B.C. Soccer provincial championships

The Guildford Vipers added a fourth championship to a very successful season.

The boys under-16 soccer team went undefeated at the Provincial B Cup tournament in Penticton last weekend, clinching the B.C. championship with a 4-2 win over Coquitlam Ford Liverpool.

The Vipers qualified for the provincials with a victory at the Coastal B Cup final in April, a trophy they added to District Cup and League Cup honours won earlier in the season.

Guildford rolled through round robin play, not allowing a goal in wins over the Terrace Kermodes (9-0), Penticton Pinnacles (5-0) and Creston (7-0). Devin Sylte was perfect in net, earning three consecutive shutouts.

In the final against Coquitlam, Alex Bideau netted three goals and Mauricio Gomez added a single. The hat trick was the second of the tournament for Bideau, who also netted three against Terrace. Gomez also recorded a hat trick, tallying a trio of goals against Terrace.

Other players on the B.C. championship team were Jeffrey Agostinho, Jasko Ajanovic, Ahmad Bhamji, Jefferson Garcia, Amauri Gomez, Jason Jassal, Dylan Jordan, Dorian Kolanczyk, Abdul Kulan, Joel Meszaros, Matthew Melo, Nathaniel Miles, Jason Sangha and Alvin Zhao.

Head coach Erick Garcia was assisted by Saleem Bhamji and Oliver Garcia. The team manager was Lucy Agostinho.

n The Surrey United Guildford Selects won the girls A under-14 provincial championship, defeating the Kamloops Blaze 2-0 Saturday in Penticton. The Selects will play in the national championships  Oct. 5-10 in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador.

n It was an all-Surrey final in the under-17 girls B tournament, where the Surrey Breakers Elite edged the Surrey United Force 2-1 in the championship game.

The Elite placed first in their three-team group with two wins in as many games. The Force advanced on goal difference, ripping Nelson 6-1 before playing the host Penticton Pinnacles to a 2-2 draw.

n Scoring 17 goals in three games, the Surrey United Wild Ones had little trouble capturing the B.C. championship in the under-18 girls B age group. In the final, the Wild Ones got past the Cowichan Valley Evolution 3-1.

n The Sur-Del Force placed third in the under-14 girls B group, winning two of three round robin games before edging the Penticton Pinnacles in the bronze medal match.
