A pair of pressure-packed wins which needed extra time and penalty kicks, respectively, have qualified the Aldergrove Totems for the provincial championships.

The Totems senior boys’ AA soccer team came from behind to knock off the Samuel Robert Technical Titans 2-1 in overtime and then shocked the top seed Delview Raiders 1-0 in penalty kicks in the Fraser Valley semifinals on Nov. 1.

The Wildcats missed their first penalty kick while the Totems went a perfect 5-for-5.

Aldergrove, the fourth seed, plays the third seeded Archbishop Carney Stars this afternoon (Thursday) in Port Coquitlam.

Regardless of the outcome, both teams have qualified to play Nov. 21 to 23 in Burnaby at the B.C. championships.

The Totems went 6-1-1 to win the Langley league title before winning their first two playoff matches at the Fraser Valleys.

The Langley Saints (5-2-1) had also qualified for the Fraser Valley tournament, but lost their quarter-final match to the Abbotsford Traditional Titans 5-1.

And with the double knockout format, the Saints were eliminated after losing 3-0 to the Sands Scorpions.
