Chilliwack soccer stars help Fraser Valley Selects win Coastal Cup

Katelyn DePodesta, Charley Ball and Abbi Bradley played key roles for the U13 champions.

Three Chilliwack soccer players have added another accomplishment to a very successful season by winning B.C. Soccer’s U13A Coastal Cup championship.

The U13 Fraser Valley Selects Metro soccer team, including Katelyn DePodesta, Charley Ball and Abbi Bradley, captured the Cup with a 1-0 win over the Burnaby District Fire Sunday at Minoru Park in Richmond.

Despite many scoring chances by Fraser Valley and some great saves by the Burnaby keeper, the teams were held scoreless at halftime. Fraser Valley took the lead five minutes into the second half and held off Burnaby’s pressure to close out the win.

DePodesta, Ball and Bradley’s Coastal Cup run was even more impressive given their team did not allow a single goal against in all three of their Cup matches.

In March, Fraser Valley also won the B.C. Coastal Soccer League Girls U13 Metro title by finishing first with a record of 15 wins, 2 draws and only a single loss.

The team will compete in a few tournaments to prepare for provincials, then they will seek the prestigious soccer triple crown in the B.C. Provincial A Cup, taking place July 4-7 at South Surrey Athletic Park.
