In the indoor soccer season last fall and winter, the Valley United U-18 girls finished second in the province, compiling a 13-0-1 regular season record (and allowing just four goals) before losing in the NSSL final.
The U-18 girls have gotten their 2010 NSSL outdoor season off to a good start as well, winning their first two games of the season, both by shutout.
Valley shut out Cape Breton 3-0 June 12, with Alana Fairfax, Nicole Davidson and Chantal S. Landry doing the scoring, and 2-0 June 13, with Julia Levernois and Amy Lockhart scoring the goals. Carrie Wood continued her stingy play in goal as she had in the indoor season, earning the shutout in both victories.
The Valley U-16 boys and girls were also off to good starts. The U-16 boys had two wins and a pair of draws in their first four games of the season, while the U-16 girls had three wins and one draw. In their most recent action entering play this past weekend, the U-16 girls blanked Dartmouth United 1-0, with Kinsella Noseworthy-Smith scoring the goal. Vanessa Robertson earned her second shutout of the season.
The Valley Kings Arms senior men’s team also got into the win column with a decisive 5-0 win over Halifax County, June 13. James Nunn had three goals and Devin Tetlow two for Kings Arms, which improved to 1-3 with the victory. Andrew MacRae had the shutout.
The Valley U-14 D girls also picked up their first win of the summer schedule, 3-2 over Dartmouth United June 12. Shay-Leigh Beaton had two goals for Valley and Lille Ryan one.
The U-14 A girls settled for a split of their weekend games after being blanked 2-0 by Suburban June 13, leaving them with a 1-4 record entering play this past weekend.
In other Tier 1 action on the June 12 weekend, the U-14 D boys were blanked 6-0 by Halifax City and the Valley senior women lost 2-0 to Dunbrack. The U-14 D boys stood at 0-4, while the senior women fell to 0-2-1. The U-14 A girls were at 0-2, and the U-14 A boys were at 0-4-1.
The U-18 boys were scheduled to play their first game of the season June 20 in Sackville.
