Second Cup triumph for senior men’s soccer side

The Abbotsford Magnuson Ford United men's soccer team picked up its second Cup win in seven days, beating the Port Moody Gunners 2-0.

The Abbotsford Magnuson Ford United men’s soccer team picked up its second Cup win in seven days, beating the Port Moody Gunners 2-0 in the Soccer City Fraser Valley League Cup final on Friday.

The previous Saturday, the local side had beaten the same Port Moody squad 3-0 in the Pakenham Cup final.

In the rematch, Abbotsford controlled the play during a scoreless first half, then surged ahead on a pair of second-half goals from game MVP Justin Sekhon.

Sekhon opened the scoring in the 67th minute, running onto a long pass from Sukh Dhaliwal and hammering a shot off the post and in. He made it 2-0 in the 81st minute, taking a feed from Colton O’Neill in the penalty area, maintaining his balance despite being fouled, and cracking a hard low shot past the Port Moody keeper.

With the Fraser Valley Premier Men’s League title now in their possession, the team embarks on the Provincial Cup playdowns.
