BROOKFIELD - The South Colchester Wolves look to cap a successful soccer season with a provincial title this weekend.
The Wolves enter the four-team Nova Scotia School Athletic Federation Division 3 girls championship tournament in New Germany, Lunenburg County with momentum on their side after winning all but one game this season.
"I like our chances," said Wolves centre-midfielder Rachel Sears. "We've had a great season and the team's come together well and I think we can do well."
The Wolves earned their berth at the provincial tournament after winning a qualifier last weekend - blasting the Barrington Barons 7-1. Prior to that, SCA breezed to a Northumberland region title by posting wins over Springhill and East Antigonish and outscoring the opposition by a combined 15-1 margin.
Despite the team's success to date, however, Sears said the Wolves aren't about to let their guard down, and expect fierce competition this weekend.
"I don't think we'll take it for granted because most of the players on our team play high-level soccer, so we should be used to tight games," she said.
The Wolves put in a good week of practice and are primed for the opportunity to nab a provincial banner.
"We had our last practice (Thursday) and everybody was pretty fired up for it, everybody is pretty excited to play," Sears said.
