Cascade men tie Calgary

The University of the Fraser Valley men's soccer team battled the Calgary Dinos to a 2-2 draw in CIS soccer action.

The University of the Fraser Valley women’s soccer team capped off their Alberta road swing Sunday, battling the University of Calgary Dinos to a 2-2 draw.

The Cascades started slow in this one, but picked up the pace late in the first half.

Third-year midfielder Carly Neeson (Maple Ridge) led the charge, setting up UFV’s first goal.

With seven minutes remaining in the first half, Neeson found Surrey native Danica Kump unchecked in front of the Dino net. Kump made no mistake, burying the ball behind Calgary keeper Kristen Barton.

The Cascades doubled their lead four minutes later, with Kump converting another Neeson feed.

The Dinos cut into the lead midway through the second half, with Maddie Lee setting up Amy Hockings for a rocket that evaded UFV keeper Kayla Klim (Burnaby).

With nine minutes remaining, Lee set up Lauren Vernon for the equalizer.

“I am very proud of our young team because we earned four of the possible six points on the trip,” said UFV coach Rob Giesbrecht.

The Cascades opened the road trip Saturday with a 2-1 win in Lethbridge, and their  overall record now sits at 3-1-1.

The Dinos slipped to 0-3-3.

The Cascades host the University of Manitoba and University of Winnipeg, this weekend at Exhibition Stadium in Chilliwack.
