LANGLEY — If Chilliwack’s Sardis Falcons needed any extra motivation to improve on last season’s fourth-place finish at the B.C. AAA championships, perhaps they’ll use their finish to the 2018 regular season as motivation.
A dominant Fraser Valley East campaign (6-0-1, 41 goals score, two allowed) concluded this past week with a 1-1 draw against W.J. Mouat and a 1-0 win over R.E. Mountain. It was enough to move Sardis out of the No. 1 spot in the B.C. rankings.
North Vancouver’s Argyle Pipers, who lost on penalty kicks to the Falcons at the season-opening UBC Invitational, move into the top spot this week.
Richmond, Victoria and Delta schools also move up in the rankings.
As zone tournaments are set to begin, here’s a look at the latest provincial top 10:
