A pair of Kelowna United teams started the soccer season on the right foot last weekend at the Surrey Mayors Cup tournament.

The U17/18 boys and the U14 Chaos girls teams both battled their way to gold medals under sunny weather and ideal field conditions.

The United boys won all four of their games, capping the title with a 1-0 win in penalty kicks over the Central City Breakers Tigers squad.

Kealan Cangiano and Morgan Gonzales fired precision shots into the back of the net followed by the stellar play of KU Keeper Corey Bennett, sealing the victory for Kelowna.

MVP of the games were Corey Bennett, Morgan Gonzales and Hakeem Rockwell.

In the U14 girls’ division, the Chaos was one of 28 teams competing in five pools.

In the first two games of the points-based tourney, Kelowna earned the maximum number of points.

In the third game of the tournament, with top spot on the line against undefeated Coastal FC, Chaos posted a third shutout to all but guarantee a gold medal.

In their final game, with a fourth consecutive shutout, Kelowna clinched gold at the Surrey tournament for the second straight year.
