The West Coast FC Under-15 Storm girls soccer team placed second in the Coastal Cup finals, and will now move on to the provincial tournament.

The Coastal Cup championship was held at Aldergrove Athletic Park over the weekend, and the Storm lost 2-1 to the LI LI Bays United Ombres from  Vancouver Island.

Amanda Apps scored the game’s first goal  for the Storm with a long shot that tipped off the keeper’s hands into the top corner. The Storm was still up 1-0 at half time. Striker Kara Holbrook was constantly pressuring the Ombres defence and attacking on net, and the Storm had many shots on goal.

The Island team scored a tying goal early in the second half, and got its second on a penalty kick, which stood as the game winner.

The Storm advance to the provincials July 9-12 in Nelson.
