Better Late Than Never...B Cups complete 2019 Adult Finals

Wind wreaked havoc on both the Men's and Women's B-Cups on the road to this year's Adult Finals.

May 28th, 2019 - Vancouver BC

When a damaging windstorm swept southern BC on the morning of April 27th, the chain of events including Ferry cancellations would impact two Adult Provincial finals.

Last weekend, both the Men's Provincial B-Cup and Leeta Sokalski Women's B Cups were finally played, and two Provincial Champions were crowned for the very first time.

 
 

Saturday's women's final at Layritz Park in Saanich saw Surrey Kerrisdale defeat Gorge on the strength of a Jasmin Dhanda goal. 

Sunday's Men's Final featured Metropolitan top Serbia FC 3-0 at Burnaby Lake.  Masumi Turnbull and Thomas Solano gave the eventual winners a 2-0 half time advantage, before Edson Castro sealed the win for the "Students".

Congratulations to all the finalists, and a special thanks to all those who supported the finals in person.
