Chilliwack FC’s U-12 Strikers rolling in Cup play

The Chilliwack U-12 Silver Striker boys are closing in on a Group E Cup title, having gone three for three in round-robin play.

Chilliwack’s U-12 Silver Striker boys are three for three in Group E Cup play after a 2-1 weekend win over the Surrey Hawks.

Surrey had the upper hand throughout the first half, but great defending by Luke Zandberg and Jordan Grahn, and solid goal-keeping by Jackson Gardner, kept the Hawks at bay.

Chilliwack’s fortunes changed midway through the second half.

Midfielder Nathan Brodie set up Jacob Bockhodt, who picked the top corner with a rocket shot. Bockhodt added another goal minutes later.

The Strikers relaxed for a moment, allowing Surrey to cut their lead in half.

That set up a nervy final 10 minutes in which both teams hit cross-bars.

But Chilliwack settled down and closed out the game, led by the stingy defending of Braiden Kervel, Harrison Channing and Konrad Roche.

A win against the Central City Strikers this weekend could land Chilliwack in the Group E Cup final.
