SHSS girls ‘a bit rusty’ but looking forward to season

The Stanley Humphries Secondary School (SHSS) girls’ soccer team kicked their way to a ninth-place finish at an Osoyoos tournament on the weekend.

The Stanley Humphries Secondary School (SHSS) girls’ soccer team kicked their way to a ninth-place finish at an Osoyoos tournament on the weekend.

Coach Branwen Hainsworth said the team was “a bit rusty” out of the gate with losses to Credo Christian High School from Langley (4-3) and Princess Margaret High School from Penticton (1-0).

Hainsworth said the game against Princess Margaret could have gone either way, but SHSS then joined the C-flight for Saturday after the losses.

“We beat Grand Forks 2-1 with two great goals from Hailey McLean and then we beat Oliver 3-1 with another two goals from Hailey McLean and one from Kim Diender, an exchange student from the Netherlands,” Hainsworth said.

The SHSS team continued their season this week with a game against Rossland on Wednesday; results weren’t available by press time.
