Championship weekend for three soccer squads

Chilliwack FC's U-13, U-14 and U-15 teams all triumphed on home turf at last weekend's Provincial B-Cup finals.

A historic weekend saw three Chilliwack FC soccer squads win provincial championships.

Chilliwack hosted the year-end B Cup tournaments at Townsend Park and Exhibition Stadium, sending six local teams into the fray.

The U-13, U-14 and U-15 girls claimed crowns, an unprecedented feat for Chilliwack soccer. In 30 years leading up to this, Chilliwack teams won just one of these championships.

The U-15 Attack were making their third straight trip to provincials after placing third in 2013 and fourth in 2012. They opened against the Kootenay South Storm, bombing them 6-0.

Meghan Rose and Anna-Maria Vandyk scored two goals apiece with Carly Murray and Jade Victor also finding the net.

Rose was named player of the game.

Chilliwack’s second game saw them blank the Nelson Selects 4-0 with Rose, Murray, Jessica Morgan and Katherine Toop getting goals.

Defender/striker Meghan Simpson was named player of the game.

Led by midfielder Alyssia Gaudette, the Attack scored a 3-0 win over the Langley Dynamite — goals from Toop (two) and Rose — landing them in the title game against Kelowna United.

Normally a defender, Melissa Frail had played the previous three games in net in relief of injured stopper Makena Lejeune. But Frail was injured in the first half against Kelowna, forcing Lejeune to reclaim her spot. Kelowna snuck one shot into the Chilliwack net, but Rose equalized.

Murray came through with a dramatic strike within the final two minutes to give her crew a 2-1 win.

Yasmina Enneddam led Chilliwack’s stifling defence, not getting one moment’s rest. She got help from Josie Wootten and Simpson.

Sydney Redden was a playmaking presence in the midfield, with Siobhan Finch adding strong two-way play. Hannah Hallier was active in the midfield and defence.

Injured striker Kayla Peters was supportive on the bench.

Chilliwack’s U-13 Attack started their championship run with an 8-0 win over the RSGA (Richmond) Riot, followed by a 11-0 win over the Prince George Timberwolves.

They routed Vernon United 7-1, then capped off the tournament by doubling the North Shore Pegasus 4-2 in the gold medal game.

Mimi Devette had a pair of goals against Kelowna, with Katie Lampen and Grace Van den Brink also scoring.

Katrina Brown went the distance in goal for the U-13s behind a stingy back line including Calista Ballantine, Kalista Kirkness, Miranda Coombes, Madison Steele, Amber Feaver and Summer Dejager.

Devette, Kennedy Galley, Jaiden Andries, Jessica Mansfield, Sydneigh Schofield and Carmen Bonnar steered play from the midfield with Lampen and Van den Brink providing most of the goals up front.

The U-14 girls had a tougher time winning their title, with no easy games along the way. A 3-2 win over the Cowichan Valley Chaos got them started, followed by a 2-1 win over Vernon United.

The Attack squeaked by the Nelson Selects and faced Vancouver’s Marpole Phoenix in the gold-medal match. They beat Marpole 2-1 to claim the crown.

Chilliwack’s U-16 Attack made it to the final, but settled for silver with a 1-0 loss to Saanich.

The U-18 squad earned bronze with a 5-0 win over Kootenay South Saints. Chilliwack’s U-17s finished fourth.
