The Williams Lake U12 Female Storm put on a clinic this past weekend at the Quesnel Indoor Soccer tournament, winning gold and going undefeated in the process.
The Storm began the weekend defeating Williams Lake’s U11 girls, 3-0, despite a great effort from the younger side. Under-11 keeper Brityn Hinsche made some big saves, keeping her club in the contest until the end.
Scoring for the U12 Storm were Jerika Meldrum, Kristyna Stanislaus and Tiana Brenner.
Next, the Storm took on Quesnel’s U12 girls team in a tightly-contested match. After regulation solved nothing, the game went to a five-player shootout.
Meldrum and Paige Outhouse both buried their attempts, while Williams Lake goaltender Ali Waterhouse shut the door to lead the Storm to their second win of the tournament.
The victory gave the Storm a bye to the gold-medal match where they once again ran into Quesnel’s U12 side. Both lakecity keepers, Devin Rushton and Waterhouse, shut the door on Quesnel, while Williams Lake striker Brenner opened the floodgates for three goals in the second half.
