Scorpions win Thanksgiving tournament

The Semiahmoo Scorpions had plenty to be thankful for on the weekend, after claiming top spot in the Richmond Thanksgiving Day Tournament.

The Scorpions won the U17/U18 division, beating the U18 Campbell River Tidal Wave 3-2 on penalty kicks in the championship game.

Earlier in the tournament, Semiahmoo lost to Campbell River, 2-1.

Earlier in the tournament, Semi beat CCB Elite 5-0, and the U18 Richmond Thunder by a 1-0 score.

Goalkeeper Amy Cornish was “a rock” between the pipes for Semaihmoo, according to coach Bob Balneaves, while a host of others also played well, including Rachelle Folk and Sarah Strachan, who chipped in with timely goals throughout the tourney.
