The Golden Ears Vipers finished their season in typical winning fashion, as they beat the South Delta Inferno to take the U-14 girls’ silver Coastal Cup earlier this month. With the win, the Vipers finish their season undefeated, with three titles to their credit.
Goalie Emma Hitchings let in just four goals in a total of 27 games all season long. The Vipers showed amazing strength all year starting with the speed of their strikers, Ashley Taylor, Abisayo Ajibike, and Polly Wedge driving the momentum.
Midfielders, Onelly Amarasinghe, Mikayla Quinn, Jessica Thomas, Elyse Purton, Lexie Chessa and Ana del Valle held the games with power, stealth and a great show of teamwork as they consistently used plays and passes the keep their opponents at bay.
Defending their end at all times and protecting the goal were the backs, Rebecca Milner and Hallee Shearer and the central defence Jill Atkinson, Emily Tillotson, Alex Senchyna and Simrin Sivia, whose steadfast play was key in the teams overall success.
In addition to winning the U-14 silver Coastal Cup, the Vipers were also their league champions and took top spot at the Thanksgiving Day Classic earlier in the season.
The team was coached by Carl Shearer and Mike Wedge.
