Preston FC teams bring home the medals

Langley youth soccer teams manage three gold, one silver at Labour Day tournaments

It was quite the haul for various Preston GM Langley FC soccer squads.

Competing at the prestigious Starfire Labour Day tournament over the weekend in Seattle, three of the Langley-based club’s BC Soccer Premier League teams found the podium.

Two of the squads — both the U15 girls and the U15 boys — each won gold in their respective divisions, while a third, the U13 boys Gold team came home with silver.

The U15 girls team beat the FV Selects 03 squad 1-0 in the finals and the team went four games without either a loss or a goal conceded.

The U15 boys team also came home with the gold medal in their age group.

And the Langley U13 boys team lost 4-1 to BH Eclipse 2005 in the championship final.

Prior to that, the team had posted a 2-0-1 record to book a spot in the finals, by outscoring their foes a combined 17-2.

And competing at the SX International Cup in Richmond and Surrey, the Preston GM Langley FC Premier U16 girls team also won gold this past weekend. The squad won 1-0 over Surrey United SC 01 in the championship final.

The Langley team went 2-0-1 during round-robin play, conceding just one goal against in four matches.
