Peace Arch Rangers’ Michael Krowchuk (centre) tries to get to a loose ball before the Abbotsford Hurricanes’ goalkeeper – or the defender in pursuit – can clear the ball out of harm’s way during U18 boys soccer action at South Surrey Athletic Park.

SOCCER SCENE: Storm earn shutout over Abby

The South Fraser Storm earned a 2-0 shutout in U16 Metro Girls soccer action last weekend, beating Abbotsford.

The South Fraser Storm earned a 2-0 shutout in U16 Metro Girls soccer action last weekend, beating Abbotsford.

Nikki Lacis and Victoria Singh each scored to pace the Storm’s attack, while Serena Bonneville, Emma Ferris and Sydney Macewan were also solid at midfield, constantly putting pressure on Abby’s defenders.

Outside backs Caroline Mullen and Sidney Brooks also excelled on the defensive side of the ball, helping to secure goalkeeper Hannah Jiwani’s third consecutive shutout.

Scorpion shutout

Semiahmoo Scorpions goalkeeper Amy Cornish was rock-solid between the pipes for her U17 Gold soccer team Sunday, leading the Scorpions to a 4-0 win over the Whistler Avalanche.

In addition to Cornish’s heroics in net, Semiahmoo was strong offensively . Jaclyn Tatay led the way with two goals, and Katarina Kyle and Sarah Strachan had one goal each.

The score could easily have been much higher, too – Rachelle Folk and Keyanna Russell were each denied goals on a number of great scoring opportunities, and midfielders Allegra Quadri, Taylor Glass, Ashley Simpson and Emily Bonshor were not without chances, either.

Defensively, Katie Filice, Sarah Balneaves, Laura Evans and Lauren and Ally Robertson were standouts.
