The U-13 Metro SurDel Sting team finished off a tremendous season by being crowned Provincial Champions in the BCSA Provincial "A" Cup Championships in Kamloops. After being crowned Coastal Cup Champions back in May, the Sting headed up to Kamloops and went undefeated thru the round robin portion of the competiton beating the Interior Champion team Kamloops Blaze 4-2, SFC Pegasus 2-1 and tying Semi STL 1-1. The Provincial championship match saw a rematch of the Coastal Cup final against Semi STL with the game being played in sweltering 37C degree conditions.After being down to one sub for most of this match thru injuries the Sting came out flying and scored their first goal inside the first minute. Ten minutes from the half though saw the Semi team even the score but just after the restart of the second half the Sting once again went up. As time wound down the lack of subs and the heat started to take its toll and Semi scored with fifteen minutes left to even the match.
The Selects continued their amazing season by winning their 3rd consecutive tournament and repeating as Mayor’s Cup Champions. It wasn’t easy as the team’s roster was greatly diminished due to Spring Break vacations, illnesses, and injuries. But in the end, it just didn’t matter as the ladies resolve saw them though to finish the tournament without conceding a single goal.

The 2011/12 SurDel Inferno completed its amazing season with one last run to the Kamloops Slurpee Cup over the May long weekend. As the only SurDel team representing our club, the girls played four great matches. Saturday morning, Williams Lake Storm Thunder fielded a very defensive team and kept the Inferno scoreless in the first half. In the second however, the tenacity of the Inferno produced five unanswered goals. Their second game of the tournament was a rematch against the Coastal Classic Cup finalists the Aldergrove Ambush. Aldergrove scored first but before the game ended, the Inferno came back with three fabulous goals to win 3-1.

The U-13 Metro SurDel Sting took the gold medal at the Coastal A Cup Championships on Saturday May 5. In a hard fought battle with Semi STL the Sting went ahead off a
brilliant free kick from Riley Moore from twenty yards out that curled over the wall and into the far top corner for the lead. Just before the halftime break the Sting doubled their advantage as Hailey Lemon blasted home a booming penalty shot that left the Semi keeper with no chance. The Sting's outstanding defence and goal keeping carried the team the rest of the way in a 2-0 final score. The Sting went thru the Coastal Championship round robin without conceding a goal and this is a testament to the players hardwork, dedication and focus. The Sting team will now head off to the Provincial Championships in Kamloops in July. The coaches want to express how proud they are of the team for putting in a ton of effort all season long to acheive this goal. Way to go Sting!!

The U14 Bronze Red Bulls captured the Classic Cup on Sunday, defending the championship they had won in U13. It was a very early start and the field was soaked from days of rain, but the Red Bulls came through with a great effort to take the cup by a 2-1 score over the GEU Angels. Anna Culchesky went through several opponents before sending a pass to Samantha Moore who sent a shot past a sprawling keeper to put the Red Bulls up 1-0 at the half. In the 2nd half, the Red Bulls took a 2-0 lead after Anastasia Torrebadell made a great pass to Taylor Macfarlane who sent it over the keeper’s outstretched arms.
With minutes left in the game, the Angels made it 2-1 sending a shot past keeper Rayna Sutherland. The goal, the first Rayna had let in for 5 months and 4 days! Lauren Laternus was named game MVP for her strong work in midfield. Jasneet Pooni, Cassie Clarke, Rita Bopanrai, Paarus Kahlon, Marina Mott, Jourdan White, Tania Khangura, Ashley Kullar, Rachel Partridge, Bailie Snow and Julia Ross all made strong contributions in the win.
The U15 Silver Inferno finished their season with a perfect record and claimed the Coastal Classic Cup on Sunday, April 1st with a close game against a strong opponent, the Aldergrove Ambush. After 80 minutes, the score was 0-0 thanks to the rock solid defensive performance of Sarah, Zoe, Hayley, Ashley and Leanne. At one point, a penalty shot on top of the 18 yard box looked like it might change the course of the game, but stretching her finger tips to the cross bar, Kira was able to make a beautiful save and stop the Ambush from scoring.
Moving the ball precisely and with finesse in the middle of the field were Alexa, Caralyn and Courtney making superb passes to the outside mid-fielders Claire, Shayla and Sarah who ran the ball deep into the Ambush zone. With constant pressure from our strikers Ashtyn, Courtney, Kelsey and Megan, the Ambush keeper was kept busy throughout the game with numerous shots.

The U-13 Metro Sting squad took gold at the recent North Shore Thanksgiving Tournament. With the Sting being bumped up into the U-14 bracket they had an outstanding effort against their much larger opponents and to top things off they went four games without conceding a goal. Victories over Port Moody 1-0, North Shore 1-0, West Vancouver 3-0 and a hard fought championship win of 1-0 over Kamloops secured first place. An outstanding team effort as the girls played hard and used their skill and conditioning to carry the weekend. Well done ladies.
