The Cochrane Chaos U15 girls soccer team has returned from Edmonton's Slush Bowl indoor soccer tournament with a silver medal after tying the Spruce Grove Trouble in the gold medal final.

The team beat the St. Albert Storm, 3-2, in their opening game in boarded 'D' pool and went on to topple the Blizzard Mustangs, 2-1, to advance to the gold medal final against Trouble, who also went undefeated the round-robin play.

Trouble wreaked havoc early in the first by popping in the first goal. The Chaos scored the next two to take a 2-1 lead before Trouble scored on a free kick to tie the game with three seconds on the clock. 

The tournament rules dictate the deciding factor was goal differential, which favoured Trouble.

"The Slush Bowl will help the Cochrane Chaos team in their preparation for the Provincials on the St. Patrick's Day weekend," writes coach Sarah Tas. "The team played with a commitment to each other, passion for the game, and with a whole lot of heart this weekend."

Juliet Alexander was the Chaos' top goal scorer of the tournament with four goals in three games Piper Stevenson, Brooke Crowchuck, Danika Niven and Malia Fyzuk also scored.

Up next is the BU12 Wolves in the final four competition later this week. They were first in their division in the regular season.

The GU17 Wolfpack head to Edmonton for the provincials, Mar. 15-17. That same weekend the GU15 Chaos will be in Calgary to also compete in provincials. 

The BU10 Wolves wrapped up their season this past weekend. While there are no standings or final tournament in this age group, Rhonda Carr, tiered league play coordinator for Cochrane Minor Soccer, says they developed into a tight group of boys who will also be playing soccer together outdoors when that season opens later this spring.

Registration remains open for the 2019 outdoor season. League play starts as early as Mar. 18 while the grassroots program begins at the end of April.
