The Thompson Okanagan Football Club U13 Girls bowed 4-3 to Mountain FC from Burnaby/North Shore in EA Sports B.C. Premier Soccer League action Sunday at Beasley Park in Lake Country.

The team features only two Vernon girls – Cayleigh Graham and Caleb Pope – and Graham made history when she scored the franchise’s first goal early in the first half.

Graham intercepted a Mountain FC defender’s pass, deked past the one remaining defender and used a solid strike high into the net.

Mountain came back strong to take a 2-1 lead, until a handball resulted in a Thompson Okanagan penalty shot tying the score. After again falling behind, Graham put a ball through to a winger at the edge of the six-yard box tying the game again at 3-3.

Mountain FC netted the winner in injury time with seconds left. Pope, a keeper, is expected to start against Surrey in Cloverdale this Sunday.
