EDMONTON — The Red Deer Renegades U18 tier II girls capped off the indoor provincial soccer championship with a gold medal Sunday.

After putting together a 3-0 record in round robin play, they faced last season’s outdoor provincial champions, Edmonton Scottish. The Renegades got great goaltending from Kaitlyn Darcy in a 3-2 victory.

Laryssa Ubels, Teala McEwan and Sydney Daines scored for the Renegades.

A big highlight for the girls was not only winning the provincial championship but beating the previous indoor and outdoor champions. The Renegades took out last year’s indoor champions, the Calgary Blizzard Lightning, 2-1 on Saturday which gave them the berth in Sunday’s final.

• Meanwhile the Renegades U18 Tier II boys defeated the Medicine Hat Crusaders 10-1 to take fifth place in the provincials.

Gerbrant VanderGoot and Josh Cruickshank scored three times each for the Renegades with singles added by Massoum Zaher, Adrian Ramirez, Jose Posada and Sam Day. Brody Slagman earned the victory in goal.

Earlier the Renegades lost 3-2 to the Calgary Blizzard and beat the Edmonton West Warriors 5-2.

On Saturday the Renegades gave out their team awards with Slagman receiving the MVP award while Tom Wunsch was top defender and the players’ player and Adrian Ramirez the most improved. VanderGoot and Cruickshank shared the top scorer award.
