BCSPL Girls Provincial Finals 2023

BC Girls Provincial Finals took place on Sunday, June 25th at Coquitlam Town Centre Park, with representation from Mountain United FC (Burnaby FC), Langley United SA, Coquitlam Metro-Ford SC and Vancouver Island Wave at the U15, U16 and U17 age group. 

U15/2008 Finals: Mountain United FC vs Metro-Ford SC 

The first game we were able to scout at The Playbook was 2008 Born (U15 age group) where Coquitlam Metro-Ford SC took on Mountain United FC. These two teams were a joy to watch, both uniquely superb in different facets of the game. MUFC were the better team in possession and playing out of the back through their intelligent ball playing CBs of #16 Delaney Haibeck and #10 Chloe Taylor . They controlled the game through #6 CM Julie Dirom and #4 CM Adri Giese but could not capitalize on their chances. A lot of the attempts on goal were made from outside the box or at the keeper, not really forcing her to make too many big saves. Credit to Metro-Ford who showed remarkable defending in and around the box through #3 Ava Burdeyny and #16 Avery Dodd. MUFC conceded because of an error playing out of the back, through a great finish off an unfavourable touch. Metro-Ford looked dangerous down the right side with the pace of #5 RB Simona Mascitti, #8 WGR Lacey Kindel and their central target ST #11 Camryn Strain. Final score ended  Metro-Ford 3 – MUFC 0.

U16/2007 Finals: Langley United vs Mountain United FC

The second game we were able to scout at The Playbook was 2007 Born (U16 age group) where Langley United SA took on Mountain United FC. Mountain United FC showed their dominance on the ball building out from the back. Both CBs #4 Laila Gul and #2 Jamie Doest did well to break lines of pressure. This game started off as a chess match, both teams feeling each other out resulting in a stalemate 0-0 at half time. Both teams had chances, including a phenomenal strike from distance from #6 on MUFC Miah Jones, but LUSA looked the more dangerous on the counter. The combination of Jade Mitchell’s burst of pace, Maycen Slater’s runs in behind and Quinn Johnson’s passing range and threatening striking ability was too much to handle. Along with some stunning saves by the LUSA GK, all of these players played a significant part in leaning the game in LUSA’s favour. LUSA worked hard, played with grit and won themselves a hard fought victory. Final Score LUSA 4 – 1 MUFC 

U17/2006 Finals: Mountain United FC vs Vi Wave FC 

The final game we were able to scout at The Playbook was 2006 Born (U17 age group) where MUFC faced off against VI Wave. VI Wave battled out a PK shootout in the semi-finals to defeat BCSPL leader and #5 Nationally Ranked Fusion FC to make it to the Provincial Finals. VI Wave worked hard to compete with the top notch MUFC side, but they lacked the end product in the final third. MUFC dominated on the ball, created plenty of chances and showed threat in multiple areas. They were able to find chances from both wide areas and throughout the spine of the VI Wave back line. The GK and UBC commit for VI Wave, Emma Sparrow made some incredible saves to keep the game level for as long as she could. But MUFC had too much firepower in the likes of Sierra Bergen, Katie Connell and Brinley Bjornson. Final Score MUFC 3 –  VI Wave 0.
