The Swift Current Comp. Ardens added a 5A SHSAA Girls Soccer Regional Championship to their collection in Yorkton on Saturday.

The Ardens defeated the host Yorkton Regional Raiders 4-0 in the Regional final after Yorkton had defeated Weyburn 6-0 in the semi-final.

Captain Bryn Haubrich led the Ardens with two free kick goals in the second half and also had an assist on the final goal when Heidi Spetz volleyed home a long cross to close the scoring on a cold and windy day.

Grade 12 striker Olivia Koebel opened the scoring in the first half when she got behind the Raiders defence to finish off a thru ball from Mackenzie Metke.

Emma Moen picked up the clean sheet in goal.

The unbeaten Ardens will conclude their season at 5A Provincials in Prince Albert this weekend.
