THE TYPHOONS ARE enjoying a strong season on the soccer pitch.

Typhoons win their division at Surrey Mayor’s Cup

U13 girls select soccer team enjoying an outstanding season

Hard work and dedication pays off!

The U13 Typhoons select soccer team has just returned to the Valley after winning their division at the Surrey Mayor’s Cup. The team started strong with a convincing 4-0 win with MVP game honours going to Anna Erikson. The Typhoons then played to a 0-0 draw after regulation time before winning in a shoot-out. An excellent game in net earned Grace Patterson-Grunberg game MVP.

Their third game again was a close battle ending scoreless with the Typhoons coming out with the win after a successful shoot-out. Again the Typhoons goalkeeper, Avery Dennis, played a key role in the win and was awarded MVP. This set up the final game between the two undefeated teams Sunday afternoon on the turf field at the B.C. Lions’ practice facility.

The Kamloops Blaze seemed to control a good part of the first half having the wind at their backs, but were unable to capitalize. The Typhoons were tenatious to start the second half and created a huge momentum shift. A great Typhoon strike netted all they needed to come away with a 1-0 victory. Strong play by Breanna Patterson earned her game MVP.

The Typhoons finished the tournament with a perfect 4-0 record with no goals against, with team tournament MVP going to Emily Haughton. The Typhoons now have their sights set on the Saanich Fusion Tournament in mid April.
