WC U18 girls make league quarters

Eleven local teams move on to quarter final action this weekend.

The West Coast Auto Group Football Club U18 Metro select girls’ advanced to the league quarter-finals after a dramatic overtime shootout win over Coquitlam 1-0 last weekend.

The U18 Metro select girls team joins a record number from WCAGFC that made the playoffs and is just one 11 to have advanced to the quarter-finals.

“This has been one of the best seasons ever for our soccer club, both on and off the pitch,” said Dan Mikolay, president of WCAGFC. “On the pitch, our technical team and more than 200 volunteer parent coaches have done an amazing job. From the advancements in skill development within our youngest players through to the playoff success of our competitive teams, it has been a historic season.”

He said the club is also experiencing incredible growth in its programs.

Mikolay said the WCAGFC spring programs have grown another 300 to 400 players this season, approaching 1,500 participants in total.

“Those numbers are starting to rival the over 3,000 players who participate in the fall/winter programs,” he said.

All quarter-final matches take place this weekend. West Coast will host three matches on Saturday.

The U16 boys get the ball rolling against Coquitlam Metro Ford Apollo at Westview secondary at 2:20 p.m., followed by the U17 boys taking on the North Vancouver Fury at 4:30 p.m.

The men’s division premier team rounds out the day with a 6 p.m. start time against Langley Hurricanes at Pitt Meadows secondary.
