Strikers neutralize North Shore

Chilliwack’s U-15 soccer Silver Striker girls knocked off the North Shore Strikers 3-0 last Sunday.

Taking charge from the opening whistle, Chilliwack opened the scoring at the six-minute mark.

A North Shore defender was charged with a trip, giving Chilliwack a direct free kick from the left side of the 18 yard box.

Center-midfielder Haley Mainse arched a perfect ball over the keeper for the 1-0 lead.

Chilliwack added a second goal late in the half, scoring on a pretty tic-tic-tac-toe play. Kelli Whitehead fed the ball to Kiana Thiessen who re-directed the ball to Taylor Allan at the top of the 18-yard box.

Allen neatly tipped the ball between two defenders to center forward Emma Haagensen who made no mistake slamming the ball into the North Shore net. At the nine minute mark of the second half, midfielder Elena Schroots took a throw-in in the Northshore half and sent forward Emily Finley away down the left side.

Finley took the ball into the 18 and lifted a left-footed shot that sailed inside the post past a surprised keeper for Chilliwack’s third goal.

Two other breakaways by Brett Karcioglu and Makayla Pfeifer just missed the mark.

The girls are on the road again this week, traveling to Surrey to take on the Galaxy.
