Chilliwack FC men in pursuit of playoffs

Chilliwack FC picked up four points from two Pacific Coast Soccer League games, moving closer to the top four and a playoff spot.

Chilliwack FC’s Pacific Coast Soccer League men kept the playoff hopes alive, earning a win and a tie in weekend action.

Chillliwack FC took on Richmond’s TSS Academy Saturday at Townsend Park.

Jaye Amberg had the lone goal for the locals, who used the game as a springboard to a Sunday afternoon showdown with a tough West Van FC squad. The game was played at Ambleside Park, home to the PCSL’s second place team.

The game was scoreless at halftime, and stayed that way until midway through the second half. Chilliwack striker Jason Staiger checked in at the 25-minute mark and immediately made his presence felt.

Staiger took a feed from winger Jordie Leib and rifled it past the West Van keeper.

Minutes later, Staiger moved into the six-yard box and volleyed a Leib cross into the net for the insurance goal.

Chilliwack native Jon Vugteveen made some big stops in goal, earning his second clean sheet of the year.

At 3-3-4, the locals have moved up to sixth in the nine-team reserve men’s circuit.

The top four make the playoffs.

Chilliwack trails the fourth place Penticton Pinnacles by four points with four games remaining.

They visit Vancouver Island this weekend for games against Victoria United (Saturday) and the Mid Isle Highlanders (Sunday).
