them in regulation time, just barely squeaking by with a 1-0 win over the Quesnel girls.
Despite the rough weekend, the girls played exceptionally well, controlling the ball and keeping it in the opposition’s end, only failing at capitalizing on chances.
The U14 girls ended the weekend with a bit of a mixed bag as well. They came out strong, with a 5-0 win over P.G., but then hit a wall in a 1-0 loss against 100 Mile House. In game three, the girls faced a particularly hard loss on penalty kicks against Williams Lake. The game ended with a 0-0 tie, despite the Denny’s Strikers control of the game. During regular play the Denny’s Striker’s tender was never tested. Unfortunately the girls couldn’t keep up the momentum in the shoot out.
The U16 girls came out of the weekend with three more wins. Game one against Williams Lake was won during regular time, with a 1-0. Game two proved to be more difficult, ending in a 0-0 tie. The girls, however, kept pushing and with goaltender Colleen Moorehouse not letting a single ball past, and shooters Kaitlyn Godsoe, Kyra Teetzen and Shayna Sales all managing to find the back of the net, the girls won it on penalty kicks. Game two, against the second Williams Lake team, proved to be an easier win, with a 2-0 making it the third shutout of the weekend fo Moorehouse.
The U18 boys had their playdowns in Williams Lake on the weekend. They started off well against Williams Lake, playing them to a 5-0 final in Quesnel’s favour. The Prince George boys, however, were not so easily handled.
“We were up 1-0 on them when they tied it 1-1 before half. The game went both ways for quite a while until we had one injured player and a bunch of tired players as we only had two subs for the day. PG ended up scoring later in the second half and kept up the momentum to win 4-1,” Coach Mike Page said.
