Cloverdale hosts Premier Division teams

PEGASUS lone local team to win on VMSL’s opening day

ICST Pegasus was the lone winner from Surrey on the first day of play in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s Premier Division last Saturday at Cloverdale Athletic Park.

All 12 teams Premier Division teams opened their regular season in Cloverdale. While Pegasus edged the Vancouver Olympics 1-0, the Surrey United Firefighters played to a draw and CCBRT United lost.

Sahil Sandhu scored in the 65th minute to lift Pegasus to a victory, with goaltender Andy Singh earning the shutout with several outstanding saves.

The Firefighters played Croatia SC to a 1-1 draw in the final game of the day. Tommy Lowndes scored the Surrey goal from the edge of the penalty area after a half-hour of play.

Croatia tied the score with five minutes to play, beating Surrey United goalie Paul Shepherd, who earned Player of the Match honours.

The Firefighters will visit Richmond on Saturday to face Richmond FC Hibernian, 3-1 winners over FC Burnaby last weekend.

CCBRT United were on the losing end of the most lopsided game of the day, a 9-2 setback against the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves in the day’s first game.

Missing several starters, CCBRT got goals from Derrick Bassi and David Hill.

CCBRT United will be at home this weekend, hosting Columbus FC at 8:45 p.m. on Friday night at Newton Athletic Park. The Wolves will host Pegasus in Coquitlam on Saturday.
