Mount Bou and KSS senior girls soccer lose out in semi-finals at U Vic

Two high school senior girls teams may meet this weekend as KSS hosts tournament

It was a good weekend of high school soccer for several Kelowna clubs at a 24 team tournament at the University of Victoria on the weekend.

Both the Mount Boucherie Bears and Kelowna Secondary School senior girls teams played well at the event, featuring most of the top senior girls schools in the province.

The Bear and Owls both lost in semi-final games at the tournament and would have faced each other in a game to decide third and fourth position. However with weather concerns for the trip back home, the teams decided it was better to cancel the game and head home.

The teams will likely get a crack at each other this coming weekend when KSS hosts its invitational soccer tournament.

As for the Victoria weekend, the Bears earned its trip to the semi-final with three straight wins.

MBSS opened with a 4-1 win over South Delta, the team that won the tournament last season. Breanna Anderson and Haylee Lakovic each scored twice in the game to lead the offensive attack.

Against Parkland Secondary from Victoria, the Bears won 6-2 as Lakovic put home four goals with singles coming from Olivia Biccum and finally Jordan Tassone.

In an incredibly physical battle between two good teams the Bears edged Burnsview Secondary from Delta 2-1 as Tassone and Lakovic did the scoring in a win that sent the Bears to the semi-final against Lambrick Park from Victoria.

The Bears controlled possession of the ball during the semi final and opened the scoring with Lacovic set up Tassone for a 1-0 lead. But Lambrick Park scored with five minutes left, which sent the game to a shootout where the Lambrick Park goalie made some good stops and the Delta school went on to win.

Bears midfielder Laina Burton, a Grade 12 who played tremendously well, was named the MBSS tournament MVP.

KSS also made it to the semi-final in the tournament but lost to Glenlyon Norfolk from Victoria. The Owls will host an eight team soccer tournament beginning Friday. KSS, MBSS, RSS and OKM are all taking part.
