The Peninsula Comets soared to provincial gold.
The Comets, representing Vancouver Island in the U14 Girls Gold category, finished first in their pool after going undefeated in the preliminary round against some tough competition from Terrace, Penticton and Kelowna.
The final saw the Comets edge out Coquitlam Galaxy 2-0 to earn the gold medal and this year’s honour as Provincial Champions.
“I am very proud of the commitment that our players and parents have shown these past two years as we worked towards this goal,” said Comets’ coach Griffin Jones.
In addition to capturing the Island and the Provincial B-Cup titles this year, the Comets took the gold medal in the North Shore Thanksgiving tournament and finished first in their Lower Island Soccer division, with 14 wins and one tie in 15 games.
“This is an exceptionally talented group of girls and the provincial title caps a very successful season,” said Jones.
More than 1,500 players from across the province participated in the BC Soccer Provincial B Cup finals.
