Angus Burke tallied his second hat trick in three games, lifting Surrey United to a 4-1 win over the Mid-Isle Highlanders Saturday afternoon at Cloverdale Athletic Park.
The win was the fourth in as many starts for United, which sits atop the Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) standings, three points ahead of both the Vancouver Thunderbirds and Victoria United.
Colin Streckman netted the other Surrey goal.
After playing in Port Coquitlam against Khalsa SC last night (Thursday), United will host Victoria Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in Cloverdale.
Surrey United’s women’s team is in third place in the PCSL, despite being the only team in the 10-team league with a perfect record. Winners of all three of their games, Surrey is a point behind the 3-0-1 (won-lost-tied) Whitecaps Prospects, and seven back of the 5-0-1 Vancouver Thunderbirds.
Surrey plays just once this week, travelling to the North Shore for a contest Sunday with 1-3-0 West Vancouver FC.
