The L.V. Rogers Bombers proved they are no match for Kootenay competition, outscoring the opposition 14-1 at the Mount Baker Wild High School Girl’s Soccer Tournament this past weekend in the East Kootenay City.

The only blemish for the Bombers came during a 2-1 win over Selkirk Storm of Kimberley.

In all other games against Prince Charles Comets of Creston, host Wild and Sparwood, LVR rode the stellar goalkeeping of Emma Gregorich  to post shutouts.

LVR opened the tournament with a 3-0 win over Prince Charles.
Allie Zondervan, Camile Gebhart and Jena Wheeldon scored for LVR with Wheeldon’s marker coming on a header from a corner kick by veteran captain Erica Augsten.

The Bombers then edged Kimberley with striker Darian Voisard and Augsten scoring, the latter on a penalty kick.

LVR then rocked host Mount Baker  4-0 in the snow storm.
Augsten scored three times with a single going to Wheeldon.

In the final contest, the Bombers dumped Sparwood 5-0.

Maddie Sternloff scored twice with Tara Yowek and Wheeldon adding singles.

The team currently has 24 members and rotates players for each tournament.

Many of the LVR players are also members of the Soccer Quest Regional program and train all year round.

Next tourney  is in Summerland on April 25-26.
