Bombers blast Lakers en route to Kootenay Soccer Zone title
The L.V. Rogers Bombers are off to the B.C. High School AA Girl’s Soccer Championships.
A day after the Bomber boys captured the Kootenay High School Rugby Zone title, the girls did the same — also in convincing fashion.
The Bombers routed David Thompson Lakers from Invermere 7-0 en route to the zone crown Thursday afternoon at the Lakeside Pitch.
Earlier in the day LVR blasted Stanley Humphries Rockers of Castlegar 6-0 to claim the three-team, round robin tournament.
Bekka Schrader led the Bomber charge against the Lakers with three goals while Morag Paterson, Abbie Bouchier-Willans, Erica Augsten and senior defender Brittany Wheeler added singles.
In the opening game against the Rockers, senior Andrea Stinson scored twice along with Paterson. Chloe Kuch and Keegan Paterson each scored single goals.
Keeper Kat Garbula was her steady self in goal to register two shutouts.
The Bombers travel to represent the Kootenay Zone May 31 to June 2 in Kamloops.
The tournament is hosted by Sahali Secondary and played at McArthur Island Park.
