The Chatham U13 Strikers ended a great season this past weekend. At the District Cup Tournament in London the Strikers knocked off number one seed Byron in the Semi Finals prior to coming up just short in the Finals. The Strikers lost in a shootout in the final after regulation and overtime could not separate them from Strathroy.

In their last 5 league games the Strikers rose from 5th to 2nd in the overall standings with 3 wins and two ties. The Chatham Strikers played in the EMDSL London District 1 League.

The team was known for stingy defense lead by Leah Gervais in net and Sol Lee Jung in center defense. Top goal scorers on the team were Alex Maryschak and Lucie Maine. Most improved players over the year were Abby Denomy and Ashlynn Spence.
