Two golds for Coquitlam soccer clubs
The Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club’s under-16 boys club will represent B.C. at the National Championships next month.
The team qualified for the tournament when they finished in first place during last month’s Provincial Premier Cup finals — the highest youth cup in British Columbia.
Coquitlam’s under-13 girls team also won gold, but are too young to qualify for the Canadian event, which only features under-14, under-16 and under-18 teams.
Four other Coquitlam soccer squads competed in the finals.
The under-13 boys team lost in penalty kicks, while the under-18 boys team lost 3-2 in regulation.
The under-16 girls team also lost in penalty kicks and the under-18 girls squad was shutout 2-0. The under-16 National Club Championships will be held in October in Mt. Pearl, N.L.
