Earl Marriott Secondary’s Grade 8/9 girls soccer team are champions of the Fraser Valley, after a 2-1 victory over Langley’s Brookswood Bobcats Thursday at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Marriott – which has a roster made up solely of Grade 8s while Brookswood field an all-Grade 9 squad – fell behind 1-0 early on a Brookswood first-half goal, but battled back just before halftime on a goal from Savanna Tsuruda, who was set up on a nice pass from teammate Lauren Hamilton.

In the second half, EMS sweeper Marie-Philippe LaRoche-Nadeau helped anchor the South Surrey school’s defence, which held the fort until Cali Burgin put Earl Marriott up 2-1 with just 15 minutes left in the game.

The victory for Earl Marriott capped an undefeated season for the Grade 8 girls.

In semifinals, which were held May 22, EMS defeated Delview 2-1, and in quarter-finals, beat Langley’s R.E. Mountain 3-0, with goals from Emily Dobson, Lauren Jennings and Georgia Cavannah.
