Surrey all-stars on Royals roster

The Douglas College Royals finished fifth at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association men’s soccer championships in Coquitlam last week.

New Westminster’s Dylan Myers scored a goal while midfielder Jordan Marini had a hat trick as Douglas defeated the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) Ooks 4-1 in the fifth place game Saturday.

The Royals, the PACWEST league and provincial playoff champions, began play at the eight-team tournament with a 7-1 victory over NAIT on Wednesday. Forward Javin Khan, a North Surrey Secondary graduate, tallied three times for Douglas. Defender Dylan Myers, and midfielders Mark McQuade and Jag Gill (Guildford Park Secondary) netted once each.

The Royals were knocked out of championship contention Thursday, when a last-minute goal lifted the Vancouver Island Mariners to a 2-1 win. Douglas knocked off the Mariners 3-0 in the PACWEST final two weeks prior to the national tournament. Sahil Sandhu of Surrey scored the lone Douglas goal.

Sandhu and Gill were the goal scorers Saturday, but Douglas lost 3-2 in penalties to Cegep Garneau Elans. Sandhu and Gill were named tournament all-stars.
