Abbotsford Panthers advance to Fraser Valley finals

Senior boys soccer team defeats Terry Fox 1-0 on Tuesday

The Abbotsford Panthers senior boys soccer team will play for a Fraser Valley AAA championship tomorrow (Thursday).

After a dramatic shootout win on Nov. 1, the club traveled to Port Coquitlam’s Gates Park on Tuesday to take on the top team in the North Zone – the Terry Fox Ravens.

The teams played to a scoreless first half, but a Jeevan Sidhu scored off a Jehmrode Kahlon cross at around the 65th minute and that goal eventually held up to secure the Panthers a 1-0 win.

That victory advances the team to the Fraser Valley final against Surrey’s L.A. Matheson Mustangs on Thursday at 2 p.m. at the South Surrey Athletic Park.

The Mustangs went a perfect 9-0 during the regular season to finish atop the AAA’s East zone. Matheson outscored its opposition 61-4 in those games. They defeated Panorama Ridge 4-2 on Tuesday to advance to the Fraser Valley final.

Abbotsford finished the season 5-0, and have gone a perfect 3-0 in the Fraser Valley playoffs so far.

Regardless of Thursday’s result, the Panthers will head into provincials ranked at least second in the Fraser Valley.
