Salt Spring United Girls U15 Silver Team Wins Tim Satterford Cup
|Full Name||Salt Spring United Soccer Club|
Salt Spring United Soccer Club is excited to announce that the Girls Silver U15 team, coached by Chris Jason, has won the finals of the 2020 Tim Satterford Cup (formerly known as the Lisa Cup) 5-1 against Peninsula on Saturday, February 8. The team played beautifully both defensively – holding their opponents to only one goal – and offensively scoring five goals against a pretty formidable defense. Up 3-0 at the half, the girls bound together at half time as a team, determined to secure the win for themselves and to bring the trophy back to Salt Spring. “Each and every player on this team contributed to this win,” Chris Jason commented on the accomplishment. “They should be enormously proud of the way they played out there.”
The Tim Satterford Cup competition is facilitated by the Lower Island Soccer Association to which Salt Spring United Soccer Club is an active member of. It is a single elimination competition which starts in October for teams in their respective leagues and played out throughout the first half of the season. The girls U15 Silver team will also complete in the district cup which takes place this April.
Congratulations to these girls for a fantastic effort and outcome.
