Okanagan split for Pacific Coast Soccer League squad

Chilliwack FC lost in Penticton and won in Kelowna, taking their PCSL record to 1-2 in early-season action.

Three games into the 2013 Pacific Coast Soccer League season, Chilliwack FC’s men’s team is 1-2 and looking for momentum.

After opening the regular season schedule with a 4-0 loss to the Abbotsford Mariners, the locals hit the road last weekend, travelling to Penticton and Kelowna.

Chilliwack absorbed a 4-1 loss to Penticton Saturday.

Six-foot-six center-back Kyle Staiger had CFC up 1-0 at halftime, scoring from 12 feet out off a Chilliwack free kick. But Penticton scored four unanswered in the second half, cruising to the win.

CFC bounced back nicely on Sunday, earned a 3-1 win in Kelowna.

Connor MacMillan rifled a top-corner shot in the first half, then scored again midway through the second half.

Up by one with time ticking down, Chilliwack keeper Jon Vugteveen made a world-class save on a free kick from 22 yards out. Rookie striker Jason Staiger put the game away, scoring the insurance marker with 10 minutes left.

The team has this weekend off, returning to action May 25 versus Nanaimo.

In a rematch of last year’s Challenge Cup final, Chilliwack and Victoria United clash May 26.

CFC hosts both games at Townsend Park.
