Six Peace Arch Soccer clubs win on Delta Cup weekend

The Delta Cup featured teams from the Delta Youth Soccer Association – Peace Arch, Ladner, North Delta and Tsawwassen.

A handful of local soccer teams emerged victorious from the Delta Cup, which was hosted by Peace Arch Soccer Club March 3 at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Even the rain held off.

“It wasn’t too bad at all,  just a little windy, that’s it. It was a good day,” Peace Arch Soccer Club president Brandt Watkins said.

The Delta Cup featured 28 teams – and more than 400 players – from throughout the Delta Youth Soccer Association – which includes Peace Arch, Ladner, North Delta and Tsawwassen.

In total, six squads from the host club finished first in their respective divisions: Peace Arch United (U11 Development, Group 2); Peace Arch Falcons (U11 House, Group 2); Peace Arch Galaxy (U11 House, Group 4); Peace Arch All-Stars (U12 House, Group 1); Peace Arch Dynamo (U13 House, Group 2); and Peace Arch Gunners (U13 House, Group 3).

In addition to the Delta Cup, which was for U11-U14 players, a windup for Peace Arch’s mini and micro divisions (U5-U10) was also held at the park.
