Riptide U14 Boys unlock Cowichan in 8-0 drubbing

Some great give and goes in the attacking third of the pitch enabled them to get loads of scoring chances.

U14 Boys Riptide dominated Cowichan 8-0 with goalkeeper Delton Kruell achieving another shutout on Sunday.

“Good performance by the lads,” Coach Stephen Hall said.

“Today we saw us utilize our pace and superior passing skills to unlock the oppositions defence.

Some great give and goes in the attacking third of the pitch enabled us to get loads of scoring chances.

Another shut out for our squad and some solid efforts from our back four and holding mid fielders.”

The Riptide’s rotating defenders (Jakob Tortorelli, Brayden Hues, Scott Gilfillan, Joshua Kalhous, Macyn Leopkey Johnson) and rotating holding midfielders (Sam Purcell, Andrew Petrovcic, Cameron Bell) continuously intercepted Cowichan advances and quickly transitioned from defensive play to attacking.

The first half of the game saw the Marine Harvest U14 Boys score three goals. The first  goal was from Alonso Cortez and the next two were scored by Spencer Fleming.

Fergus Hall made the assists for all threegoals.

Marine Harvest Riptide kept the foot on the gas pedal during the second half and produced another five goals.

Goal scorers were Corban Collett, Fergus Hall, Brayden Hues and two for Jerod Timothy.

Assists were made by Corson Arbour, Fergus Hall, and Cameron Bell.

Riptides U14 Boys play in Victoria next Sunday at noon versus Gorge/Lakehill.
