Aldergrove Youth Soccer teams are well placed in the standings across all age groups with at least two more games to play in round robin cup play.

Some teams have more games to be played due to field closures at other clubs. This is the time of year that Aldergrove athletes really appreciate the all weather facilities at Aldergrove Athletic Park.

Many games are played under the lights as the club tries to accommodate all ages, which means some of the older teams kick off as late as 6 p.m. on some weekends.

This past weekend fans saw exciting soccer with some games going to penalty kicks. The U17 girls as an example were tied in an energetic game and had to go to the penalty spot 10 times before they won.

Having not lost in the first half of the season, this has placed them in a higher division which has resulted in tougher competition and very close games. Their competitive level has been excellent with this new challenge.
