BGSC Team Names

Burnaby Girls Soccer Club Team Names

Coaches, due to the large number of teams in our club please choose a name that is NOT used in the same age group. Ideally please try to avoid a name used by any other BGSC team.

Once you choose your team name, please advise the Club Manager so this list can be updated.

A single name is preferable to longer names such as "Striking Superstars" to make league schedules more clear.
Also younger teams should take under consideration how this name will work when the girls are 4 or 5 years older as many teams choose to keep names for a number of seasons.
"Pink Princesses" is very cute at U6 but doesn't seem to be as relevant by U12 or U13.

When deciding on a team name, please refrain from using "Burnaby" / BGSC. It adds to the length of the name and is not needed.

BGSC U11 Select 2000 Win Thanksgiving Tournament!


The U11 Select 2000s had an impressive and successful tournament debut this past weekend at the Coquitlam Metro Ford-hosted Thanksgiving Tournament, which was open to Select U11 and U12 teams only. 

After being seeded first in their bracket, the girls' fortunes took a bit of a turn when they lost 1-0 to another pre-tournament favourite, the Surrey United Tornados.  The girls carried most of the play in the game but were unable to find their finish around their opponent's net. 
 
Next up was their club co-Select team, the BGSC United.  After a hard-fought first half, which finished nil-nil, the 2000s managed to find their scoring touch in the second, finishing ahead 4-0 at full time. 
 
The final round-robin game was against the spumescent Kerrisdale Cappucinos, who were in tough against the possession-style approach of their opponents, and the final score was 3-1 for Burnaby.

Finishing second in Bracket B meant crossing-over to play the semi-final against the host Bombers, who had finished first in Bracket A











The game had perhaps extra significance since these two North District teams are likely to meet several times over the course of the regular season and, as many have speculated, are the pre-season picks to meet in the District Cup Final.  It was not Coquitlam's day however, as they lost their bid to reach the finals.


 
Burnaby played a relentless passing game that kept the Bombers at bay for most of the game.  The final score was 2-0 on goals by Emma Regan and Gigi Janes, as the Select 2000s advanced to the finals hoping to avenge their loss to the Surrey United Tornados, who had beaten the game Port Moody Stingers in the other semi-final.     
 
Surrey turned the tables on Burnaby and played a strong first half, emerging with a 1-0 lead, scoring seconds before the end of the first half.   The Tornados kept the pressure on to start the second half and quickly went up 2-0.  After settling his troops and encouraging them to "play their game", Carlos Grosso's squad finally got rolling and started creating chances. About half-way through the second half, Emma Regan scored on a free kick to cut the lead in half. 









After that, the Burnaby team kept pressing until, with time expiring, Julia Grosso scored the equalizer on a terrific shot from the top of the goalie's box. The game would be decided on penalty kicks.

Olivia Austin, Burnaby's keeper, made two great saves to keep the Tornados to a single goal in their first five shots.  The Select 2000s, unfortunately, were unable to capitalize, scoring only once themselves. 
 

So it all came down to sudden death PKs.  Burnaby shot first....and Janika Sangha's low shot streaked into the corner of the net!  The spotlight fell on Olivia who could taste victory.  The shot from the penalty spot was a good one, low and toward the corner.  But Olivia was up to the task and dove across her net, stretching to make yet another spectacular save!  Champions! 
 
After a well-fought, exciting game, the BGSC Select 2000 left with medals around their necks and with pride replacing the aches and pains of a long but successful tournament.  Congratulations girls!
