Two TOFC teams on to finals

Thompson Okanagan boys squads advance the B.C. Soccer Premier League championships

Two teams from the Thompson Okanagan Football Club will compete this coming weekend for B.C. Soccer Premier League titles.

TOFC’s U17 boys advanced with a 2-1 victory over national champion Surrey United last weekend on penalty kicks.

TOFC will be in Burnaby Saturday for the title game against the winner off this week’s other semifinal between Coquitlam Metro Ford SC and Fusion SC of Richmond/Vancouver.

TOFC’s U14 Boys had a similar storyline, with a 3-2 victory over Surrey United, also in penalty kicks after overtime solved nothing.

Isaac Boehmer of Okanagan Falls, the U14’s keeper,  saved three spot kicks to ensure the win and a berth in the final Saturday in Burnaby.

The girls side was less fortunate with three TOFC teams losing playoff matches.

The U13 girls lost a quarterfinal match up with Coastal FC 3-1 at UBCO’s Nonis Field.

The U14 girls lost their semifinal match 4-1 to Mountain United FC.

The U15 girls dropped a 3-0 decision to Coquitlam in their semi final.
