2012 Provincials Roundup

At the recent Boys Provincials B Cup in Aldergrove-

u13 Boys  4th place finish (Head Coach Glen Barker, Assistant Coach Clay Rach, Manager Liz). This is the most successful Saanich Fusion boys team this season.
u18 Boys  6th place finish (Head Coach Bodo von Schilling, Manager Maureen). This team was recognized as the Fair Play Award winner in this age group.
Congratulations to these 2 teams. They represented our club very professionally on-and-off the field during the Provincial finals.

At the A Cup Provincials In Kamloops the u14 Girls rebounded from a difficult tournament start and finished strongly with a 3-1 win over Richmond to capture the Bronze medal.  Beset with injuries for much of the season it was a great characater-building performance for Steph Steiner’s team.  Natalie Koehn, Sophie Eckard and Stephanie Phipps notched the goals in the final game.

In Kelowna both the u13 girls and u16 girls won Bronze medals after convincing wins over teams from Chilliwack, the u13 girls winning 5-0 and the u16’s 3-0.   Both teams were a bit unlucky to have missed the Gold medal games after tough opening day losses against Southern Interior teams.  This was especially the case with the u13’s after some very strange refereeing decisions in their 2-3 loss to Kelowna United.  Provincial Gold medals would have been nice additions to the trophy cabinet for both teams, but they will have to make do with the LISA, Island and Coastal Cup Championships each of them won this past season.

Congratulations to all three girls teams on their achievements this season.
