U18 Riptide on winning streak

Marine Harvest U18 Riptide soccer team continue to win.

Marine Harvest Upper Island Riptide U18 boys played their third league game this past Sunday, October 2 vs Lakehill/Gorge for the first time this season.

At halftime the game was still scoreless. After both teams rested and had pep talks with their coaches they came back to the field ready for a much more intense second half of the game.

Riptide’s Riley Fussell scored their much needed first goal of the game on a penalty kick. Midway into the second half of the game a well weighted pass from Keir Schovanek was received by Lyam Donetz who then slotted the ball into the bottom left corner which gave Riptide their second and final goal.

Goalkeeper Gary Thiara made some excellent saves to earn a shutout.

“Riptide carried possession for the majority of the game. All players stepped up for the occasion and contributed to the win” said coach Mike Rodgers.

Final score Riptide 2 Lakehill/Gorge 0.

No games are planned for the upcoming long weekend but the next scheduled VIPL game is vs Nanaimo October 16. Location and time to be determined.

The Marine Harvest Upper Island Riptide U18 Boy’s Soccer Team plays in the Vancouver Island Premier League (VIPL). The VIPL consists of high-level teams from the Lower Island Soccer Association and Upper Island Soccer Association. The U18 team is comprised of players from the Comox Valley, Campbell River, Quadra Island, Powell River and Port Hardy.
