Belmont senior girls soccer qualified for provincials at the Island Championships, but fell short of taking the tournament with some key players out with injuries.

The team won their first two games, versus Francis Kelsey and Stelly’s, the latter by only one goal after a late-game comeback by Stelly’s. Francis Kelsey fell 3-0 off goals by Katie Rufh, Brooklyn Mayoh and Miranda Llewellyn.

A narrow win over Dover Bay guaranteed the team a spot at the provincials. The tight game ended 1-0 from a goal at the 15-minute mark from Marisa Livingstone, sealing the deal.

The run came to an end in the championship game versus Oak Bay, which the Bulldogs lost 3-0.

The team will head to provincials in Vancouver at the end of the month.
