Mountain United FC hosted BC Soccer’s Provincial Premier Cup Finals at the Burnaby Lake West field complex last Sunday June 28, 2015. Boys and Girls games in each of the U13, U14, U15, U16 and U18 Divisions vying for Provincial Championships were played simultaneously on fields 1 & 3.
BC Soccer staff and Board members assisted with the organization of the event and were also on hand for Awards presentation to all Winners and Runners-up. Representatives from MUFC’s Districts and Club’s were in attendance, as were staff and directors from the various BCSPL Clubs. MUFC thanks everyone for being a part of the League’s Premier event. The venue was set, the weather was perfect, all that remained…. the games!
MUFC was well represented with 4 of our teams in the Championships. Our U13 Boys started the day off in typical fashion by falling behind 1-0 early in the game to Fraser Valley but roared back to take control of the game and come away with a deserved 4-2 decision. Next up for MUFC was our U15 Boys, they controlled the game early and led 1-0 but in a wildly exciting 2nd half which saw 6 goals, they came up one goal short losing 4-3 to the Metro Ford team that simply refused to quit.
One the girls side our U16 Girls were in for a tough match with League winners from Coastal. Our girls played a spirited game, all the while maintaining their MUFC style of play, but couldn’t manage a goal losing 3-0 to the Coastal girls. MUFC’s U18 Girls controlled much of their match versus Surrey United and prevailed by a 3-1 score.
All things considered the day was a resounding success. MUFC came away with Provincial Champions at U13 Boys & U18 Girls, disappointing losses in U15 Boys & U16 Girls are painful but our teams played MUFC soccer throughout. Congratulations to all participants!
