Caufield Engraving Lambos and Williams’ Waskiwy Wabbits played to an exciting 2-2 tie in Under 18 girls House soccer playoff action Saturday afternoon at Marshall Field.

Jessica Okert opened the scoring for Caufield, but the Wabbits levelled the score only a few minutes later and went ahead on a scramble.

Caufield scored the only goal of the second half as Bailey Limb took a through ball, burying a top-corner blast from the edge of the 18.

Caitlin Kiss made a fine defensive play for Caufield in the late going, sweeping a loose ball off the line. Kendra Racine also had a strong game for Caufield on the back line.

The final pool games go tonight. The U18 girls semifinals go Saturday at noon, with Sunday’s Vernon Cup final also slated for noon, all at Marshall.

The Royal LePage Red Bulls split their last two U13 boys game, ending the regular season with a 4-2 loss Saturday to Ben Moore’s Royal LePage Blues.

David Heng (game MVP) scored both goals for the Red Bulls, with magical shots that the keeper had no chance on. Marcelo Suro and Connor Johnston set up the goals.

Gaman Singh, Nick Alveberg, Kieran Webster and John Bernakavitch were strong throughout, while hustler awards went to Shane Pelkey and Johnson.

In the first leg of the Vernon Cup Sunday, the Red Bulls shelled the Royal LePage Whites 8-1.

Three players scored their first goals of the year for the Red Bulls: Gavin Donald (2), Max Fenn and Johnston. Johnston added four assists and Donald had three.

Other goals came from Pelkey, Kye Fentimen and Dylan Henry, on a penalty shot. Hayden Broderick played strong defence along with Singh and big Josh Baker.

In U15 girls action, the Subway Sharks ambushed Subway Green Hornets 5-0 in the first game of the Vernon Cup.

The Sharks struck quickly when Maddie Powls converted a pass from Karley Geefs in the second minute. Latisha Baker followed up with two more quick goals.

The first came off another Geefs’ pass, while Katie MacGillivray set up the second with a through ball. Powls got her second of the game just before halftime off a MacGillivray corner that Carlee Meausette redirected to the far post.

The Green Hornets came out hard in the second half and got a strong defensive effort from Mary-Rose Cohen and good hustle from midfielder Eliese Smart.

In the dying seconds, Meausette was sent in alone by Nikki Watson and rang a shot off the post. Sarah Wiebe tucked in the rebound.

Cherish Ayers and MacGillivray shared the shutout. The Sharks got strong defence from Nicole Skidmore and Sarah Orr.

In other U15 action, the Subway Vanilla Ice came away with a 1-1 tie with the Subway Trackers.

Vanilla Ice struggled to trap the ball with the wet conditions but strong defence by Michelle Ockert, Taiya Duke, Kia Kaneda, Anita Splawinski and Carmen Pavlov, and stellar goalkeeping by Darian Newman, kept the scoring low.

Josie Kowoski lobbed a high shot over the Tracker keeper for the Vanilla Ice goal after a last push from forwards Dayna Whibley, Julia Wendt, Splawinski, Alicia Hill-Turner and Taylor DaSilva. Excellent support was given in the midfield by Camryn Sproule.

The final is Sunday, 3 p.m., at Marshall #4.

In late-reported U11 Girls Rep play, the United #1 crew tied Kelowna 3-3 after falling 4-1 to Kamloops.

Elena Gaskell showed great patience on the ball as she negotiated several defenders to feed Olivia McLennan for Vernon’s only goal in the loss.

Kamloops dominated play in the first half, but excellent defensive play by Carly Southam and Emily Thomas kept the Blazers at bay, while  keeper Erica Simpson held Kamloops to two.

In Game 2, Emilia Durfeld, Mia Dougan, and Chloee Richey worked the lines well, closing down Kelowna attacks, and consistently winning possession.

Early in the second half, Gaskell opened the scoring. McLennan made it 2-0 shortly after on a breakaway before Kelowna answered with two unanswered goals.

Vernon kept the pressure on, resulting in a through ball to Jayden Strachan who put Vernon ahead again until Kelowna responded with the equalizer.

A final attempt by United striker Nadia Smith had the fans on their feet, but the ball skidded just wide of the net.
