The Port Moody Selects took home the Provincial A Cup Soccer Championship banner last weekend after shutting out Burnaby in the under-15 gold medal match.
On their way to the finals, the club tied Coastal Cup champions the Burnaby Selects before defeating the Kamloops Blaze 6-0. Another 5-2 win over the Bays United/Peninsula team set the stage for a championship match against Burnaby.
In the first half, Port Moody’s Ethan Gaddu managed to knock in a loose ball from a corner kick to give his team an early lead. Burnaby kept up the pressure in search of the equalizer but could not find a way to get past the Selects’ strong defence and solid goaltending.
Port Moody’s Ethan Turner added an insurance marker on a one-time shot from 22-yards out, the victory was sealed for the Tri-City club.
Now, the team is expected to head to Europe to train and compete against a handful of European Academy teams.
