Chilliwack’s U-16 Silver Strikers opened their fall soccer season at home last Sunday, bouncing the Semiahmoo Stingrays 1-0.
The locals took charge of the game from the start, dominating both ball possession and field position.
The girls allowed just five shots on their own net while directing 14 at the beleaguered Stingray keeper.
Forward Haley Mainse split the Semiahmoo defence to score the game’s lone goal 15 minutes in, set up beautifully on passes by Kristy Ricard and Breanna Zeswick.
Chilliwack hosts their next game Sunday at noon against the North Shore Twisters.
