Tie game for Scorpions

The Coastal FC Girls U18 Gold Scorpions took on the top team in their league last Sunday, tying the Vancouver United Roadrunners 1-1.

The tying goal was scored by Sarah Balneaves in the second half – minutes after the Roadrunners scored – from a free kick about 25 yards out.

Goalkeeper Amy Cornish helped keep the Roadrunners at bay, whith help from defenders Ally and Lauren Robertson, Katie Filice and Lauren Evans.

Midfielders Allegra Quadri, Jaclyn Tatay, Taylor Glass, Emily Bonshor and Keyanna Russell also battled it out on the field against the top-tier team, with Ashley Simpson, Sarah Strachan, Olivia Walker and Rachelle Folk as constant threats through a well-organized defence.
