Jaj ties the game
The Guildford Silver Ghosts played to a 1-1 tie with the Ladner Thistles in a girls under-13 Silver B game.
Natasha Baur pounced on a rebound from Robeen Jaj’s for the Ghosts goal, which tied the game near the end of the first half.
The Ghosts were unlucky not to break the deadlock in the second half, as Jacqui Bodwell, Reanu Sekhon, and Sara Rai all created chances to score only to be stopped by the Thistles goalie. Jaj also had a great chance to net the winner, but hit the crossbar with a 25-yard free kick.
Erin Sandhu, Riley Murdoch, and Kim Nguyen also turned in outstanding games.
