Promoted team shares Premier Division lead in Fraser Valley Soccer League

Surrey FC Guildford is on pace to achieve their goal for the 2012-13 Fraser Valley Soccer League season.

Promoted to the first division in the offseason, Guildford is looking to avoid relegation from the 10-team Premier Division. And after three games in the elite group, Surrey FC has shown it’s a realistic target.

Guildford won it’s second game of the season, edging the Westcoast FC Selects Friday night at Newton Athletic Park.

Neal Kandola, Osman Palani and Anthony Vlasic tallied for Guildford, which is now tied for first place with the Selects and a 2-0-0 (won-lost-tied) Langley FC side.

Surrey FC will play on the road Saturday night, visiting the 0-2-0 Port Moody Gunners.

North Delta SC hosted Sooke Celtic in a Pacific Cup game, an eight-team tournament featuring the top four teams from last season’s Vancouver Island and Fraser Valley Leagues. North Delta got goals from Nick Baronian and Kyle Logan, but was eliminated 3-2 on penalty kicks.

At 1-1-1 in the FVSL Premier Division, North Delta will visit Abbotsford United Sunday afternoon. After two losses to open the season, Abbotsford is one of two teams without a point in the Premier Division standings.

The Surrey FC Temple Reds were idle last weekend, and have played just once in the first three weeks of the season. Awarded a 5-0 forfeit win over Abbotsford in the first week, the 1-1-0 Reds will visit the Westcoast Selects tomorrow (Friday) night in Maple Ridge.
