U-10 Bowen FC team ties for first in Surrey
The Bowen Island Football Club’s Under 10 team played in their first soccer tournament this weekend: the Surrey Mayor Cup.
The team won three of our four matches and tied one.
The end result of this is that the BIFC U10 team tied in first for that age division.
The team won their first match 6-1, tied the second game 1-1, won the third match 6-0, and the last match 5-0. On the first day of play, the team only had one sub, and on the second day they had no subs!
The first goal of the final match was scored by Arthur while playing seven versus eight, as the opposing team refused to wait for the eighth Bowen player to arrive.
All the U10 boys showed their strength and skill, and also showed great spirits in the pouring rain. The sportsmanship they displayed showed a team wise beyond its years. A fond farewell to Seth, the U10 team goalie who is moving to Prince George at the end of March.
Seth had a great year with only nine goals scored against U10 all season (76 goals scored for our team).
Seth was also appointed by his teammates as Man of the Tournament at the Surrey Mayor Cup.
Thank you to Oliver Zimmerman, U10’s coach. Your time and dedication is very appreciated by us all. The BIFC Under 11 team is now recruiting for the 2017/18 season.

Bowen Arrows win division at Surrey Mayor's Cup
This weekend, Bowen Island Football Club’s Under 9 team, the Bowen Arrows, won their division at their first real the Surrey Mayor’s Cup.
They played four games, tying one and winning the other three.
It was so fun watching these little people put all their skills and athleticism into play. Every member of the team has grown so much over the past two years.
They are all MVPs.
Special thanks to our coaches Deidre and Jill, who devote so much time and effort to the this team. You two are the true definition of coaches!
Honorable mentions to Ezra and Jack for playing up…and wow, you performed! And a special thanks to a great group of parents who gave up their weekend to stand in the rain in Surrey. Hayden, Makayla, Ela, Kaia, Addy, Saran…you were missed!
