Cascades at nationals

University of the Fraser Valley

Chilliwack’s Logan McKeown and Nick Haywood are two of nine members of the University of the Fraser Valley men’s soccer team currently playing in the CSA U-18 National Championships

Cascades coach Alan Errington and his crew are representing British Columbia at the tournament in New Brunswick. The Magnuson Ford Abbotsford Mariners won the B.C. Soccer Association U-18 title and the right to represent this province at finals back in August.

The team is in a round robin pool with New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba and Quebec.   The winner of the pool plays in the championship match on Monday.

The other seven Cascades are Matt Kidwell, Sahib Phagura, Colton O’Neill, Trent Mayer, Connor O’Neill, Daniel Molendijk and Jorden Leib.

“This is a great experience for our first year players,” said Errington.  “As they learn the CIS game they are getting valuable tournament play at the CSA Nationals.”

The UFV men have one win and one tie in eight games this season.
