Junior girls Falcons go unbeaten at home tourney

It was a perfect weekend for the Lake City Falcons junior girls soccer team May 2-3, who finished first at their home tournament.

It was a perfect weekend for the Lake City Falcons junior girls soccer team May 2-3, who finished first at their first annual home tournament.

“They were great,” said junior girls coach Mike Brogan. “We just came together. They were very solid, and were an offensive threat out there. You could really see them developing as a team and they looked good.”

The Falcons defeated Nechako Valley and Mackenzie Friday, both by scores of 4-1. Then on Saturday the Falcons shutout Fort St. James, 5-0.

Falcons sniper Grace Outhouse scored six goals in three games in the tournament to lead all scorers, while Melissa Rispin kept the door shut in goal.

Brogan, who co-coached the team with Jodie Mason, added Rispin was the MVP in goal, and on defence Morgan Bloise and Vittoria Durfeld played well. Up front he said Grace, her sister, Faith Outhouse, Taylor Brink, Isabelle Call and Cassidy Herrick played strong tournaments.

Earlier in the season the Falcons travelled to Summerland for a tournament, winning one game and losing two.

“We hadn’t played a lot of games together at the first tournament in April but they played well,” Brogan said. “They were close games in the Summerland tournament and could have gone either way.”

He said Bailey Alexander earned MVP honours in the midfield, while Rispin, again, got the MVP in goal. Durfeld, Call, Grace and Bloise, he said, were strong up front.

Brogan said the future is bright for girls soccer at Lake City secondary.

“All in all I was very impressed with their development.”
