Provincial AA, AAA teams to meet for ultimate B.C. soccer prize

Colonist Cup a showdown between provincial champs, 7 p.m. Nov. 29 at UVic

Call it the Super Saanich Soccer Bowl, as two of the freshly crowned provincial champions are set to play in the Colonist Cup city final at UVic on Tuesday.

The AA champion Saint Michaels University Blue Jags will face the AAA champion Reynolds Roadrunners at UVic on Tuesday, 7 p.m. start.

The two Saanich clubs met twice this year, drawing both times, 1-1 and 3-3. Among the links are that both coaches are former UVic Vikes who won national championships, albeit J.J. Atterbury, of Reynolds, won it a few years earlier than freshman high school coach Cam Hundal, who won it with the Vikes in 2011.

“It makes it fun. I enjoyed watching Cam as a Vike but there’s not a rivalry between us, only between schools,” said Atterbury.

Atterbury, from Sooke, played for Gorge following a UVic career under coach Bruce Wilson.

Another piece of the puzzle: Soccer coach Evan Fryer, with Hundal at St. Mikes, is a Reynolds grad.

“It makes it fun,” Atterbury said.
