Pacific Coast Soccer League men fall to Penticton in Challenge Cup semi-final

Chilliwack's U-21 PCSL men were blanked by the Penticton Pinnacles Saturday, ending an otherwise successful season.

Chilliwack’s U-21 Pacific Coast Soccer League men saw their season end with a loss at the Challenge Cup tournament.

The league’s top four teams gathered Saturday at Coquitlam Centre Park, squaring off in a pair of semi-final matches.

Chilliwack, the third place regular season team at 6-3-5, matched up against the second place Penticton Pinnacles (7-2-5).

The teams traded chances throughout the first half, but Penticton got the only goal.

Leading 1-0 at the break, the Pinnacles added another early in the second half.

Chilliwack pushed and pushed, trying desperately to put one past the Pinnacle keeper. But they came up empty, and Penticton added two late goals to make the final 4-0.

Penticton went on to defeat the Abbotsford Mariners 4-2 in Sunday’s championship game.

The end result doesn’t mar a season that saw Chilliwack lose just twice in their last 13 games. The locals made the playoffs for the second year in a row, posting their best record since 2008.
