The North Fraser Selects U13 team is heading into the semi-finals of the B.C. Coastal Cup this weekend, with the help of three Mission players.

Raphael Soares, Ethan Symons and Steven Perry have been part of the team’s winning ways this year as they dominated in league play and won a couple of tournaments, said coach Jason Symons.

The Coastal Cup has determined the youth soccer cup champion for the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island since 1953, and teams reaching the finals win berths in the provincials.

This Saturday’s game against the Surrey Ravens in Surrey will determine if North Fraser can continue on in the competition, but Symons is confident in his players given they defeated the same team in a league game earlier this year.
