Surrey, BC….The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s soccer team defeated the Vancouver Whitecaps Girls Elite team, 1-0, at Newton Park, in Surrey, BC. The Cascades were part of the Vancouver Whitecaps showcase weekend in Surrey. The Cascades played a great defensive game shutting down one of more explosive U-18 offenses. The Cascades goal came in the 80th minute as Victoria Baird, Surrey, BC scored off a scramble in front of the Whitecaps net.
Kayla Klim, Burnaby, BC earned the shutout/victory in UFV’s net. She played all 90 minutes making several key saves to preserve the shutout.
“Proud of our group today, they worked extremely hard and bought into the game plan. We were difficult to breakdown and at times dangerous in our attack. Big thanks to the Whitecaps for putting on a quality event and allowing us to be a part of it,” commented UFV head coach Rob Giesbrecht.
