Juan de Fuca collects soccer’s Leversedge Cup

Division 3B women's side caps nearly perfect season with title

Juan de Fuca’s Division 3B team finished off their Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association season in style recently, beating the Ladysmith Strikers 2-0 for the Frank Leversedge Cup title.

Cheyenne Holland and Sarah Linde scored for the winners, while goalkeeper Cynthia Maurice recorded the shutout April 6 at Lochside Park in Saanich.

After dropping their first league game, the West Shore side – made up largely of Belmont secondary grads – reeled off 13 straight wins to win the division by a comfortable margin. They beat Castaways 3-0 in the Cup quarter-finals, then got past Prospect Lake 2-0 on the turf at Westhills to reach the final.
