United clinches cup berth

With two wins in Pacific Coast Soccer League play last week, Surrey United  has clinched a berth in the season-ending Challenge Cup playoff tournament July 23-24 in Penticton.

The women’s team blanked Coquitlam 4-0 last Thursday at Cloverdale Athletic Park, with Katie Thorlakson netting two goals, and April Coffin and Carina Lauzon scoring singles.

Sunday afternoon in Kelowna, Lauzon had a pair of tallies in a 6-1 victory over the Okanagan FC. Coffin, Natalie Fabbro, Betty Casey and Jendya French also scored.

United’s record improved to 7-3-2 (won-lost-tied), good for fourth place in the 10-team league. They are 10 points up on both Abbotsford SA and the TSS Academy, both of which have just two games remaining. The top four teams qualify for the Challenge Cup.

United concluded league play last night with a road game in Abbotsford.

Surrey United’s men’s team won its only game of the week, clinching second place in the PCSL standings. Surrey edged Victoria United 2-1 in the provincial capital, pulling four points ahead of third place Khalsa SC with one game to play. Ryan Reynolds and Tom Lowndes were the goal scorers.

Surrey was at home last night to Khalsa in the final game of the regular season for both teams.
