Sylvan Lake’s U14 girls soccer team completed a successful season with 18 wins including playoffs.
The girls finished second overall after playoffs, won bronze medals at Camrose Night Classic June 7-9, won gold medals in the Central Alberta Soccer Association final against Camrose June 25, won provincial qualifiers held in Stettler, against Camrose (in the final) June 21-23, and won bronze medals at the U14 girls rural provincials in Edson July 5-7.
Coach Glen Holly said, “the girls provided ‘stellar’ defence all season long. Up front were our two powerhouse ‘strikers’, Megan Steenbergen and Shelby Bickley, who had 27 and 15 goals respectively.
“The two goaltenders, AJ Williamson and Gillian Holly, kept the girls in the game on more than one occasion.
“Great commitment from all 20 teammates was displayed and they played well beyond their years,” said Holly. “Much soccer success for Sylvan Lake for years to come with these young ladies.”
“Thank you to all the parents and to Sylvan Lake Blizzard Soccer Association for their support this year.”
On behalf of the parents, I’d like to give a big thank you to Glen Holly for coaching these young ladies.
