Under-13 Girls

Kelowna United’s Under-13 girls defeated Revelstoke 3-0, coming on strong and controlling the game from the start. Angelia Ostrom opened the scoring with assists from Danika Lee and Kiera Baldwin. The girls continued to maintain control of the ball with great passing and Lee scored the second goal of the game with assists from Courtney Peissard and Paige Krivoshein. Peissard added the final goal just before the half, assisted by Paige Krivoshein and Lee.

Under-16 Girls

The Kelowna U-16 girls played their second league game of the season against the Shuswap Select U16 Girls at the Mission turf field on Sunday morning, defeating Shuswap 5-0. The first half saw the Kelowna girls control the play with excellent passing and strong defence. Casey Loudoun scored the opening goal off a throw-in from Cassidy Collins.

In the second half, Kelowna poured on the offense and played solid defense. Victoria Dauncey-Elwood scored on penalty kick to make the score 2-0 before Loudoun scored two straight and Jill Robertson added the final tally.

Under-11 Saints (boys)

The Saints dominated the Shuswap Under-11 boys for most of the game, earning a 4-0 win.

In the first half Chad Dumka initiated a play from the backline with a pass to Daniel Messent who made a great run on the right flank that ended up with the first goal of the game. Minutes later a free kick was awarded to the Saints after Nick Bigattini got tripped outside the box. Adrian Delgado took the free kick delivering a hard shot to the right top corner increasing the count to 2-0. Gregor Smith added the third and fourth goals of the match in the second half.

In the Saints second game of the day, Kelowna and Kamloops Under-11 boys team played to a 3-3 tie.
