Soccer squads stay perfect

Men’s team in first, women in second

Surrey’s United’s two teams remain perfect in Pacific Coast Soccer League play.

The men’s team moved into first-place in their seven-team league with three wins in as many games, the two most recent victories coming on a road trip last weekend.

Angus Burke netted three goals for Surrey in Kamloops Saturday, leading United to a 4-2 victory over the winless Kamloops Excel SC. Justin Carvery also tallied for the winners.

A day later in Kelowna, Surrey edged the Okanagan Challenge 2-1 on goals by Andrew Proctor and Graeme Webber.

The only unbeaten team remaining in the men’s division, United will host the 1-1-1 (won-lost-tied) Mid Island Highlanders Saturday at 2 p.m. at Cloverdale Athletic Park.

United’s women’s team is also a perfect 3-0 (won-lost) after a 10-4 thumping of Okanagan FC Sunday in Cloverdale.

Surrey is second in the 10-team women’s league, trailing the 4-0-1 Vancouver Thunderbirds.

Betty Casey tallied three times for Surrey, with April Coffin and Carina Lauzon scoring twice each. Rachael Pelat, Jesse Holowatzy and Sarah Fitzmaurice contributed with a goal each.

Casey now has five goals on the season, tied with Nahiomy Ortiz of the Whitecaps FC Prospects and Coquitlam Metro Ford’s Michelle Francis.

United plays once next weekend, in Coquitlam against the 2-1-1 Metro Ford squad on Saturday afternoon.
