The Coastal U18 Boys BCSPL team handed a 6-1 crushing defeat to their arch rivals Mountain FC on June 24th, to become the 2018 Premier League Provincial Cup Champions. The boys were the only Coastal team represented at the finals that came home with the Cup.
Coaches Derrick Bassi and Eric Hacker made a few strategic changes to their roster at the beginning of the season, and with alot of hard work, determination and focus, the team ended up finishing in second place during the regular season. The coaches are very proud of their boys accomplishments and could not have imagined a better way to end their youth soccer careers before they all head off to play university soccer.
In addition to this victory, the boys have much more to be proud of. Here is a listing of where they are headed in the Fall:
Anthony Vega. University of Fraser Valley
Brandon Bassi. SFU
Harjot Nijjar, UVIC
Jackson Thomson. Trinity Western University
Jackson Turner. Trinity Western University
Kyle Gibson. University of Fraser Valley
Marcus Ference. University of Alberta
Mircea Gavrila. UBC Okanagan
Sidrit Vukaj. UBC Okanagan
Taiyo Marzalik. UBC
Duncam MacAdam. UVIC
Jason Longhia. Douglas College
The remaining players have not committed yet but are in discussions with several universities.
How exciting! We wish all of these boys and their coaches the best of luck in their future endeavours.
