The Langley Fundamental Senior Titans came home with a bronze medal from the B.C. AA Senior Boys Soccer Championship.

This was the first ever appearance for Langley Fundamental Middle Senior Secondary at boys soccer championships and they finished third out of 16 teams.

An overtime loss of 3-4 versus Bodwell of North Vancouver on Tuesday eliminated the Titans from the gold and silver medal games, but they went on to take the bronze with a penalty kick, 1-0, victory over W.L. Seaton on Wednesday in Burnaby.

The gold medal winners were the St. Michaels University team, with a 2-1 victory over Bodwell.

The Titans had played their third game Tuesday morning in a hard fought battle against the Duchess Park Condors from Prince George and came away victorious 1-0.

The Titans also won both of their games Monday in Burnaby.

Langley Fundamental came out strong in their first game of the championships, defeating the Richmond Colts soundly, 5-1.

Next up saw the local Titans take on Carihi Tyees from Campbell River in the afternoon with a hard fought battle. In the end the Titans prevailed with a 1-0 win. Titans’ Brenden Verigin maintained his shutout in net.

Sixteen teams began this championship representing eight zones (Fraser Valley; Kootenays; North Central; North Shore, Burnaby-New Westminster; North West; Okanagan; Vancouver Island; and Vancouver/Richmond) of the province. One will be crowned the Provincial Champion on Wednesday.

Three of the four Fraser Valley zone finalists — Langley Fundamental, Archbishop Carney and Pitt Meadows — all placed within the top eight of this 16 team Provincial Championship. This great Fraser Valley representation speaks highly of our local soccer clubs.
