Three of four Surrey schools competing at the 16-team Senior AAA boys high school soccer provincial championship tournament last weekend placed in the top 10.

The Panorama Ridge Thunder edged the Tamanawis Wildcats 3-2 in a shootout Saturday to claim fifth place, leaving their Newton rivals in sixth.

Both the Thunder and Tamanawis placed second in their four-team group in pool play. Panorama Ridge went 2-0-1 (won-lost-tied) while the Wildcats were 2-1-0. Both teams won playoff games Friday afternoon.

The third school to place in the top 10 was also from the Newton area, as the Sullivan Heights Stars topped Eric Hamber 3-2 Saturday to place ninth. The Stars were 1-1-1 in pool play to place third.

The fourth Surrey school at the provincial championship were the Queen Elizabeth Royals, who placed 14th. The Royals lost all three games in pool play before defeating Mt. Baker of Cranbrook 3-0 in a playoff game Friday.
