Senior Girls shut out of top spot

The Nakusp Secondary School senior girl’s soccer team jump-started their season with a fantastic finish at the Kootenay Cup Challenge.

The Nakusp Secondary School senior girl’s soccer team jump-started their season with a fantastic finish at the Kootenay Cup Challenge in Creston, B.C.  The NSS squad achieved a shut out in the round robin play, with not a single goal scored against them. In the first game the girls met the host team Prince Charles Secondary from Creston. Despite the rain, NSS quickly started things off with a great goal from Nicole Hawe. Next goal came from a penalty kick that Sarah Holden made no mistake on. Avery Palmer and Shea Weighill each added one in the second half to take a 4-0 win. Hawe was named Player of the Game for her winning goal.

The second game was against J.V. Humphries from Kaslo. The defence worked hard at keeping the opposition out of their end, and in the second half Maddy Palmer popped one in on a through-ball from Weighill, winning the game 1-0. Claire Jackson received Player of the Game for being a force on the strong defensive line.

Saturday morning the team met Selkirk Secondary from Kimberly. Maddy Palmer started things off with the first goal, followed by two goals from Weighill, making it a 3-0 win. Shea Weighill was named player of the game.

The Nakusp squad met Rossland Secondary in the finals. Unfortunately, things didn’t go their way, and they were defeated taking second place in the tournament.

“I’m extremely happy with how all the girls played in their first tournament of the season,” said coach Rhonda Palmer, who is looking forward to the home tournament on May 4th and 5th.
