A pair of Ladysmith soccer players are finishing their high school careers on a high.

Katelyn Horsley and Aliyah Griffin are members of the VIPL Storm U18 girls team that won the Coastal A Cup, May 3 in Aldergrove.

Horsley scored the Storm’s lone goal in 1-0 win over the North Vancouver Renegades.

The team — comprised mostly of players from Parksville and Nanaimo — made it to the final by winning the Islands, then beating out two Lower Mainland teams.

The team has played most of its 2014-2015 season with only one spare and no designated goalie due to injuries.

The girls will end years of playing together with a trip to the Provincials in mid July in Surrey.
