SURREY — Chilliwack’s Sardis Falcons may have dropped to No. 5 in the last set of provincial rankings, yet the team which sat at No. 1 for the majority of the season had a body of work that set it apart from the rest of the conference.
Coaches met Friday to seed the 16-team Fraser Valley senior girls AAA soccer championship draw which opens with the first first of four rounds this Monday, and the Falcons (6-0-1), the East champs, got the nod as the No. 1 seed.
South Delta (5-1-0) took the No. 2 seed and sits on the opposite side of the draw. The Sun Devils (5-1-0) won the South Division.
Surrey’s Fleetwood Park Dragons (5-1-0), last season’s B.C. finalist and the West champs, took the No. 3 seed, while PoCo’s Riverside Rapids (6-0-1), the North Division champs, got the No. 4 seed.
Monday’s game are scheduled for 3 p.m. starts. Higher seeds hosted through the first three rounds.
Round 2 takes place May 9. Round 3 on May 14 and the final round on May 19.
The final round of games will be staged at Cloverdale Athletic Park in advance of the provincial championships set for May 30-June 1 at UBC.
Last season, the Fraser Valley’s top seven teams advanced to the B.C. tournament.
