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.
