Attack battle belligerent Beasts

  • Jan. 27, 2011 11:00 a.m.

It was a tougher game than expected, but the Chilliwack U-15 Attack girls (8-1-2) edged the visiting Dunbar Beasts (1-7-3) last Sunday in Chilliwack.

Chilliwack’s speedy midfielders and forwards put tremendous pressure on the Dunbar defence, with MacKenzie Graham, Dani Cherniwchan and Jenna Snow generating great early chances.

They were thwarted by an excellent goalkeeper whose efforts kept the Attack off the scoreboard in the first half.

The Beasts scored the only goal of the opening half, making a rare run into the Chilliwack end and scoring in the final five minutes.

To start the second half, Attack coach Jamie Steeves moved defender Jodi Brown up front to help with the strong Beast defenders.

The move paid off at the 15 minute mark when a Kristy Ricard cross found the foot of Bettina Rillera, who slid the ball pass the Beast keeper to knot the score at 1-1.

The Attack kept pressing and netted the winner 10 minutes later. A through ball made its way to the dangerous Megan Kelly, who hammered the ball into the Beast goal.

Dunbar tried to counter, but Chilliwack keeper Jenae Hidlebrandt held the fort. With the win, her team stays atop the league standings.
