Scoreless draw for Strikers

Chilliwack FC's U-16 soccer Strikers battled the Semiahmoo 96ers to a scoreless draw in South Surrey last weekend.

Chilliwack’s U-16 soccer Striker girls made their 2012 debut, traveling to South Surrey for a match against the Semiahmoo ’96ers.

After a three week holiday break, both teams had plenty of rust to shake off.

Neither team generated much offence in a first half that ended 0-0.

The second half continued with tight checking, missed passes and few scoring chances for either team.

A penalty kick awarded to the 96er’s in the 11th minute could have been the turning point, but Chilliwack keeper Samantha Chand stopped the first shot and then the rebound to keep the game scoreless.

For the first time this season, the locals were out-chanced by a 2-1 margin. But they managed to hold off a late Surrey onslaught to gain a point in the 0-0 tie.

The girls are home Sunday for their second of three games in the first round of the Coastal Cup.
