Langley soccer squad playing for championship

A strong start and the game's opening goal helped propel a local youth soccer team to the championship final.

The Langley United Youth Soccer Association U14 Silver boys squad knocked off the Prospect Lake Lakers 3-1 in the Coastal B Cup semifinals in Victoria.

The championship final is May 5 in Richmond.

Against the Lakers, Langley had complete control in the game's opening 20 minutes and were rewarded when Reece Mostat scored off a scramble in front of the goal.

The Lakers came out strong in the second half, pushing for the equalizer, but Langley held strong and countered with a goal for the 2-0 lead.

Off a Josh Smallwood corner kick, Trevor Miller headed the ball cleanly into the top corner.

Prospect Lake finally got on the board, connecting on a penalty kick.

But Langley sealed the victory off another Smallwood corner kick, with this time Zach Pilch heading home the ball.

In addition to playing in the Coastal Cup championship, Langley has earned a spot in the Provincial C Cup tournament this July in August.
