The U17 Aldergrove Vipers celebrated a victory against rival team Langley United after they battled for first place in the District Cup, Saturday, Feb. 23 in Aldergrove.

Langley led the game 1-0 going into the second half only to have that taken away from them when Aldergrove forward Gurgot Grewal brought the ball into Langley's box, where the ball bounced off a defender and Nick Hall scored to tie the game.

No further goals were scored in regulation overtime time, thanks to the outstanding goal-tending by Aldergrove's Kyle Sagert and the hard work by the rest of the team.

It then came down to a shoot-out and it took eight shooters to decide the outcome. Aldergrove's Jessie Gill shot a goal to give Aldergrove the win.

The team now moves forward to the Coastal Cup in April.


Aldergrove’s U-17 Vipers Boys’ Soccer team won the Fraser Valley District Finals Cup with a 2-1 victory over Langley United at Aldergrove Athletic Park, Saturday, Feb. 23.
