A pair of ties on their home pitch cost Surrey United a share of first place in the Pacific Coast Soccer League.

The men’s team played to a 4-4 tie with Kamloops Excel SC Saturday at Cloverdale Athletic Park, then battled to a 2-2 draw with the Okanagan Challenge Sunday.

Ryan Reynolds with a pair, Tom Lowndes and Wyatt Seddon-Johnstone were Saturday’s scorers, with Angus Burke and Andrew Proctor netting the goals a day later.

United’s record is 4-2-2 (won-lost-tied) with four games to play. Now in third place, they trail first place Vancouver by four points, and are one back of Victoria United. Surrey hosts the Thunderbirds tonight at 7 p.m. in Cloverdale.

Surrey’s women’s team was beaten by the league’s top two teams last week, and have slipped to fifth place at 3-3.

Kate Qually tallied in a 3-1 loss to the Whitecaps Prospects at Simon Fraser University Thursday night. On Saturday afternoon, they fell 3-0 to the Vancouver Thunderbirds in Cloverdale.
