Strikers score four to confound Kaos

Chilliwack FC, Coquitlam Kaos, youth soccer, U-15 girls

Chilliwack’s U-16 Silver Strikers girls looked for a bounce-back effort as they hosted the Coquitlam Kaos.

Due to injuries, both teams were forced to use their backup keepers for this game.

Chilliwack came out with a determined effort from the opening whistle, forcing several turnovers from the Kaos midfielders.

The Strikers opened the scoring at the 10 minute mark. A corner kick by Kristy Ricard found Taylor Allen waiting in the six yard box. Allen tipped the ball into the net for a 1-0 lead.

Chilliwack continued to press, but Coquitlam’s stifling ‘bunch’ defence kept the Strikers from adding to their lead.

The score remained 1-0 at halftime.

Eleven minutes into the second half, left midfielder Kiana Thiessen’s determined work against a Kaos defender resulted in a pass to Haley Mainse at the opposite post.  Mainse made no mistake one-timing the ball into a wide-open net.

Four minutes later, Shanelle Brown passed to Allen who, in turn, sent the ball to Mainse. From the side of the 18 yard box, her quick back pass was a perfect set up for Ricard.

Ricard slammed her shot into the top corner of the net past the outstretched fingers of the Kaos keeper to give the Strikers a three goal cushion. At the 19 minute mark, Jade Emond sent the ball to midfielder Kaila Ronda, who relayed it to Emma Haagensen at the top of the 18 yard box. Haagensen beat two defenders and left-footed her shot low into the bottom corner.

Chilliwack’s shutout bid was spoiled in the 33rd minute when Coquitlam was awarded a handball penalty kick. Chilliwack was also awarded a penalty kick three minutes later for a tackle from behind.  Mainse took the shot but missed the mark.

The girls travel to Burnaby on Friday for a Remembrance Day tournament. They’re back home Sunday to face the Coquitlam Nitro.
