The Holland Hurricanes fell to the Algonquin Thunder on Thursday in their second game of the CCAA National Women’s Soccer Championship in Surrey, British Columbia. The Thunder went up early and scored often as the injury ridden Hurricanes ultimately fell by a score of 9-0.

The Thunder received goals from Jesa Rada in the 4’ and Ginny Cass in the 6’ to go up 2-0 early. Cass scored her second of the game at the 17’ while Jaymie Baldree put one home at the 22’ mark to extend their lead to 4-0.

Through the constant offensive pressure from the Thunder reports flooded live game updates on the great stops being made by ‘Canes keeper Emma Kelly. Kelly was named the ACAA female athlete of the week last week after posting back to back shutouts upsetting the number one and two ranked UKC Blue Devils and MSVU Mystics on their way to an ACAA championship.

Before the half the Thunder scored in the 42’ when Amy Savage scored on a corner kick that found the back of the Hurricanes net.

As the second half progressed the Hurricanes played a strong defensive game versus the heavy offensive pressure from the Thunder, keeping the game at a 5-0 Thunder advantage until the 73’ when the Thunder’s Julie Paul scored followed by a penalty kick goal by Kandyce Whitehead in the 80’ to go up 7-0.

Before the final whistle could blow the Thunder added goals in the 85’ by Robest Prescod and 90’ by Samantha Lariviere. The Thunder went on to win the game 9-0.

Shalan Armstrong was the Hurricanes player of the game while Kelly Avalos was chosen from the Thunder.

The Hurricanes, now 0-2 in the tournament will have Friday off to rest before playing in their final game of the tournament on Saturday morning at 9am local time (1 pm Atlantic) versus the loser of the TRU Wolfpack and host Kwantlen Eagles.
