Eight winners of Coastal Cup final
The Delta Coastal Selects claimed the U13 Girls A Coastal Cup last month, blanking the Port Coquitlam Castilians 2-0 in the final.
The Selects didn’t concede a goal in the Coastal Cup tournament, winning three games by a 6-0 aggregate. They were one of eight local teams to win a Coastal Cup final.
All Coastal Cup finalists have qualified for provincial championships in July.
“This club dug down deep all season and played with determination and consistency. Their focus and perseverance was amazing,” said head coach Gordon McGahey.
The Coastal Cup finals in 22 age groups and categories were played April 26-27 in Richmond.
