The 'Caps Girls Elite BC Super REX team took on a number of familiar faces on Friday, facing the newly founded TSS Rovers FC Women's WPSL squad at Surrey's Newton Athletic Park. The TSS roster features eight graduating 'Caps players (including Tanya Boychuk) and striker Jordyn Huitema, though the latter remained with the 'Caps for this match.
The football I saw tonight between the @TSSRoversWPSL and the @WFCElite was outstanding. Two full #CanWNT internationals, 8 u17s, and some u20s on both teams.— Chris (@salishsea86) May 26, 2018
It was intellengent, pacey and thoughtful football. A treat to watch such quality on display.
Nine 'Caps will be on their way to Florida next week for the continuation of the Concacaf U-17 Championship tournament, which was postponed following riots in Nicaragua in April. The rest of the tournament will take place June 6 to 12 in Bradenton, Florida, with Canada continuing Group B action against Costa Rica on June 6, and the United States on June 8.
