Lunachicks score five and blank Breakers

women's soccer

The Chilliwack Lunachicks kicked off their inaugural season in the 30+ women’s gold division with an impressive road win.

The Lunachicks traveled to Montgomery Park in Vancouver and handed the Breakers a 5-0 defeat.

Two minutes after drilling a shot off the crossbar, Andrea  Feaver fired a long cross to a charging Jannelle Cavanaugh, who headed the ball into the Vancouver net for the opening goal. Tamara Soeliner beat the keeper but not the post at the 25 minute mark and the locals carried their slim lead into halftime.

The Lunachicks dominated the second half.

Six minutes in, Kelly Willmets took a drop pass from Cara Brendzy and launched a 25 footer into the cage. Five minutes later, Jocelyn Hultman converted a Feaver corner kick to give Chilliwack a 3-0 lead.

Brendzy stripped the ball from a Breaker defender to score the fourth Chilliwack goal, and Michelle Julian closed out the scoring when she headed in a nice cross from Andrea Northcott.

Lisa Hiemstra got the shutout in goal.

The Lunachicks host Langley United Sunday at the Tzeachten Sports field.
