Following a 2-1 win against Coquitlam Metro, the U21 men’s team is now through to the quarterfinals.

“Another great competitive weekend for West Coast FC,” said club president Dan Mikolay. “We are proud of the success of all of our teams.

“Our club focus on individual skill development since we started three years ago pays off in team success. We owe it all to our volunteer coaches and technical staff in helping our players to succeed.”

Several other West Coast FC teams were in quarterfinal action last weekend as well including the U13 Metro Select, U15 Metro Select, U16 West Coast United and U17 West Coast Juventus boys teams.

All bowed out of the playoffs after stellar seasons.

On the girls side, the U14 Metro Select and U18 Metro Select teams both saw their great seasons come to an end with their quarterfinal losses.

There were some close losses.The U15 Metro Boys ended up losing 2-1 in overtime, and the U16 West Coast United were locked 1-1 with Coquitlam after regulation time.  They were still 1-1 after overtime and they were still knotted following the initial five shooters in the shoot-out phase.  It took another 3 shooters for both teams before Coquitlam was able to walk away winners 2-1.
