SOCCER: Golden weekend at provies for U14 Delta Coastal Selects

SURREY — It was a golden weekend on the soccer pitch for the U14 Delta Coastal Selects.

The girls team beat some of the best metro select squads to win the B.C. provincial championships held in South Surrey last weekend, blanking the top-ranked Port Coquitlam Castillans in the finals.

“We took on some tough competition this past weekend, playing teams from Kamloops and Courtney-Comox, but the girls rose to the occasion and were successful in taking top honours," head coach Gord McGahey told the Now.

"The girls have worked very hard this season to get to this point, so it was really nice for them to be able to see the results of their hard work and dedication to their sport."

The team, which includes girls from Surrey and Delta, finished second overall in league play with a 14-4-4 record.

"It has been really fun coaching this hard-working group of girls," noted Jonathan Bryant, assistant coach.

"We are really proud of how well they played as a team; they took on some tough competition and really worked hard under pressure. We look forward to moving forward into the 2015/2016 season with this talented group of girls."

Players on the U14 Delta Coastal Selects roster are Mackenzie McGahey, Izabella Bryant, Taryn Webster, Qiyang Hong, Natasha Knudsen, Madyson Gustafson, Shayla Richardson, Mikaela Balla, Olivia Wickett, Rachel Kilbrai, Lexy MacLean, Alanna Sydenham, Sophie Poulton, Breanne Gallagher and Jennifer Tinnes.
