The Lake City Falcons took on one of the top five ranked girls’ teams in the United States last weekend.

On Friday, the Falcons were matched with the Kent Crusaders, from Kent, Washington. They were a very large team, with lots of big, powerful, Samoan girls.

Our girls played a lot of defense, and were penned in their own end for most of the first half. At the end of the first half it was Kent 12, Lake City 0.

Our second half goal was to score a try and play out of our half of the field and saw success when Laura Pfleider completed a 20-metre run to score the Falcon’s first try.

The Lake City girls continued to work hard, but could not crack the Crusader defense for a second time, with a 22-5 loss.

Lake City’s second game was against the forth ranked, AA school, Valleyview of Kamloops. The Falcons came out strong, and scored early with try from Grade 9 player Emma Feldinger.

The girls continued to apply pressure throughout the game, and kept the majority of the play in the other team’s end.

The final score was Lake City 29, Valleyview 5.

The girls’ final game of the tournament was against L.V. Rogers, of Nelson, BC. The game started off with the Falcons pressuring their opponents at their 22 metre line. After a couple of phases of play, Laura Pfleider scored her third try of the weekend. A little later, with continued pressure, Tasha Johnson pulled in the defense, and set up winger, Taylor Sager for a try. Laura Pfleiderer converter one try in the half, so that Lake City lead 12-0 at the half.

Early in the second half, Roger’s physical play got the close to the Williams Lake goal line. After a penalty against the opposition, Laura Pfleiderer, went quick with a tap penalty, and ran 80 metres to score her fifth try of the weekend. A second long run by Carleigh Walters led to another try. Nelson continued to pressure and put their only try in the Lake City corner. Pfleiderer finished the game with another huge run, that led to Taylor Sager’s second try of the weekend. Final score Lake City 29, L.V. Rogers 5.

The Falcons’ provincial Seven’s team heads to Victoria to participated at the Provincial Championships at the University of Victoria, and to take in the World Women’s Seven’s tournament, featuring Canada’s Kayla Moleschi.
