Co-op Highlanders run win streak to nine

The Peninsula Co-op Highlanders won its ninth straight match 3-2 over the North Shore Girls Soccer Club Eagles in Vancouver on Sunday.

Despite the streak, the Highlanders (10-1-2) are still seven points back of the Vancouver Whitecaps reserve team (13-2) for first in the Pacific Coast Soccer League’s premier women’s division.

The Highlanders went down 1-0 early on Sunday to the Eagles when Jackie Harrison evened the score in the 24th minute on a pass from Mariel Solsberg. Shannon Elder put the Highlanders up 2-1 in the 59th minute and  Harrison scored her second of the game on a penalty shot a few minutes later. A day earlier the Highlanders had trounced Coquitlam Metro Ford 7-0 at Tyndall Turf.

“With Liz Hansen out of the line-up, (Harrison) stepped up and did the business for us scoring two goals and being involved in the third,” said coach Dave Dew.

The Highlanders seek a 10th straight win Saturday (July 13) against the Okanagan FC, 5 p.m. at Royal Athletic Park. On Sunday the Fraser Valley Action visit the Highlanders, 2 p.m. at Tyndall.

The PDL Highlanders men host the Portland Timbers 7:30 p.m. Saturday at RAP.
