CENTRAL SAANICH — Stelly’s Secondary’s senior girls soccer team held off all comers to successfully defend their UVic Nike Spring Classic title April 16 to 18.

The Stingers defeated Reynolds, 1-nil, on the strength of a first half goal by Sophie Blandford and the outstanding defence provided by tournament most valuable player Mara McCleary.

Stelly’s won the event last year and retained many of their players from last season.

Next up for the Stingers is a tournament in Campbell River, where they hope to defend their titles from 2013 and 2014.

Stelly’s plays host to the AAA Island finals next month and also welcomes the top teams in B.C. to the provincial finals at the end of May.
