Winning weekend for girls

The Cariboo League Quesnel girls came back from 100 Mile House Victorious.

The Cariboo League came together for it’s second time in 100 Mile, in what turned out to be a successful weekend for the Quesnel Denny’s Strikers.

The girls’ teams did particularly well, all three of them finishing the weekend with two wins and no losses.

The U12 Girls Denny’s Strikers meshed well their second weekend out.  They finished with two shut outs, winning 5-0 over PG’s U11 team and 2-0 over the 100 Mile House U12 girls.

“Both games they controlled most of the play with good possesion and offensive pressure.  The defence did well keeping the opposition in the other half of the field,” coach Gilbert Schotel said.

After allowing an early goal to the Williams Lake U13 girls they fought back and controlled the rest of the game. The final was 9-1 in Quesnel’s favour.

Their second game was against the 100 Mile Host team , who were determined to show better at home than their loss to Quesnel last weekend. However, the Quesnel defence and goal tending was solid and Quesnel came away with a 2-0 victory.

The U14 team’s first game was against Williams Lake. The score was 2-1 for Quesnel with goals from Kyra Teetzen amd Emmalee Pitcher. The second game was against 100 Mile House  with the same outcome. Kyra Teetzen and Emmalee Pitcher were, once again, the scorers in the game.

“It’s a good practice for the tournament in Kamloops on the long weekend,” coach Iain Brown said.

The boys finished the weekend with mixed results.

The U14 boys split their games, one in 100 Mile House in the morning and one in Quesnel in the afternoon, with two PG teams. They managed to win the morning match, but lost in the afternoon.

On Saturday the QuesnelU16 team (with some 14 and 17 year old imports) played Smithers’ U16/17 team twice. They lost both games, 3-0 and 3-1, with Aeryk Drewcock scoring the lone goal.

“The first game was dominated by Smithers, however the second game we were unlucky to lose despite the score.  It was a much closer game,” coach Kam Dosanjh,said.

The boys went on to play another game on Sunday against the Prince George U16 ‘A’ team.

“It turned out to be a very entertaining affair, with lots of chances on both sides,” Dosanjh said.

The game ended in a 2-2 draw with Pierre Errickson-Smith scoring off a set piece, and Liam McIlvenna scoring off a penatly shot.
