Scorpions keep on rolling

Youth soccer

The Scorpions put together their most complete game of the season last Saturday against the Marpole Cheetahs in East Vancouver with an 8-0 win.

Jordan Kammerle took a corner kick for the Scorpions and placed the ball on the head of Liam Rankin, who scored the first of the game.

Soon after, Ben Luporini set up Duncan Armstrong, who got a quick strike on the ball and the Scorpions’ second goal.

The Cheetahs could not find a solution for the Scorpions’ passing, but got another attack from a goal kick, but goalkeeper Tristan Tidder gobbled up the ball and sent it back to the centre line. As the first half progressed, Jordan passed the ball to Everett August, who placed a strong shot past the Cheetahs’ keeper. Keegan Inkster scored the last goal of the half, sending a long high shot over the frustrated goalkeeper. 

The second half was much the same as the first, as the Scorpions continued to show the Marpole team how last year’s gold division league champions can pass.

Gabe Goerzen made a quick move and a swift pass to Jordan, who fed Liam Rogers, who scored the fifth of the game. Liam continued his strong match, assisting the next goal scored by Everett.

The relentless pressure continued. Cole Cooney initiated the next scoring play, sending the ball the width of the field to Finn, who found Duncan, who offered the ball up to Jordan for a shot that was the seventh of the game.

The last goal of the game, again, came from Quin Towert off a pass from Bradley.  Tristan Tidder recorded his second straight shutout, as the win moved the Scorpions into a tie for first place in the standings.

U13 girls

It was a dark, windy, rainy Sunday in Chilliwack when the Thunder beat the Chilliwack Attack.

With illness and injury plaguing the Thunder, the team found themselves down by a goal, but determined defenders Emma Cooney, Nisha Wells, Geordie Owen, Melissa Iverson and Lulu Kammerle kept their team in the game with the help from goalie Lydia Harvey-Lloyd

After the half-time snack and a little pep talk, Thunder came to life in the second half when Georgie Aleong shot a painfully slow rolling ball that crossed the goal line to tie the game.

Midfielders Foofy Foody, Ingrid Hansen, Kiah Duffy, Sienna LeWarne, Sophie Fiedler, Hollie Piepjohn and Hollie Gray-Pearl held their ground, and a kick from centre-midfielder Alyssa Rive sent Lucy Schick flying up the middle on a breakaway to crack the ball into the top left corner of the net to win the game and keep Thunder in first place.
