NSS Juniors socked it to ‘em in Creston tourney

Ladies’ Soccer has started in a big way for both Nakusp Secondary Junior and Senior teams.

Ladies’ Soccer has started in a big way for both Nakusp Secondary Junior and Senior teams.

The teams participated in their first tournament of the season at the Kootenay Cup in Creston B.C. on April 20 and 21, with the Junior ladies (grades 8-10) coached by Cheryl Black taking first place in their category.

Game one, which pitted NSS against Creston, ended 3-1 for Nakusp. Scoring was accomplished by Kira Streliev (2) and Ellen Weatherhead (1).  With strong efforts from the whole team, all ladies played very defensively, and the net-minding was amazing. Keeping their heads in the game and their eye on the ball, positioning was bang on.

Game two saw NSS take on Golden; the game ended in a 5-0 victory for Nakusp. Midfield and Forwards (you know who you are) held this game in Golden’s end all throughout the hour of play, feeding our  strikers Kira Streliev (2), Leah Holden (2) and Ellen Weatherhead (1).

In game three NSS went head to head with Rossland. It was a huge victory for the junior ladies, as their triumph over Rossland had been a long time coming. The game ended in a 2-0 finish for NSS.  Defensive fullbacks, sweeper and stopper must be commended as well as Keeper Adriel Goodman. Scorers in this game were Jamie Godtmark and Leah Holden.

Tournament MVP kudos went to Kira Streliev, Leah Holden and Jamie Godtmark.

“All the ladies played with skill and determination,” said Coach Cheryl Black, “I am so impressed with you all.”
