In the women’s provincial A Cup bracket, the powerful Gorge side were stunned by Westside FC in the quaterfinals. The Vancouver team beat Gorge 3-1 at Hampton Park on Sunday (May 1).

Prospect Lake, however, will advance having defeated Vic West 4-2 in their quarterfinal match at Layritz turf on April 17.

Prospect will face Surrey Utd. Premier in a semifinal at Layritz Park, 12:30 p.m. Sunday (May 8). The other A Cup semifinal sees Westside face the North Shore Renegades. Finals are May 14 or 15.

Gordon Head, Vic West advance

Lower Island women’s teams Vic West and Gordon Head Blue are in this weekend’s B Cup semifinals. Vic West bettered the Richmond Red Devils 4-0 at UVic on Monday (May 2).

The time and place for Gordon Head Blue’s match against the Surrey Ajax Selects was yet to be announced as of the News’ press deadline.

U21 Highlander boys in semis

The Victoria Highlanders defeated Surrey Pegasus 1-0 at Bear Mountain Stadium on April 30 to advance to the Doug Day U21 boys provincial semifinals. Wickham FC (Vancouver) will visit the Highlanders at Layritz, 2 p.m. Saturday (May 7). Port Moody Gunners and Coquitlam Jr. Wolves are in the other semifinal on May 8.

Gorge girls in classics final

The Gorge FC organization will have one team in the provincial finals as the over-35 women’s side will face the Semiahmoo Supra for the classics B.C. championship on May 14 or 15. Venue yet to be announced.
