Women’s soccer team keeping hopeful

Despite a second-straight 1-0 loss for Cowichan’s entry in Div. 1 of the Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association, head coach Marilyn Pugh remains optimistic.

Cowichan lost to Castaways last Friday, a week after falling to Vic West by the identical score. In both cases, the only goal came with less than two minutes left to play.

“We didn’t play well once again,” Pugh said. “We seem to be having a hard time getting the ball out of our own end without just kicking it and losing possession.”

The team has already been working on that aspect of the game in practice, and Pugh hopes to see better results soon. She noted that the team needs to improve when it has the ball, as well.

“We are not generating enough offence so we are not getting shots on goal, and the ones that we do take are too weak, soared over top the goal, or right at the goalie,” she said. Cowichan’s Over 30 B team fared much better, beating Sooke 4-1 last weekend. Both teams are off this week.
