The South Kam Titans shaded the Seaton Sonics 2-1 in the Okanagan Valley Junior Girls Soccer League playoff final Saturday at DND.

The South Kam Titans shaded the Seaton Sonics 2-1 in the Okanagan Valley Junior Girls Soccer League playoff final Saturday at DND.

The Titans went undefeated on the season, stopping the West No. 2 seeded Valleyview Vikings of Kamloops 3-0 in the semifinals.

The No. 2 North Sonics, coached by Shelley Henry, surprised the top-ranked VSS Panthers 2-1 in the other semis.

South Kamloops opened the scoring in the 25th minute on a Marie Claire Marshall lob shot.

Seaton levelled the score in the 50th minute on a tricky little shot by striker Brooke Berube, who was set up by Kalli Hamilton-Gee after her long sprint down the starboard sidelines.

The Titans replied four minutes later on a beautiful arching shot by Marshall which caught the top left corner over keeper Shawna Bradley.

Bradley was voted the Most Outstanding Keeper in the six-team playdowns. The Titans stopped the Sonics 4-0 in preliminary play Friday afternoon at MacDonald Park.

The Sonics had two great chances in the last minutes, including Mason Christensen, including an in-direct free kick by Christensen after a nasty foul by a Titan.

The Sonics got goals from Christensen and Evangeline Koshure in their semifinal victory over VSS. Lailah Akkurt was stellar on defence, while Alyssa Racine was particularly pesky and effective at centre midfield and the speedy Ava Haldane was flying all day long.

Valleyview took third spot by grounding VSS 4-1.
