Rovers race on

TSS Rovers FC faced both Burnaby FC and Altitude FC in Matchweek 11 in the Men’s and Women’s Divisions, and accumulated 10 points from a potential 12.

The men’s team continue to lead the way in the standings after edging past rock-bottom Burnaby by 2-1 on Friday, before scraping a 1-0 win against title rivals Altitude on Sunday. Massud Habibullah scored all off TSS’ goals in a clutch week from the forward.

Rovers’ women’s team remain fourth in their standings following Friday’s 2-2 tie at home to Burnaby – Kaitlan Cerney stealing a point for TSS after Shanya Dhindsa thought she may have won it for the visitors in the 82nd minute – and Sunday’s 4-2 victory at Altitude which confirmed Rovers’ their playoff spot at their opponents’ expense.

Whitecaps win women’s regular season

It was a memorable weekend for the Whitecaps FC Girls Elite academy as they went into their game against Harbourside FC having guaranteed top spot in the Women’s Division regular-season standings and their place at the League1 Canada Women’s Inter-Provincial Championship this August.

They had an enjoyable day at the office with a 3-1 win over Harbourside – Mia Guterres’ brace proving the difference as Whitecaps secured their ninth win of the season and handed their opponents a seventh defeat.

It was a different story in the Men’s Division as, for only the second time this season, Whitecaps Academy’s men’s team were on the wrong side of the scoreline as they went down 2-1 at home to Harbourside thanks to Charlie Purcell’s late goal. Harbourside now occupy fourth in the standings.

Rivers make a splash

Rivers FC’s men’s game against Unity FC saw them pick up a precious 3-2 win thanks to Domenico Comita’s dramatic injury-time winner, as the Kamloops team’s points tally for the season moved into double figures.

But the three points went the other way in the Women’s Division; Unity climbed to second in the standings after a 2-0 success at Rivers, who remain one place and point above rock-bottom Harbourside. Mansha Sidhu’s strike in injury-time wrapped up the win after Jenaya Robertson’s opener.

It was a key win in Unity’s bid for a Women’s Division playoff semifinal at home, as they now share the same record as rivals Burnaby. Unity still also have an outside chance at making the Men’s Division postseason.
