Chilliwack wins big in Cup opener

Chilliwack FC's United girls scored seven in a route of Burnaby, taking the first leg on their Coastal Cup journey.

Chilliwack’s U-12 United Select soccer girls earned a 7-3 win over Burnaby in their first Coastal Cup game last Sunday.

On a rainy and cold afternoon, Grace Vandenbrink got the scoring started with a penalty shot strike. Miranda Coombes scored the second Chilliwack goal off a corner kick, and Vandenbrink made it 3-0 with a breakaway snipe.

Vandenbrink picked up the hat-trick marker minutes later, with an assist to Kassidy Nienhuis.

Sydney Dombowsky scored off a corner to kick to put her team up 5-0.

Burnaby scored twice before halftime, but Vandenbrink and Amber Feaver (on a penalty shot) scored second half markers to put the game away.

Abigail Vandop turned in some great netminding.

Kennedy Galley, Deanna Tuchscherer, Kalista Kirkness, Grace MacIsaac, and Madison Steele all turned in solid play.

Chilliwack plays their second Cup game Sunday at Townsend Park.
