Senior Boys Soccer Team Brings Home Bronze in Provincials
After earning the Fraser Valley Championship, our Senior Boys Soccer team headed off to Naksup, BC for provincials. The team represented Meadowridge and the Fraser Valley well, winning all three of their first games. In their semi-final match, the team experienced their first loss of the season to the eventual Gold Medalists.
In their last match for final standings, the boys were down 1-0 in the first half, but battled it up back up to tie the game in the late second half. In overtime, a beautiful goal earned the boys Bronze in provincials.
"This was a true team, and not a bunch of individual players," notes Mr. Spurgeon, "and it was a truly special season."
The team earned our first-ever Fraser Valley Championship in soccer—and it was in our first year playing the full valley regular league!
The team finished the season with an almost perfect standing: ten wins, one tie, and just one loss.
The team performed exceptionally at provincials; in the five games played, the boys came out with a 4-1 record. A major accomplishment, considering they were up against 16 other teams who qualified to represent their respective districts at provincials.
Congratulations to our coaches and players! Go Gryphons Go!
