Oak Bay to face Reynolds in Ryan Cup final, Tuesday at UVic

Oak Bay to host AAA senior girls Islands May 13-14

Oak Bay senior girls soccer team are in the Ryan Cup on Tuesday after a 3-1 win over the league’s top team Royal Bay.

Gametime for the Ryan Cup final, the city tournament which pits all comers from A to AAA, is 4 p.m. on the University of Victoria turn field No. 3 (next to CARSA).

It’ll be a rematch of the 2018 Ryan Cup final as Reynolds beat St. Michaels University school 3-1 in the other Ryan Cup semifinal. In 2018, Oak Bay was up 1-0 but lost in overtime to a major Reynolds comeback.

“The players are excited and the more games we can get in before Islands, the better,” said Oak Bay coach Katie Baker.

In their semifinal against first-place Royal Bay Kiana Higuchi, Jasmine Lee and Ella Hayes all scored for third-place Oak Bay. It was a turn of events as Royal Bay had edged Oak Bay 2-1 in the first game of the school season this year.

“As the season goes on teams improve and get better and we were a better team than the first time we played them,” Baker said. “It was our best overall team performance that we’ve had this season, a great game for us.”
