Attack advance in Coastal Cup playoffs

Chilliwack’s U-15 soccer Attack dumped the North Shore Adrenalin 3-1 in weekend action at North Vancouver’s William Griffin Park, moving on to the Sweet 16 in Coastal Cup playoffs.

The Adrenalin started fast in this one, scoring their only goal just four minutes into the game.

The rest of the first half was a defensive struggle, although Chilliwack had quality chances off the feet of Dani Cherniwchan, Haley Henderson, Leah Cairns and Krista Bartel.

The Attack controlled play in the second half, led by speedy defender Karyn Yakemchuk, who used her wheels to thwart the North Shore strikers and initiate the transition game. At the 22 minute mark, Chilliwack was awarded a penalty kick.

From 25 yards out on the right side, MacKenzie Graham made a quick pass to Jenna Snow, who rocketed a shot into the back of the net.

With seven minutes remaining, Megan Kelly took a pass and dribbled past two stunned defenders before booting the ball into the net.

The Adrenalin got over-aggressive in search of the equalizer, giving Chilliwack a direct penalty kick in the waning moments. Snow went high to the top left corner with her shot.

The North Shore goaltender got her fingers on it, but not enough to keep it out. The Attack now move on to the Coastal Cup finals, which start on Apr. 2.
