After playing five games in 10 days, members of the Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils senior girls soccer squad did not show any signs of fatigue when they took on their heated Tri-City rivals, the Centennial Centaurs, Thursday night.
The Blue Devils came out of the gates running, scoring their first goal in the first minute, and the team quickly tallied a second marker late in the first half as they cruised to a 2-1 victory.
The result left them in third place in the Fraser Valley AAA high school championships.
Both Best and Centennial secured berths in the provincials earlier in the tournament and are now gearing up for a trip to Kamloops to take on the best in the province. The Blue Devils' latest victory will improve the squad's seeding in the upcoming championship matches.
Centennial coach Larry Moro said his team played well but was clearly feeling the effects of a lengthy Fraser Valley tournament, as were the Blue Devils.
"Five games in 10 days took its toll on both teams," he said."The teams now have two weeks to recover and prepare for the provincials."
The Centaurs managed one goal in the second half, after Sarah Furney setup Olivia Agiuar in the late stages of the game.
The teams will now prepare for the Kamloops tournament, which runs from June 2 to 4.
