Attack battle to bronze at soccer provincials

Chilliwack's U-14 Attack girls finished third at a provincial tournament held last weekend in North Vancouver.

Chilliwack’s U-14 Attack girls captured bronze at last weekend’s Division B Soccer Provincials, held in North Vancouver.

The regular season and Coastal Cup champions kicked off Thursday against their North Shore hosts, winning 1-0. Hannah Hallier had the only goal. Defenders Melissa Frail, Yasmina Enneddam, Josie Wootten, Megan Ludlow and Jessica Morgan helped keep the North Shore offence at bay.

Chilliwack lost their second round-robin game (3-1 to Vernon) and came into their third, against Bulkley Valley, knowing they needed to score as many goals as possible to advance.

Midfielders Catherine Toop, Alyssa Gaudette, Siobhan Finch and Jade Victor drove play in the right direction and Anna-Maria Vandyk, Sydney Redden and Makena Lejeune were among the goal-scorers in an 8-0 win.

Lejeune was in net for Sunday’s bronze-medal match against Prince George.

While she was making stellar stops at one end, Meghan Simpson, Kayla Peters and Meghan Rose were creating offensive chances at the other.

Rose scored twice, leading the Attack to a 2-1 win.
