Two Surrey teams have moved on to the Provincial Cup quarterfinals, but the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s (VMSL) best team isn’t one of them.

Surrey United Firefighters, winners of both the VMSL Imperial Cup and Premier Division titles this past season, lost 2-0 to Columbus SC Saturday afternoon in Cloverdale.

ICST Pegasus travelled to Victoria Sunday afternoon, and after falling behind 1-0 early in the match, got goals from Azad Palani and Niko Marcina for a 2-1 victory over Bays United.

The Punjab Hurricanes, relegated to Division One of the VMSL for next season, stayed alive in Provincial Cup play with a 4-1 victory over the Fraser Valley Soccer League’s Athletic Club of B.C. Bobby Jhutty had a hat trick for the Hurricanes, with Pami Birring adding a single.
