Attack top Tsawwassen in Coastal Cup clash

The Chilliwack U-16 Attack needed overtime to beat Tsawwassen in a hard-fought meeting of arch-rivals.

Chilliwack’s U-16  Attack soccer girls keep on rolling.

The team stormed into the first round of Coastal Cup playdowns April 5, blanking Richmond 5-0. They bombed Coastal FC 4-0 April 6 and played their third-round game last Sunday against Tsawwassen.

Chilliwack’s arch-rivals carried play for the first two-thirds of the game, and led 1-0 at half-time.

The Attack got even 15 minutes into the second half when Talia Ferris pounced on a loose ball and popped it into the Tsawwassen net.

Tsawwassen re-took the lead five minutes later.

But Amber Charlie scored with 10 minutes remaining to send this game to overtime, where Chilliwack scored twice to seal the deal.

Charlie and Ryann Cornell did the damage against a short-handed Tsawwassen side that ran out of gas. The 4-2 final sends the Attack to Richmond for the Coastal Cup finals.

They’ll face the Squamish Fireballs the weekend of April 26-27.
