Clearwater Secondary School girls soccer team placed second in the Raiders Cup last weekend at the school.

Nine teams from all over B.C. took part, with Merritt winning first place.

Clearwater won three out of its four games, with scores of 2-0, 2-1, and 1-0 but lost to Merritt 3-0.

Hanna grabsHighlights include the local squad holding off a strong Burns Lake team and beating them 1-0.

Clearwater’s two goaltenders could not make the second day and so Annie Butcher stepped in. She played two fantastic games – very impressive for the first time in goal.

Next game for the team was in Barriere on Wednesday. A win there likely would put them in the Okanagan playoffs.
