Marauders bounced from playoffs

Senior boys' exit Fraser Valleys after steady stream of goal posts cost team chance to move on

Marauders’ Jonas Koellmel battles with a Langley Saints defender in playoff action at Pitt Meadows secondary on Nov. 5.

A little too much iron in the diet cost the Pitt Meadows Marauders their season.

The Marauders senior AA season came to an end after dropping a 2-1 decision on penalties to the Langley Saints on Nov. 5.

The Marauders trailed 1-0 after the first half and dominated play in the second, said head coach Mike Oldridge.

Despite controlling the tempo, the goal posts and crossbar kept the Marauders off the scoresheet.

“We hit five posts throughout the game,” said Oldridge. “I thought we outplayed Langley in the second half and extra time. Unfortunately, that ended our season.”

The Marauders trailed late in the game when Nate Trampleasure finally found the back of the net, tying it 1-1 with 10 minutes remaining.

With nothing settled in overtime the teams went to penalty kicks, where the marauders fell 5-4.

The Marauders finished the season with four wins and two ties to take first place in north division standings, two points up on the Arch Bishop Carney Stars.

They dropped the first game of the double knockout Fraser Valley playoffs 2-1 to Aldergrove on Oct. 3.
