“It was a very good game for us,” said Guildford head coach Azid Palani.

“The lads were very happy to win the first premier game they have played in.”

Guildford United placed second in Division One last season, with 10-5-3 (won-lost-tied) record four points back of the Fraser Valley Red Devils.

The SFC Temple United Reds also opened their season with a win, awarded a 5-0 win by forfeit over Magnuson Ford United of Abbotsford.

“It’s our first year in the premier division and we hope to be up here for awhile,” said Reds manager Sanjeev Hundal.

North Delta SC lost their first game, falling 5-1 at home to the Westcoast FC Selects. Kevan Gaull tallied for North Delta.

SFC Guildford will be at the South Surrey Athletic Park Saturday afternoon, kicking off at 12:30 p.m. against Coastal FC Peace Arch.

Coastal FC tied their first game 2-2 with the Red Devils.
