Surrey United best in Canada

Langley’s Katie Thorlakson struck for the game winner as Surrey United captured the Jubilee Trophy as the women’s soccer national championship with a 2-1 victory over Quebec’s Royal Select Beauport on Monday (Oct. 10)

The week-long competiton, which was played in Brossard, Que., required the B.C. representatives to play five games in six days.

Surrey United won pool B with a 3-1-0 record.

The team features a strong Langley contingent in Thorlakson, Natalie Halcro, Randee Hermus, April Coffin, Chelsey Hannesson, Kim McMullen and Aldergrove’s Bianca Wilkinson.

Surrey United, which is the eight-time defending provincial champions, last won the national title in 2006.
