Cowichan’s Doug Day Cup tourney comes to an end

The Doug Day Cup tournament came to an end for Cowichan’s senior women’s soccer team with a 2-1 loss to Gorge last Sunday.

The score was identical to the one from the meeting between the teams a week earlier – Cowichan’s only loss in the round-robin portion of the tournament. Cowichan opened the scoring last Sunday when Ashley Stultz dribbled the ball through the Gorge defence and buried it on the net. Gorge responded with two of their own before the first half was over.

Cowichan dominated the second half, but couldn’t find the equalizer.

"In the second half we were definitely playing better than the other team, doing some great passing and shutting down their offence," striker Nicole Pugh said. "We had a few other opportunities but couldn’t put the ball in the net."

With no games scheduled this weekend, Cowichan is waiting until next Monday to hear about the provincial tournament.
