The Port Moody Gunners have punched their ticket to the under-21 Fraser Valley Soccer League championships after a 1-0 win over the Port Moody Reds.
The two teams will meet up next weekend on Port Moody’s Trasolini Field to duke it out for regional supremacy, after a season that saw the Gunners finish first and the Reds second.
Last week’s game was a low-scoring, defensive affair.
Despite a strong start from both sides, neither club was able to find the go-ahead goal. Finally, in the second half, one of the Gunners were able to net a single for a 1-0 the team held onto until the whistle.
The championship match between the two Port Moody clubs will take place at 7:15 on April 3 and cap a day of soccer games at Port Moody between clubs from across the region.
At 9:45 a.m. the same day, the Bradner Redshirts will take on the Langley FC Sentinels in the Bradner finals, while Coastal FC will take on Temple United at Heritage Woods at noon in the Bradner Masters finals.
That game is followed by matches between the Coastal FC United and Langley Dynamo (TBA) in the Bradner Open, the Fraser Valley Red Devils and Westcoast FC United (12:15 p.m.) in the Presidents Cup and a Masters Cup game between Coastal FC Peace Arch and the North Delta SC Rangers. At 5 p.m. Langley United and Abbotsford United will compete in the Pakenham Cup.
In A Division, the Port Moody Gunners lost 3-1 to Abbotsford, while the Port Moody Rangers FC fell 3-0 to the Westcoast FC Selects.
In other Fraser Valley Soccer League action, the Port Coquitlam FC Rangers are expected to take on the North Delta SC Royals this weekend in a playoff game.
