Local teams winless in Premier Division play

Two losses, a tie for Surrey’s VMSL teams

The three teams from Surrey were winless last weekend in Vancouver Metro Soccer League Premier Division play.

The defending provincial champion Surrey United Firefighters were the lone side to earn a point, playing to a 2-2 draw in North Vancouver against Norvan FC.

After falling behind 2-0, United rallied in the last 15 minutes of the first half on goals by Thomas Lowndes and Roman Doutkevitch to tie the score at halftime. Liam Miller assisted on both goals.

Surrey is now in fifth place in the 12-team Premier Division with a 1-3-0 (won-tied-lost) record. They host Inter FC (1-0-3) Saturday afternoon at Cloverdale Athletic Park. Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m.

CCB-TU United fell 4-2 Friday night in Vancouver to Croatia SC, a team which was in last place before earning their first victory of the season.

Croatia opened the scoring, but Milan Rahmati netted a pair of goals to give United a 2-1 lead with 25 minutes to play. Croatia tied the game five minutes later, then after a red card to CCB-TU, netted the winning goal.

CCB-TU, in seventh place at 1-1-2  will host the Langley FC Hurricanes tomorrow (Friday) at 8:30 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park.

ICST Pegasus also lost to a team that had not won in the first three weeks of the season. The Metro-Ford Wolves of Coquitlam stunned Pegasus 4-1 at Newton Athletic Park Friday night.

Adam Costley scored the goal for Pegasus, now at 1-1-2.

Pegasus visits Westside FC (2-1-1) in Vancouver Sunday.
