Supra start

The Semiahmoo Supra are set to open the Womens Western Classic Finals this weekend, with a triple play, of sorts.

The team will play its first game Friday, 5 p.m., against Quebec at West Vancouver’s Ambleside Park, and on Saturday will face off against Alberta, at 2 p.m. at Ambleside.

The Supra’s third tilt is slated for Sunday, 11:30 a.m. versus Ontario.

In 2010, Semiahmoo was crowned B.C. champion of the women’s over-30 circuit.

One-goal win

In U17 Gold girls soccer action last weekend, the Semiahmoo Scorpions edged the Langley Shock 2-1.

Sarah Strachan scored both goals for the Scorpions, while Keyanna Russell, Rachelle Folk, Katarina Kyle and Taylor Glass were also dangerous up front, and continuously tested the Shock netminder.

Katie Filice, Lauren and Ally Robertson and Sarah Balneaves were excellent on defence, while midfielders Allegra Quadri and Ashley Simpson also stood out.


The South Fraser Storm – formerly Semiahmoo Storm – earned a hard-fought 2-0 shutout victory over Port Moody last weekend, in U16 Metro girls action.

The Storm were paced by a goals from Leigh Averill and Madison Dale, and according to head coach Tim Ferris, the team played “air tight defence” led by centre-backs Jillian Brockman and Monica Mahal.

Goalkeeper Hannah Jiwani recorded the shutout between the pipes, her second in a row.

Up front, Nikki Lacis, Victoria Singh and Meg Farmer also had great games, Ferris said.

The Storm currently sit atop the 12-team Metro standings.

Big win

Despite playing with only 11 players, the Semiahmoo Thrashers earned an 8-1 victory over the Surrey FC Rage Sunday at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Nicole Hansen led the offensive charge with three goals, Aimee Hayward and Paige Smith each potted a pair, and Viktoria Reiss rounded out the scoring. Leia Craig, at midfield, and Kristy Friisdalh also played well, said coach Shaun Smith.
