Stingy D leads to draws

Goals were hard to come by for Chilliwack’s U-21 Pacific Coast Soccer League women’s squad this weekend.

Goals were hard to come by for Chilliwack’s U-21 Pacific Coast Soccer League women’s squad this weekend.

The team played twice and scored just once.

But that was good enough to earn a pair of draws against West Van FC and Kelowna United.

Chilliwack faced West Van FC on the road Saturday, playing to a scoreless tie at Ambleside Park.

“It was a tightly played game with limited chances for both teams,” said Chilliwack head coach Glenn Wilson. “Just very stingy defence at both ends.”

Chilliwack returned home to face Kelowna United Sunday afternoon.

Midfielder Reanne Beerwald scored to give Chilliwack a 1-0 lead heading into halftime, but Kelowna equalized at the 60 minute mark and the teams played to a 1-1 final.

“That leaves us unbeaten through our first three games of the season,” Wilson noted. “But we’re still looking for our first win.”

The women hit the road Saturday, visiting the Mid Isle Highlanders at Caledonia Park in Nanaimo.

On the men’s side, Chilliwack played road games Saturday and Sunday against TSS Academy and West Van FC.

Connor McMillan scored Chilliwack’s only goal Saturday in a 1-0 win over TSS Academy.

McMillan scored both goals Sunday in a 2-2 draw with West Van FC.

The men finally get a home game this Sunday as they host the Kamloops Heat at Townsend Park.
