Storm topple Kodiaks

Credo Christian finishes second at Fraser Valley senior boys 1A soccer championships

The Credo Christian Kodiaks could not weather the Storm, allowing a pair of second-half goals in the Fraser Valley championship game.

The Kodiaks were playing the Southridge Storm last week (Oct. 27) at Aldergrove Athletic Park in the senior boys 1A championship game.

Credo, the top seed, had gone ahead in the 20th minute on an own-goal, but the Storm scored twice off of free kicks to prevail 2-1.

“They were pressing pretty hard — (Southridge) played quite well — and they ended up getting two goals from free kicks,” said Credo coach Tom VanderHorst.

“I wasn’t too disappointed — we were missing two of our (top) guys — the guys played hard but it didn’t work out.”

The Kodiaks finished first during league play with a record of 4-1-0, scoring 18 goals and conceding just three.

They also won a pre-season tournament in Duncan.

They played the Storm once during league play, prevailing 1-0.

In the semifinals last week (Oct. 25), Credo defeated the Unity Christian Flames 1-0.

“We would have liked it to have ended differently; we had a goal to win it,” VanderHorst said.

“We thought we would after winning the (regular) season but the circumstances we were in, we will take this.”

The Kodiaks have qualified for the next week’s provincial championships, which are being hosted by Southridge in Surrey Nov. 7 to 9.

Credo Christian is looking to build on last year’s bronze medal they won at the B.C. championships.

Seven players are back from that squad and the team has been waiting for this opportunity all season, the coach explained.

“Coming very close last year, we lost a heartbreaker in the semifinals, gave us a hunger for this year,” he said.

“Everything in the season was just gearing up for provincials.”

“We definitely came away hungry (from last year).”
