National U17 Women’s Team ID Camp
Our congratulations to Simmrin Dhaliwal and Rachel Jones, two recent players with MUFC who have been invited to a National U17 Identification Camp in Vaughn, Ontario, December 14-20, 2012. This camp brings together 24 players born in 1997 in order to begin preparations for competitions in 2014. Simmrin, a playmaking midfielder was a member of our very strong U16 (1996) team which claimed the Provincial Premier Cup this summer leading to an appearance at the Club Nationals in October. Rachel, also a strong and creative midfielder was a member of our U15 (1997) team and was a call-up to the Club Nationals with the 1996 group. Both girls are now members of the Vancouver Whitecaps U18 Elite Program. Good luck Simmrin and Rachel!
2012 Northwest Champions League
Both of MUFC’s U13 Initiation Teams (2000) participated in the Finals of the Northwest Champions League, December 1/2, 2012 in Portland, Oregon. The NWCL is comprised of three rounds of play including the finals. Both teams emerged from Divisions of 15 teams coming from the Western States and BC. Round 1 was held in late August while Round 2 was played during Thanksgiving in October. Qualifications to the Finals were given to the top four teams. In the semi finals, our Boys came away with a hard fought 3-2 victory over the Boise Nationals while our Girls dispatched a strong team from Seattle Crossfire, 1-0. In the Final matches, our Boys could not overcome a three goal half-time deficit or the strong wind conditions, eventually falling 3-1 to the Seattle Crossfire. The Girls came away as Champions claiming a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Timbers from Washington State. Congratulations to both teams on their exceptional performances through this extended competition. We are certainly proud of the way you have represented Mountain United FC. Well done! Our Girls Champions are pictured below.
