Chilliwack FC’s U-15 Strikers host GEU Panthers in Coastal Cup semi

Playoff action goes Saturday at Townsend Park as Chilliwack FC's U-15 Strikers try to get one step closer to a Coastal Cup title.

Chilliwack’s U-15 Storm continue their  searching for an elusive prize this weekend, taking on GEU Panthers in a Coastal Cup semi-final.

A core group of girls have been together for several years, winning their league several times, but never taking a Coastal Cup title.

The Storm won all of their league games this year, and coach Cheryl Hagen believes they finally have the right mix to get it done.

“This is an extremely dedicated group of athletes who all have other physical activities such as basketball, volleyball, hockey, barrel racing and acting,” the coach noted. “But they come together for the love of soccer, devoting time and energy to practices even when the fields are closed. They laugh together, cry together and most of all have fun together in a team sport they all love.”

The players are Taylor Antle, Brittany Cerne, Holly Cherniwchan, Hannah Clark, Jade Contois, Brianna Crowe, Brianna Ens, Alicia George Bailey, Cheyenne Hagen, Erin Harmatuik, Teagan James, Kaitlyn Lindhout, Alexandria Robertson, Simran Sundhu, Michelle Sommer, Hailey Thomson, Emilia Tschetter and Chanelle Urquhart.

Their semi-final game is noon Saturday on the turf at Townsend Park.
