The Whitecaps and BCSA's newest affiliate, Surrey WFC, will be the first Northwest Division club to compete in United Soccer Leagues Super Y-League season when they travel to Spokane, Washington this weekend to face fellow first year club, the Spokane Spiders in an four-game set. The two clubs will meet in U13 and U14 competition in both the girls and boys divisions.
Spokane will also face Evergreen Soccer Club, a third new Super Y-League club in the division for the 2008 season. Those clubs will meet in the U13 and U14 age divisions with games between both the boys and girls.
Getting a jump on their longest road trip of the season, Surrey will transverse the 392 miles across Washington state and face the Spiders looking to achieve the same level of success that other WFC affiliates – Mountain WFC and Coastal WFC obtained by qualifying teams for the SYL North American Finals in their first season, last year.
Surrey’s U13 boys and U14 girls are scheduled to kickoff from Plantes Ferry Complex in Spokane at noon on Saturday, May 3. The club’s U13 girls and U14 boys will follow with matches at 2 PM PST.
Also traveling the length of the state, Evergreen Soccer Club will take on the Spiders the following day. The club’s U13 boys and U14 girls will get underway at 1 PM PST. The U14 boys and U13 girls will begin at 3 PM PST.
