Striker Zenow Renaerts opened the scoring, picking up a rebound off a Robbie Fadden free kick.  Fadden scored three of his own with winger Mike Perry adding a single in a 5-0 rout. Jackie Tang earned the shutout in goal.

The Rapids B team, playing in the Fourth Division, travelled to Abbotsford’s Bradner Park Sunday to play the veteran Bradner Redshirts.

The young Chilliwack side maintained more of the possession, but could only get one through the big and physical Redshirt’s defense in the first half.Fullback Alex Vogt rushed in to put a shot past the Bradner  keeper.

Meekaylae Renaerts added two, pushing the lead to 3-0.

Striker Norman Charlie made the final 4-0, with Antonio D’Archangelo earning the clean sheet in goal.

Matt Jarvis had three in the win.

The Rapids A and B teams alternate home games at Exhibition Stadium most Friday nights at 8 p.m.

The Masters team plays their home games at noon on alternating Sundays at Exhibition Stadium.
