Sardis Falcons advance to B.C. senior boys’ soccer provincials

The Falcons took down Princess Margaret secondary school, qualifying for the year end tourney.

Nathan Olson (in green) and his Sardis Falcons are off to provincials after dispatching Surrey’s Princess Margaret Lions by a 2-1 count at Sardis secondary school Tuesday afternoon.

Olson and Lachlan Gilchrist-Blackwood scored the goals as Sardis finished off their Fraser Valley adventure with a 3-1 record.

Their march to provincials started out shaky, with a 2-1 loss to Surrey’s Enver Creek Cougars last week.

That left Sardis in win-or-gome-home mode, with one stumble enough to eliminate them in the double-knockout format. Win out they did with a 6-2 victory over Langley last Thursday followed by a 4-1 win over Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox on Monday and Tuesday’s triumph over Princess Margaret.

The Falcons will now prep for the year-end tournament which takes place Nov. 23-25 in Burnaby.
