Chaos ruling the soccer pitch

Chaos continues to rule on the soccer pitch.

Richmond Chaos improved their Metro Women's Soccer League Third Division record to 10-0 Sunday with another clean sheet, blanking the Costal FC Surf from White Rock 7-0.

Chaos striker Lauren Tasaka kicked off the scoring at the 20-minute mark, sent in alone on a great lead pass by the team's other striker Natalie Sczerkowsky.

Ten minutes later it was Sczerkowsky’s turn, scoring with a strong shot from the left side set up by striker Asia Robinson. Center-midfielder Jenny Lyons then scored on a great run after a cross from stopper Jenn Forsberg before the half ended.

It did not take the Chaos long to strike again once the second half began. Off the center, Robinson scored from 20 feet out on a neat three-pass play with Tasaka and left-midfielder Janessa Murao, who crossed the ball back to Robinson who made no mistake with her shot.

Chaos then began dominating the middle of the park, with centre-midfielder Erin Lee finishing off a give-and-go with midfielder Kirstin Sullivan and then Lyons scoring her second on a similar play set up by Tasaka. Stopper Alexis Ford finished the scoring with a 35-yard blast just under the crossbar when set up by a back pass from Sullivan.

Keepers Julia Badock and Victoria Groff shared the clean sheet for the Chaos, which play in Tsawwassen next Sunday versus the third-place Wildebeests.

In Division One action, Mike Fletcher’s Red Devils had victory slip away with less than five minutes to play. The Red Devil keeper tipped a long ball shot from a Piranhas' forward off the bar. Unfortunately, for the Devils another Piranhas was able to tie the game with a strong effort on the rebound. The Devils had led the match for most of the game. The draw was tough to take in contest where had controlled much of play in the game.
