Coached by Amelia Ng and Madison Ashcroft the 2003 girls team is the Cinderella story of the BCSPL Fall Season. Headed into the league cup playoffs as the #8 seed, the U15 girls knocked off the #1 seed and 2018 U15 National Champions Mountain United.  The very impressive 2-1 scoreline while on the road gave them all the confidence they needed to head into the Remembrance Day semi-finals. The Wave again travelled to the mainland where they took on 4th place Fusion FC.  The game was a close battle including a few posts but the only goals to go in happened in the penalty shoot-out at the end of regulation.  Saryn Knox was the hero of the day scoring to give her team the victory and great ferry ride home.

Congratulations to Lilly Wood, Claire Pontefract, Grace O’Regan, Brooke Evans, Jamie Coukell, Lily Mannall-Fretwell, Jaymee Scollon, Hayley Weeks, Nicole Burnett, Jillian McCue, Saryn Knox, Amanda Russell, Payton Rangel, Georgia Harte, Georgia McLean, Sydney Harrison, Maya Gibson and Jenna DeGreef (permit player).

There are a total of 5 VI Wave teams in the League Cup Finals at UBC this weekend.  Joining the 2003 Wave girls on Sunday are the U16 Wave 2002 girls, who were provincial champions in June and the U13 2005 girls team with their first finals appearance winning a penalty shoot-out two weeks in a row.  Saturday sees the U14 and U15 boys teams go for gold, both are provincial champions last season.
