The Pitt Meadows Marauders used a strong second half to come back and topple the SRT Titans 4-1 in senior boys’ AA soccer on Oct. 15.

Marauders head coach Michael Oldridge said his team played a much stronger game as time progressed and was especially pleased with forward Gerardo Gallegos.

The head coach said the striker did a great job setting up a pair of goals before finding the back of the net on a direct kick, bending the ball around the wall into the corner of the net to round out the scoring.

Oldridge also commended the strong defensive play of Michael Imai and Mac Rope.

SRT head coach Emad Agahi said he was pleased with how his team played considering it had no bench players due to illness and commitments to football.

“I’m very proud of out guys for hanging in there as long as they did,” said Agahi. “We we’re missing a lot of key guys.”

He said the game got away from SRT late as fatigue caught up with them.

Bela Piocza opened the scoring for the Titans in the first half, scoring his seventh goal of the year.

“It is remarkable what that boy has done for us this year,” said Agahi. “Most of his minutes, he’s asked to play an isolated forward position in which he is responsible for creating his own opportunities. I haven’t seen another player in this league do as much as he has for his team.”

• Thomas Haney relied on its strong bench and a suffocating defence to roll past Garabaldi 4-1 on Oct. 15.

Alejandro Pevez came off the bench late in the first half to give the Thunder the 1-0 lead and Jac Walker substituted in early in the second half to bury a pretty feed from Brandon Bodnarchuck to extend the lead to 2-0. After the Rebels cut the lead to 2-1, Freddy Boserup put the game away for the Thunder with two late goals.

Thunder assistant coach Paul Franco said his team dominated the game with time-of-possesion and strong work on the back end.

Franco added that his team’s defence is one of the best in the district.

“Ben Roberts, Lachlan Ramsay, Mitchel Thomsen and Nick Bartlett were solid in the back keeping Garabaldi super frustrated, unable to break through.”
