Four tied for fourth

Local soccer teams near the top of FVSL Premier Division

The three local teams in the Fraser Valley Soccer League’s Premier Division are in a four-way tie for fourth place after the second week of play.

PoCo FC is the fourth team in the group that has a win and a loss each.

Two teams which enjoyed a victory in their first Premier Division outings after earning promotion from Division One at the end of last season were each handed their first defeat.

Surrey FC Guildford dropped a 5-2 decision to Coastal FC Peace Arch at South Surrey Athletic Park Saturday afternoon. Matthew Nikitiuk and Ayman Hamza netted the goals for Guildford, who will host the Westcoast Selects tomorrow (Friday) night at Newton Athletic Park.

Zorowar Sandhu was the goal scorer for Surrey FC Temple United Reds, which lost 3-1 on the road to PoCo on Saturday afternoon. Temple United will be in Abbotsford for a match Sunday with Magnuson Ford United.

North Delta evened their record Saturday night with a 3-0 victory over the Port Moody Gunners, one of two teams in the Premier Division to lose each of their first two games.

Lucas Johns tallied a pair of goals for North Delta, with Paul Ballard notching one. North Delta will be idle from Premier Division play, but will take to the field Saturday at 2 p.m. at Sands Park for a first round Pacific Cup contest against Sooke Celtic FC of the Vancouver Island Soccer League.

The Pacific Cup is a challenge trophy between the top four teams of the previous season in both the Fraser Valley and  Vancouver Island leagues.
