CMFSC Provincials 2023 Recap

Following a season characterized by dedication, and perseverance, a total of 16 CMFSC teams qualified to play this Spring in the Provincial Premier Cup, Provincial A Cup, and Provincial B Cup. We take immense pride in the performances of our Coquitlam Metro-Ford teams at these prestigious competitions. CMFSC Technical Director, Alfredo Valente,

“It’s always a great accomplishment to have teams compete in provincial cups and represent the club. We hope all players, coaches and parents had a positive experience and continue to use the event to learn and develop in a competitive competition.”

Provincial Premier Cup – Coquitlam, BC - June 10/11, 2023

The Provincial Premier Cup stands as the most esteemed Youth Provincial Cup in BC for players U13 - U18. This single knock-out format ran over three weekends with quarter-finals, semi-finals, and finals. We were so proud to see four CMFSC teams compete in the finals weekend.

  • 2010 Boys - Provincial Cup Champions
  • 2008 Girls - Provincial Cup Champions * Headed to Nationals
  • 2008 Boys - Provincial Cup Champions * Headed to Nationals
  • 2005 Girls - Provincial Cup Champions

We were thrilled to host the Premier Cup Finals at Town Centre Park. The atmosphere created by local supporters undoubtedly played a role in the success of all four of our qualifying BCSPL teams. The 2010 boys, 2008 girls, 2008 boys and 2005 girls all lifted the trophy as Provincial Cup Champions. With their wins, both the 2008 girls and 2008 boys will represent Coquitlam Metro-Ford and British Columbia at the Youth National Championships in Waterloo, Ontario this October.

The first game on Saturday morning featured our undefeated U13 boys against North Vancouver. The slick passing from the back right through to the front was rewarded as CMFSC cruised to a 3-0 victory. It was great to see this team rewarded for their outstanding years as eight boys will now be moving on to the Whitecaps Program.

The U15 boys’ game was a thrilling end to end battle between Fusion FC and CMFSC. The fast and physical encounter was tied at two when Koben Armer Petrie found Tyler Magdalinski with a through pass late in the game, the game’s most dangerous forward made no mistake slotting it past the goalkeeper. The winning goal and 3-2 victory means the team will travel to Waterloo in October.

Sunday started off with an encounter of the two top U15 girls’ teams in the province, CMFSC vs Mountain. Our undefeated girls started quickly with an early goal from Camryn Strain. Although Mountain would look dangerous at times they could never penetrate out defense. CMFSC would add goals from Camryn and Genevieve Murdocco to win by the 3-0 scoreline. This team will join our boys on the Thanksgiving weekend competing against some of the best teams in Canada at club nationals.

Finally, the afternoon match up had the two rivals from CMFSC and Surrey United squaring off in the U18 girls’ final. Our possession game would gradually lead to more opportunities in this tactical battle as the girls defeated Surrey by a score of 3-2. It’s fantastic to see this team cap off their youth careers with a provincial title as they have represented CMFSC so well for many years.

Head of Girls BCSPL, Esteban Mora, "It was a great weekend for our club. The support and atmosphere was amazing. It was great to see the 2008 girls lift another provincial title and I look forward to watching them play at nationals. I am also glad the 2005 girls won in their final year and have been enjoying watching them play at the university level.”

Provincial A Cup - South Surrey Athletic Park - June 29th - July 2nd, 2023

After a long season of battling in league play in the BC Coastal Soccer League and top showings in the Coastal Cup, six CMFSC teams qualified for the Provincial A Cup. 

  • U13G Blazers – Gold Medal & Sportsmanship Award
  • U13B PSG – Silver Medal
  • U16G Revolution – Silver Medal
  • U16B Inter – Bronze Medal
  • U17B Atletico – Silver Medal
  • U18G Shockwave – 5th place

Teams played three round robin games to determine placement in final matches against the top teams in British Columbia. Sunday’s gold medal match saw the CMFSC Blazers facing North Vancouver on a scorching hot day. It was an exciting and intense back and forth game between the teams. The Blazers put in a tireless team effort, and their defence held a strong solid line. Mikayla Mazzuca scored a hat trick to help lead her team to a 3-2 victory and Provincial Cup Championship title.

Congratulations to all of our teams as they battled all season and had a great showing in Provincials. 

Girls Provincial B Cup - Kamloops - July 6th - July 9th, 2023

Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial Cup - Langley - July 13th - July 16th, 2023

Two of our Division 1 and Division 2 boys teams travelled to Langley to compete in the Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial B Cup tournament against the top teams from all over British Columbia which included Kamloops, Nelson, Kelowna, and Prince George.

Liam Carter, Head Coach of Boys, attended the tournaments and had this to say, "In July we were very fortunate to have a wonderful showing of CMF talent in both our Provincial A and B cups. All our teams represented CMF tremendously, both on and off the field. It was fantastic to see our fabulous parent groups out in full force, cheering on their superstars in what was a great final weekend of play. Congrats to all players and their tireless coaches who put in so much extra to make these moments that much more memorable.”
