Perfect Pegasus in first

Surrey squad atop Premier Division with three wins in three games

ICST Pegasus made in three in a row to start the Vancouver Metro Soccer League season, blanking Inter FC 2-0 to remain tied for first place in the Premier Division.

Pegasus has a perfect 3-0-0 (won-tied-lost) record, a mark matched only by West Van FC. The two co-leaders are four points up on the third-place Surrey United Firefighters.

Sahil Sandhu netted both goals for Pegasus. He netted the winner after 30 minutes of play, converting his own rebound, then added an insurance goal just before full-time.

Pegasus will visit 1-1-1 Croatia SC in Vancouver Friday night.

Surrey United, one of five teams still unbeaten three games into the season, played the Langley Hurricanes to a 2-2 tie at Cloverdale Athletic Park Sunday afternoon.

The Firefighters took a 2-0 lead in the first half, as Angus Burke scored in the 15th minute then assisted on a goal by Dylan Sheehan.

The Hurricanes responded with a goal just before halftime, then knotted the score with a half hour to play.

With a win and two ties in three starts, United is alone in third place while Langley sits in a tie for seventh place with three ties in three games.

Surrey’s third Premier Division team, CCBRT United is still looking for its first victory after falling 4-2 to EDC Burnaby.

United’s first goal came from Taku Bradshaw, who scored an unassisted goal early in the game to tie the score 1-1. Burnaby was up 3-1 when the Surrey squad was reduced to 10-men. CCBRT United cur the difference to one goal when Justin Sidhu had his shot go in the net off a defender.

Burnaby added a fourth goal late in the game, leaving United with a 0-1-2 record, tied for last place in the 12-team Premier Division.

CCBRT United will host the Firefighters Friday night at 8:45 p.m. at Newton Athletic Park.
