The U14 rep Thunder struck for a pair of impressive cup wins last weekend.
Last Saturday in the pouring rain Thunder was faced with the possibility of winning the North Shore Cup and qualifying as the district representatives for provincial play downs.
Both teams started off strong and looking for the win.
Defenders Melissa Iverson, Sienna Lewarne and Emily Bullen were outstanding and kept the ball as far away from the 18-yard line as possible. The few times balls made it past them, Emma Cooney and Ingrid Hansen were there to pound the ball up the field to midfielders Nisha Wells and Alyssa Rive, and then to outsider wingers Holly Piepjohn and Geordie Owen.
Late in the second half, a powerful corner kick from Pearl Deasey sailed though the mass of girls in front of the net to the far post where Lulu Kammerle one timed a left footer in the net for the win.
Sunday was a beautiful sunny day, and with the home field advantage, Thunder took to the field hoping for another win to become league champions this time.
The Thunder defence was on their game again with only a few shots on goalie Lydia Harvey-Lloyd who made each save look effortless. Wingers Sophie Fielder and Lucy Schick went for run after run up the field, shooting just shy of hitting the back of the net. Out of nowhere came Foofy Foody who saw a ball roll in front of the net and cracked it across the goal line. Next up was Georgie Aleong who, after a long run up the field, shot and scored, clinching the win at 2-0.
