The Mission Strikers went undefeated since Christmas.

U12 Strikers division cup champions

West Coast Warriors fall to Mission Strikers after shoot out

After a less than mediocre record though the Christmas break, the U12 Mission Strikers went undefeated since Feb. 2 culminating in two overtime shoot out victories to win the division cup championship.

The March 9 game saw the Strikers take a 3-1 lead into the later part of the game, with goals by Jackson Trask, Bavan Dahliwal, and Jasraj Brar.

Maple Ridge’s West Coast Warriors, holders of the league’s best record, were far from done and battled back to tie the game at 3-3 by the end of regulation time. Superb defense by Brar, Dylan Harmston and Erik Theissen, as well as some huge and timely stops by goalkeeper Tanner Geringer, helped preserve the tie through two overtime sessions which forced a shoot out.

During the shoot out Mission was up 2-0, but found themselves tied after five shooters each. After the Warriors sixth shot was stopped, Mission’s Cole Baird buried the winner.
