Congratulations to the Girls Varsity soccer team for their recent wins against Meadowcreek (3-1) and Cross Keys (4-2). Four goals were scored by three different players in the Cross Keys victory - Savannah, Indigo and Jimelle with assists from Sky and Lauren. Cate had 11 saves. Excellent play from Campbell, Maya, Callie, Christina, Jenny, Bella, Ellie J, Ellie W, Helen, Marina and Melina. Keep up the good work ladies.


Boys Soccer

Last week, captain and forward Luke Narker's brilliant hat trick was not enough to save the Red Devils from a heartbreaking 3-4 loss to Meadowcreek. However, by last Friday, the Red Devils had reorganized their formation and came roaring back to crush Whitewater 5-2. Midfielder Connor Logue opened the scoring with a deft penalty, followed by a sweet hat trick from forward Hasib Fudaeel, and capped off by a decisive goal by Nate Jackson. Go Devils!
