Chilliwack’s Katie Lampen earns Canada West recognition

The Sardis secondary school grad has been a freshman sensation for UFV's women's soccer squad.

Katie Lampen has given the University of the Fraser Valley women’s soccer team an offensive spark, and her production has been recognized with a Canada West third star of the week award.

Lampen, a rookie winger from Chilliwack, accounted for all of the Cascades’ offence in a pair of 1-1 draws on the weekend vs. tough divisional opponents.

On Friday, the Sardis secondary grad scored a clutch goal in the 86th minute to give the Cascades a 1-1 tie with the U SPORTS No. 8-ranked UBC Thunderbirds. On Saturday, she opened the scoring vs. the Victoria Vikes in the 12th minute, volleying home Brittney Zacharuk’s cross in spectacular fashion, and she continued to generate positive offensive play throughout the contest.

Lampen is on a three-game goal-scoring streak, giving her the team lead with four goals on the season, and she ranks second among CW rookies in that department.

Lampen and the Cascades (2-2-4) hit the road this week for a pair of games – Friday at the Calgary Dinos, and Sunday at the UNBC Timberwolves.
