of the Week
This week, Footballer of the
Week recognition goes to:
2003 VI Wave Girls
Coached by Amelia Ng and Madison Ashcroft the 2003 girls team is the Cinderella story of the BCSPL Fall Season. Headed into the playoffs as the #8 seed, the U15 girls knocked off the #1 seed AND 2018 U15 National Champions Mountain United. The very impressive 2-1 scoreline while on the road gave them all the confidence they needed to head into the Remembrance Day semi-finals. The Wave again travelled to the mainland where they took on 4th place Fusion FC. The game was a close battle including a few posts but the only goals to go in happened in the plenty shoot-out at the end of regulation. Saryn Knox was the hero of the day scoring to give her team the victory and great ferry ride home.
Congratulations to Lilly Wood, Claire Pontefract, Grace O’Regan, Brooke Evans, Jamie Coukell, Lily Mannall-Fretwell, Jaymee Scollon, Hayley Weeks, Nicole Burnett, Jillian McCue, Saryn Knox, Amanda Russell, Payton Rangel, Georgia Harte, Georgia McLean, Sydney Harrison, Maya Gibson and Jenna DeGreef (permit).
