Offence leads Southridge girls to soccer victory
Carina Lauzon scored a hat-trick Thursday to lead the Southridge Storm to a convincing 6-1 win over the rival St. John Brebeuf Bears in the senior girls single-A Fraser Valley soccer final.
Southridge’s offensive attack – put on display in front of their home fans at the South Surrey school – was in high gear right from the game’s opening minute, as the home team jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first half.
In addition to Lauzon’s three, Southridge also got goals from Tanvir Aujla, Julia Lauzon and Shannon Fraser.
St. John Brebeuf scored their lone goal just a few minutes before halftime, when a shot from a bad angle – nearly along the end line – ricocheted off the Storm’s keeper and bounced into the net.
Both teams had previously qualified for provincials, scheduled for June 2-4 in Victoria.
