Storm stepping closer to Coastal Cup title

Chilliwack's U-15 Bronze Storm girls beat the Maple Ridge Panthers 1-0 Saturday, securing a spot in the Coastal Cup final.

Chilliwack’s U-15  Bronze Storm girls  won their semi-final game over the Maple Ridge Panthers on Saturday, taking another big step towards their ultimate goal of a Cup championship.

Playing in extremely windy conditions, the local girls required just one goal to win.

It came in extra time off the foot of Cheyenne Hagen.

Midway through the first 10 minute overtime period, Michelle Sommer sent a strong cross from the far wing.

Coming up from her midfield position, Hagen calmly buried the game winner as her teammates erupted in cheers.

Goaltenders Emilia Tschetter and Kaitlyn Lindhout had to be sharp, splitting the netminding duties and credit for the shutout.

The Storm move on to the BC Coastal Classic Cup final, hosting the game April 1 in Chilliwack.

They will face NSGSC U15 Delta.
