 The L.V. Rogers Bombers left no doubt in anyone’s mind who the better team is in the Kootenays.

The Bombers rang up 25 goals in two games en route to capturing the Kootenay High School AA Girls’ Soccer Championship Saturday in Creston.

LVR claimed the title with a 12-1 romp over J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks of Trail.

The Bombers earlier blasted Prince Charles of Creston 13-1 in the tournament semifinal.

LVR now advances to the BC High School Girls’ Soccer Championship June 1-3 in Nelson.

Shianne Michalchuk led the Bomber offensive attack against the Hawks, scoring four times in the contest as LVR took control of the contest early and never looked back.

Jesemyn Vandonselasr, Emma Wheeldon and Riley Zondervan each added a pair of goals while Emily Taylor and Matteah Lorenzo each scored singles.

Against the Prince Charles, it was the Laurel Halleran, Wheeldon and Maya Ida each scoring three times to lead the Bombers.

Michalchuk added a pair while Jesemyn Vandonselasr netted a single.

Keeper Hannah Quinn was in goal for both games, surrendering a pair of goals.

LVR enters the 16-team provincial tournament next month as the defending champion, having won the title in 2016 in Campbell River with a 2-1 shootout victory over St. Thomas Moore of Vancouver.

J. Lloyd Crowe, posting a come-from-behind 4-3 win over David Thompson of Invermere, is the second Kootenay team entered in the provincial tournament. The Hawks scored twice on penalty kicks in the final 10 minutes of the game to steal the win.

The Bombers opened the season winning the Immaculata Tournament in Kelowna. LVR then finished with a 2-3 record at the high-calibre University of Victoria High School Girl’s Soccer Tournament in Victoria.

The Bombers posted wins over Glenlyon Norfork and Royal Bay, both Victoria teams.

Laurel Halleran was named LVR Tournament MVP.
