SURREY — A long trip to New Brunswick had a silver lining for the girls of Surrey United’s U14 team.

The squad placed second at the Sport Chek National Club Championships held in Moncton.

As the B.C. reps in the 10-team soccer tournament, United fell 2-1 in extra time Monday (Oct. 10) to the Foothills squad from Calgary, during a final played in driving wind and rain.

In their five games at nationals, the Arianne Adams-coached team scored 10 goals and allowed three. Amy Connorton and Madelin Mah led the way with three goals each.

United’s 17-player roster also includes Jaya Bains, Jasmine Brar, Sophie Campbell, Jasdeep Dhaliwal, Sarah Fewings, Ayanah Hassan, Mehik Khatra, Sophia Kramer, Soninka Nandha, Melissa Palmer, Sophia Pol, Rachelle Sher-Gill, Anikka Suomi, Mikayla Tupper and Breanne Weflen.

• Meanwhile, the men of Surrey Pegasus FC fell out of contention early in Challenge Trophy action in St. John’s, Nfld.

The Newton-based Premier division squad lost one and tied another in Group C play last week, ending any hope of them winning a second national title.

Pegasus finished the tourney with a record of two wins, one tie and two losses, scoring nine goals and allowing six. Dilpreet Samra netted three goals during the tournament, while Chetan Jhooty and Azad Palani each scored a pair for the Paul Bahia-coached team.
