Pegasus loses first game in league play

Men’s soccer team to compete at national tournament in Quebec

Just days before competing at the Challenge Trophy national championship tournament in Brossard, Quebec, ICST Pegasus lost for the first time in Vancouver Metro Soccer League play this season.

Pegasus was blanked 2-0 by Surrey United Firefighters Friday night at Newton Athletic Park, falling three points out of first place in the Premier Division with a 2-1-1 (won-tied-lost) record.

Ryan Reynolds assisted on both Surrey goals, crossing to Andrew Proctor for the first tally early in the game, then firing the ball off the Pegasus goal post before it was put in the net by Niall Thompson.

United is 2-0-1 and in fifth place in the Premier Division. They host Columbus FC Saturday at 3 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park.

The Delta Hurricanes picked up their first win in the Premier Division, blanking the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves 2-0. Hamzah Gurung netted both goals, scoring the winning goal in the 81st minute, and adding an insurance goal on a pass from Joti Thind with just minutes to play.

The 1-0-2 Hurricanes host Westside FC Sunday at noon at John Oliver Park.

Pegasus began play at the national tournament yesterday against New Brunswick, then will face Saskatchewan this afternoon in their final round robin. Two teams from the three-team pool will advance to an eight-team playoff Saturday through Monday.

– North Delta SC earned its first win of the season and moved out of last place in the Fraser Valley Soccer League’s Premier Division with a 4-3 victory over Langley United Saturday at Delsom Park

Nick Baronian, Paul Bolina, Lucas Johns and Adam Bingham were the North Delta goal scorers.

North Delta now has a 1-0-2 record, tied for seventh place with Langley, and will visit the Surrey FC Athletic Club Sunday evening at 6 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park.

The Athletic Club lost for the first time this season last Sunday, falling 1-0 to the Abbotsford Mariners. Athletic Club is tied for third place with a 2-0-1 record.

– The quarterfinal match-ups for the Carlsberg Pacific Cup have been determined for the weekend of Oct. 28-29.

The inter-league knockout competition features eight teams from the Vancouver Metro Soccer League, and four each from the Fraser Valley (FVSL) and Vancouver Island (VISL) leagues.

Four VMSL teams remain, and all four will play at home, three of which are local teams.

Surrey United will host the Port Moody Gunners of the FVSL on Saturday at 3 p.m. at Cloverdale Athletic Park, while the defending B.C. champion ICST Pegasus will host Gordon Head of the VISL the same day at 4 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park.

On Sunday at noon, Delta Hurricanes host Surrey FC Athletic Club of the Fraser Valley league at John Oliver Park.

The lone match not held locally has the Richmond Hibernians hosting PoCo FC of the FVSL.
