The Amherst Regional High School Vikettes are off to a quick start this season.
AMHERST (Staff) - The Amherst Regional High School Vikettes are off to a quick start this season.
The team is currently 6-1 heading into play on Thursday against the South Colchester Raiders of Brookfield.
Last weekend at the Atlantic Baptist University/Harrison Trimble event, the Vikettes claimed the silver medal losing to the host Lady Trojans 2-1 in the final.
ARHS went 4-1 in the event, allowing just three goals in five games and outscoring opponents 13-3 in the tournament.
Not bad for practically a brand new team, Michelle Ripley, coach of the Vikettes, said.
We have seven rookies in total. The team is really young with six Grade 9 rookies, only a handful of 10s and 11s and three Grade 12s, she said noting there is a great deal of work to be done for th team to continue to develop.
Marlon Smith got the lone goal for ARHS against Harrison Trimble.
On Friday, Smith scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Tantramar.
On Saturday morning, the Vikettes blanked Dalhousie 4-0 as Smith netted a pair and Justine Landry and Kellie Burbine got on each. In the afternoon, ARHS topped Sugarloaf High School of Campbellton 3-1.
Rachel MacDonald, Smith and Michelle Anderson scored in the win.
This put ARHS in the semi-finals where they blanked Woodstock 3-0 behind the strength of Smiths three goals.
Meredith Smith won Keeper of the Tournament.
The Vikettes defeated Northumberland High 1-0 Monday.
As long as all the girls bring what they have to the table, we're gonna do fine, she said.
