Saanich Storm win Frank Leversedge Cup, promotion

Results from the Lower Island Women's Soccer Association's Frank Leversedge and Stephanie Shergold Community Cups

Promotion is in the works as the Saanich Fusion Storm will join Division 2 of the Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association next year.

The Storm edged Bays United 1-0 in the Frank Leversedge Community Cup, Division 3 championship on Frank’s Field at Lochside Park on Sunday.

The game was still scoreless in the 70th minute when a Saanich defender was sent off for nicking a Bays striker from behind on a breakaway. Storm coach Drew Smyth then applied an aggressive formation (3-4-2) to make up for the missing player, and it worked.

Midfielder Melissa Lee received a Danielle Lovick cross into centre and scored at 77 minutes.

Goalkeepers Abbey Lovick and Kate Whitmore shared the clean sheet for the Storm.

The Storm are double winners as the Div. 3B league champs and Div. 3 Frank Leversedge cup holders.

The Bays will play a special playoff against the Lakehill Reds for the second promotion spot to Div. 2.

Salty result for Gorge’s over-30 girls

Sue-Anne Donaldson scored the game’s only goal six minutes in as Div. 2 Saltspring United defeated over-30 Gorge FC in the Stephanie Shergold Cup.

Saltspring’s keeper Alisha Renaud earned the shutout.

As Div. 2 regular season champs Saltspring wins promotion to Div. 1 for the 2012-13 season.

Gorge FC, the over-30A division champs, will represent LIWSA in the provincial classics bracket.
