Strikers face Sooke in semi-final game at home

Salt Spring United’s U14 girls soccer team will play in a semi-final game in front of a home crowd this Saturday, Jan. 19.

The Salt Spring Strikers will host a Sooke team — one of its biggest rivals — at Portlock Park beginning at 12:30 p.m.

The Strikers currently sit in second place in league standings and would qualify for the finals in February with a win on Saturday. Islanders are encouraged to come out and cheer the girls on to victory.

The Strikers are coached by Chris Jason.
