Provincial Premier Cup Finals – Results
This might not be the PC way to say this but… Mountain United kicked *** this weekend! 4 Provincial Champions!!!
What a display by all our teams in Kelowna on Saturday and Sunday. We dominated 2 of the games and were in position to win all 6 of our matches. In the end we came up just short in 2 of the games while winning the other 4.
Our U14 Boys played a great game but just couldn’t find the back of the net and lost 0-1. Meanwhile the U16 Girls lost a heart-breaker 8-9 in PK’s. Two tough losses to be sure but both were great games and our teams should be proud of how they handled themselves. Well done!
Our first Provincial Champions of the weekend were the U13 Boys, they dominated Fusion, winning by a comfortable 5-1 margin. In similar fashion the U16 Boys were all over the Coastal team and cruised to a 4-0 win. On the Girls side our U15’s won a close one over Fraser Valley while the U18’s made things very exciting, they waited till overtime to finally pull ahead of Surrey United in an exciting 2-1 win.
All things considered this was an incredible weekend for the Club. To all our players & team staff as well as all the parents that made the journey to be a part of the Provincial Championships, amazing job! Congratulations!!!
U13 Boys 2003: Mountain – 5 vs Fusion FC – 1
U14 Boys 2002: Fraser Valley – 1 vs Mountain – 0

Nationals – G16-1999’s step up
Our MUFC Girls U16 1999 team has taken yet another step forward. These girls sure didn’t let a disappointing loss at the Provincial Championships in June affect them for very long. The team was asked to sub-in for a team that couldn’t make the Nationals in Surrey, no problem, they’re on it.
Our Provincial Champion U18 1997 team couldn’t manage a roster at the Nationals due to post-secondary commitments. Having the 1999 girls step in as our lone National’s team meant a lot to our Club, they didn’t disappoint and we really appreciate their efforts!
This team has come a long way since the initial tryouts years ago. Struggling their first two years to win a game they have constantly improved to the point where this year they are one of the top teams in the Premier League.
At Nationals in Surrey they compiled a respectable record. They lost close games to top teams while winning 2, tying 1 and losing 2. They are now ranked 9th in the country, well done girls! Here is their Nationals scorecard:
Nova Scotia lost 2-1
Quebec lost 3-1
New Brunswick 1-1
PEI won 11-0
Yukon won 10-0
Provincial Premier Cup
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!
Results of all games:
U13 Mountain United FC 4-2 Fraser Valley Premier
U14 Surrey United 1-0 Coquitlam Metro-Ford SC
U15 Coquitlam Metro-Ford FC 4-3 Mountain United FC

BCSPL’s Mountain United FC Girls Teams Earn Top Spots
Mountain United FC is celebrating two recent US tournament successes as their Girls U17 and U18 teams both came back with impressive first place finishes in two separate Premier soccer level US Winter Classic College Showcase events, one in Seattle and the other in Portland.
Mountain FC’s U17 Girls team were looking to start off 2015 on the right foot following a challenging & competitive trip to the Canadian Nationals in October. They did just that by claiming the championship trophy at the Pacific Northwest Winter Classic College Showcase in Seattle, January 16-19.
The U18 Girls matched that by claiming the FC Portland Premier Winter College Showcase in Oregon. This team captured the BCSPL League Championship back in November and the players will be keen to maintain their form as they enter their final phase of youth soccer in the BCSPL.
Both teams are to be congratulated for their undefeated runs at these two tournaments and for once again displaying an impressive brand of MUFC soccer.

2014 Provincial Premier Cup Champions – MUFC U16 Girls
Our U16 Girls captured Gold at the Provincial Premier Cup Finals on Sunday, June 30th at McLeod Park in Langley. Their opponent was Coquitlam Metro Ford and once again these two teams were engaged in a very close contest. Regulation play ended at 1-1 with MUFC’s goal being scored by Lauren Fuerderer on a nice set up from Jordan Angus. MUFC took the lead in overtime on a terrific volley from Emma Cunningham, only to have CMF come back to tie the game. This meant penalty kicks to determine the winner. Brooke Molby was solid in goal and saw one penalty attempt go high and over the bar. That’s all the MUFC girls needed as all of their shots found the net with Jenna Gurniak calmly converted the fifth to claim the Championship. Well done to all of the players and to the staff, Jeff Hodgson, Paul Pedersen, Ashley Dunn and Shawn Sutherland. This team will now represent British Columbia at the CSA Club Nationals to be held in Newfoundland in October.

Northwest League Champions Cup
Three MUFC teams traveled to Woodinville, Washington on December 14th and 15th to compete in the inaugural Northwest League Champions Cup. This competition brings together the League Cup Champions of the BCSPL versus their American counterparts from the Regional Club League in Washington State. All three MUFC matches were of very good quality and impressed the spectators on hand.
In the U13 Girls match, MUFC met Washington Crossfire. The back-and-forth affair saw the teams each score three times resulting in a draw. Rather than overtime, the competition rules had the teams go directly to penalty kicks. The back-and-forth continued as 18 shooters (nine per team) were required before Crossfire emerged as winners. A fantastic effort by all of our girls in a highly entertaining match.
Meanwhile, on the adjacent field, the U13 Boys squared off against Seattle United. Both teams demonstrated excellent technical abilities and possession oriented soccer. They traded attacks for the better part of the first half before MUFC began to assert themselves and cruised to a 3-1 victory. All four goals scored in this match were of the highest quality.
Finally, in the U15 Girls final, MUFC came through with a narrow 1-0 victory over PAC West. Again, the teams put on a nice display of constructive play throughout the match. MUFC came close several times including an in-close opportunity that rocked the crossbar. Eventually, one of MUFC’s creative runs forward led to a penalty and the eventual winner. Congratulations to our teams for representing the Club so well at the NW League Champions Cup!

Our U13 Girls capped off an excellent season by capturing the Provincial Premier Cup with a convincing 3-0 victory over Coastal FC on Sunday morning.

Emma Regan and Julia Grosso scored for MUFC while a third was recorded as an own goal on an effective cross from Jessica Ambrosio.

Northwest Champions League – Finalists
Our U15 (1998) Girls traveled to Portland, Oregon February 1-3, 2013 to compete in the Final Four of the Northwest Champions League Tournament. This competition was played out over three rounds of play beginning in August, with Round 2 in October. The Girls went undefeated through the first two rounds with a record of five wins and one draw to reach the Finals. In the Semi-Final, the Girls took on FC Nova from Boise, Idaho and came away with a well-deserved 1-0 win. The scoreline was not necessarily indicative of play as MUFC maintained possession and dictated the tempo of the game. With this win, they were through to the Final to take on Tualatin Hills United (THUSC) , a strong team from nearby Beaverton, Oregon who also held an undefeated record. Unfortunately, the girls were beat 2-0 in the final. Coach Jeff Hodgson commented on the quality of their opponent but was also very proud of the manner in which his team competed throughout. Congratulations to the girls and to all four of our teams that competed in the NWCL. MUFC teams made three Finals which was a great accomplishment.

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 here.Posted on: December 10, 2012

This team has been on quite a roll and as Provincial Premier Cup Champions, they will travel to Prince Edward Island in October to represent MUFC and British Columbia at the 2012 Canadian Club Championships.
