NEWTON — Chetan “C.J.” Jhooty scored twice to lift Surrey Pegasus FC to a provincial soccer title on Saturday (May 14).

The Newton-based Premier division team beat Coquitlam Metro Ford Wolves 2-1 on the pitch in Langford, on Vancouver Island.

The come-from-behind win earned the Vancouver Metro Soccer League squad a trip to the Sport Chek National Club Championships this coming October.

Against the Wolves, Jhooty scored to tie the game in the 69th minute, in a give-and-go with Javid Khan. Then, 10 minutes later, Jhooty notched another with a penalty kick.

“All year, our goal was to win this and get back to the national championships,” said coach Paul Bahia.

The Surrey team’s journey to St. John’s this fall will mark its third trip to nationals. They won it all in 2004 in Charlottetown and finished second in 2011 in Brossard.

In St. John’s, Pegasus will open against Yellowknife FC on Oct. 5. CLICK HERE for details about the Challenge Cup tournament.
