The Stanley Humphries Senior Secondary School girls soccer team is currently fielding only 11 of its 17 players due to injuries but put on a spirited defence against a strong Nelson L.V. Rogers team Monday, April 22 in Castlegar.

The Castlegar team lost 5-0 but there was only so much goaltender Hayley Clemans-Gibbon, or the team in front of her, could do on a couple of shots. The fourth goal in particular, was a high floater that came down on a strange, sharp angle that just missed the gloves of Clemans-Gibbon.

The team won three of four on the road in Creston this past weekend. They won the last game against Fernie 2 – 0 and coach Branwen Hainsworth said they were down to just eight players due to a red cards and injuries.

“The girls showed a lot of determination and perseverance,” said Branwen.

The team is off to Mt. Sentinel Thursday, April 25 to play Rossland and Mt. Sentinel. Their next home game is Monday, May 29 when they face Rossland.
