Cowichan Cougars lose close battle with Gorge

4-1 final score doesn’t tell the whole story

The Cowichan Cougars arguably held the edge over first-place Gorge in the early going of their over-30A women’s soccer match at Victoria’s Bullen Park last Sunday, but when the dust settled, Gorge’s strength allowed them to prevail 4-1.

The first scoring opportunity of the match belonged to Cowichan’s Jenna Waddy, whose goal-mouth chance was stopped by the Gorge keeper. Gorge scored two goals in the last three minutes of the first half and owned a slight lead going into the break.

Both teams had chances again when the second half got going. Courtenay McGeachy, filling in at keeper for the absent Sara Tweten, kept the score close with a great save off a rocket of a shot from a Gorge player. Savannah Wright and Stacey de Lusignan had chances for Cowichan, but were denied by the Gorge keeper.

Gorge made it 3-0 from a goal-mouth scramble before Tarah Robertson finished off a corner to get the Cougars on the board. Gorge added another one at the end of the match.

Cowichan sits sixth in the over-30A division with four wins and seven losses. The Cougars will play at home this Sunday against Vic West. The match at Evans Park begins at 10 a.m.
