Parklands’ senior boys soccer team finished their season on a positive note Tuesday afternoon, scoring a 4-1 win in Sidney over Vic High.

Both teams finished the AA tier two boys soccer season well behind the league-leaders. The win gives Parkland a final record of two wins and three losses. Vic High ends with one win, two losses and two ties.

Parkland carried the play for much of the match. The Sidney school’s Brazillian forwards — Pedro Bardora, Daniel Da Silva and Matheus Soares — kept the pressure on Vic High and accounted for all four of Parkland’s scoring, Bardora tallying twice.

Coach Bryan Sutton said this was their final game, after he had to cancel another match due to the unavailability of his international players next week.

“This year there were the two different tiers,” he said, “and that was good for us.”

Due to their record, the team did not make the playoffs, Sutton said, adding there is room to grow for his young team.

Made up of Grade 11 and 12 players, the senior boys squad also brought in Grade nine and 10 students, as there was no junior program this year. Sutton, who has been coaching for more than 10 years, said there hasn’t been a junior boys team for the last three years, making building up the talent pool more difficult.

As of Oct. 11, St. Andrews led the tier two standings, followed by Esquimalt.

In tier one, Stelly’s tops the division with 15 points (5-0-1), followed by Glenlyon Norfolk and Claremont. The AAA Island playoffs are Nov. 5 and 6 with Victoria and Stelly’s hosting.
