The Cowichan Outlaws were the dominant team in their Stephanie Shergold Cup round-robin opener last Sunday, but it didn’tshow in the result.

The Div. 2 Lower Island Women’s Soccer League team outplayed Prospect Lake in the match at the Sherman Road turf, but endedup on the wrong side of a 2-0 final score.

Tiara Enger appeared to score when she beat the goalie with a corner kick, but the referee missed the goal from his vantagepoint and Prospect Lake wasn’t about to correct him.

“The girls played perfectly,” coach Neall Rowlings said. “They carried the play 70 per cent of the time, but just couldn’t capitalizeon their luck with the exception of the missed goal. Hillary Fisher had the best game of her life and so did Heather Morson.

“The girls know the results aren’t fair and are buying into the new style of play well.”

The Outlaws continue the Shergold Cup tournament with a road game against Bays United this Sunday.
