Whitecaps Prospects – PCSL - Pacific Coast Soccer League
With a condensed schedule of matches, coaches Bart Choufour (men) and Jesse Symons (women) have had a busy start to the season. Playing powerhouse PCSL teams such as Surrey United and Victoria United, the young Men's Prospects squad struggled out of the gates before finally getting their first win against Khalsa Sporting Club 2-1 followed by a recent 2-2 draw with Peace Arch United. The Men are back in action this Sunday when they host PSSA Rapids at 12:30pm at SFU's Fox Field.
After an opening season loss to division leaders Victoria Stars, the young Prospects Women have rattled off six straight wins to hold down second spot in the division. The women have still yet to face other top half teams such as Fraser Valley Action and familiar foes in the Tri-Cities Xtreme. The Prospects face Surrey United on Thursday at 7:30pm at SFU

With Northwest division play in full swing, notable mention goes to the undefeated Coastal U-16 Girls sitting in first place with a 3-0-0 record followed closely by Mountain's U-15 Girls with a 2-1-0 record. The exact same scenario exists in the U-15 Girls division, with Coastal and Mountain holding the first and second place spots in the league respectively.

The first-year Surrey WFC U-14 Boys sit in third spot with a very positive 3-1-2 record. In the U-16 Boys group, Mountain is 3-0-1 and in first spot.
With Surrey WFC having last weekend off and all four teams losing close matches against strong Abbotsford opposition on June 1, the club looks to bounce back when their U-13 and U-14 Boys host the Spokane Spiders on June 14 at 10:00 and 12:00 at Tom Binnie Field in Surrey.
Coastal WFC wrapped up a very intense two weeks with return leg fixtures against the powerhouse Washington Crossfire teams, which gave a clear indication that any qualification spots for the Super Y-League North American Championships in Florida are usually done through Crossfire. Coastal is in action again this weekend, as they travel to take on the Abbotsford Mariners on Saturday at Bateman Park, with the U-13 Boys and U-14 Girls facing off at 10:00, and the U-14 Boys and U-15 Girls playing at 5pm. On Sunday, Coastal will host West Coast Capitals at Mackie Park Sands North in Delta, with the U-14 Girls playing at 11:00am and the U-15 and U-16 Girls taking the field at 1:30pm.
Mountain WFC is fresh off a hectic weekend hosting the Washington Crossfire and Abbotsford Mariners in a combined 16 matches played over two days. In the return match this Sunday, Mountain heads to Abbotsford where all eight teams do battle at Bateman Park. Matches include the U-13 Boys and Girls 10:00, the U-14 Boys and Girls 12:00, the U-15 Boys and Girls 2:30 and the U-16 Boys and Girls at 5:00pm.
