The Caledonia Kermodes celebrate their zone win after beating Smithers 1-0 in the finals.

Caledonia Kermodes win senior girls zones

The Caledonia Kermodes senior girls’ soccer team is heading to provincials for the eighth year straight following zones in Smithers

The Caledonia Kermodes senior girls’ soccer team is heading to provincials for the eighth year straight following a tight zone tournament in Smithers May 10-11.

In the first game on Friday, the Kermodes met Kitimat’s Mount Elizabeth Secondary School (MESS) in the first match.

At the end of regulation play, the game was tied at three, so the team’s heading into overtime – and then double overtime, where Cal scored to win the game.

The next match saw them up against Smithers – the team who has been Cal’s toughest competitors throughout the short season.

And Smithers proved they weren’t going to make it easy for Cal to take zones, winning 1-0.

On Saturday, Cal faced off against MESS again, this time beating them handily 3-0 in a crucial win.

“The tournament was a double knockout format,” said coach Duncan Stewart. “Cal had to come through the back door to beat Smithers in the final.”

Which is exactly what they did – winning 1-0 in the final game to qualify for provincials.

This year, provincials are in Courtenay, B.C. May 30 – June 1 where they will compete against 15 other teams from around the province.

“Top 10 finish is always the goal,” said Stewart.
