SRT girls go undefeated through soccer season

The Samuel Robertson Technical’s junior girls soccer team took home the league title this week.

The Samuel Robertson Technical’s junior girls soccer team took home the league title this week.

The Titans finished the regular season with a record of 7-0.

The team will head into the Fraser Valley Championships this week as one of the top seeds.

SRT’s success came from scoring a league-high 32 goals and only allowing three against.

SRT capped off their season with an exciting 2-1 win against cross-town rivals Maple Ridge senior secondary.

SRT had the league title wrapped up going into this game but vying for an undefeated season, the atmosphere was like a playoff game.

SRT carried most of the play and had the majority of the chances on net. It took a brilliant run by Katelyn Erhardsen with one minute left in the game to give SRT the 2-1 victory.

The Titans were led all season by grade 10’s Erhardsen and Jennifer Lord.  The latter was one of the main reasons for only allowing three goals against.  She was the leader of the SRT back line, and a skilled player who makes great decisions on the ball,  and is excellent in the air.

In the middle of the park the Titans were led by Erhardsen, who plays in the high performance league for Mountain F.C. She has really worked at her craft over the last two years, and has become one of the best players in the province in her age group.

Another reason for the team’s success is the school’s high performance soccer academy taught by former Technical Director of Golden Ears Soccer Club and new member of Magnusson Ford Mariners (Abbotsford) technical staff John Sneddon.
