The U13 KYSA Blaze Team White won their first game of the Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League on Saturday against Kelowna United Ws.
The final score was 2 - 1 for your Kamloops Blaze. The Blaze controlled the early play but gave up a goal after a scramble in the penalty area. After conceding the early goal, the girls raised their game and continued to pressure the Kelowna team. Sophie Lovett scored from the penalty spot to tie the game in the first half and the pressure paid further dividends when Zoe Ratkaj scored in the second half to put Kamloops 2 - 1 up. Kamloops then held off a late surge by the Kelowna team to hold on for the win.
