Two Rino’s Squads Set for Provincial Cup Kickoff This Sunday

Rino’s U-21 team have known for months that they would have a spot in this year’s BC Soccer Provincial Cup tournament. The early acknowledgment came as a result of a diminished FVSL division which fielded only 4 teams for the 2012/13 season, opening up extra spots for the competitive VMSL teams. Meanwhile, the VMSL Div 2 Rino’s Fury find themselves in a totally contrasting situation. Having feasted upon a little too much Christmas Turkey, the team posted a poor 1-2 record in January and slipped from the top of the table into a 3-way tie for second, missing out on promotion to Division 1. That poor league form was followed up by a first round cup exit, and the boys were waxing their skis/snowboards ready to hit the slopes for what was left of the winter.

Those plans changed abruptly when the league informed Rino’s that they were to contest a single match playoff against arch-nemesis Dasmesh FC for a spot in the Keith Millar Provincial B Cup. The playoff was deemed necessary due to irregularities found in the transfer market by Gastown FC, who were summarily barred from Provincial competition. The case has now been forwarded to FIFA to see if a transfer ban will be imposed on them during the summer window.

The playoff match was held at Andy Livingstone on Saturday March 16 and young veteran, Vincent Martin, turned back the clock with a lively performance that saw him pop up in the right spot to net 2 goals in a 2-1 victory over Dasmesh. The BCSA Senior Mens Provincial Cup Draw was then held on April 2 in Victoria, and saw both Rino’s squad draw familiar VMSL opposition. The Fury were drawn against Sarajevo FC, who they’ve met many times in seasons past. Meanwhile the U-21’s drew Estrella de Chile, with whom they split the season series with one win apiece.

The matches will take place on Sunday April 14 at Andy Livingstone. The U-21’s kickoff at 12:30pm, followed by the Fury at 3:00pm. Both teams are hoping for a solid turnout from the home supporters.

Rino’s Fury 2012/13 Season Re-cap

The Rino’s Fury ended their season on Saturday in a 0-1 Cup loss to the Richmond Olympics. This normally would of sent them off to the golf courses with their usual long cup runs going well into March, but it seems they will be sent to the slopes with the ski season still in full flight.

It was a lackluster end to a year full of promise. Pundits predicting a successful promotion campaign, put pressure on the Rino’s Fury to live up to this expectation. With the team still finding their feet to start the league, a few hiccups early on against easier opponents, which had also been the case in years past, prompted another hole to be dug out of. From there the real season began with better team performances and standout individual play, starting an undefeated streak of 14 games to land the Fury in 1st place.  A number of ties limited the potential point tally, but it looked optimistic going in the final third of league play.

As the season progressed, a few notable injuries and departures to the Rinos squad took it’s toll and required re-enforcements to be brought in. Perhaps this led to inconsistent performances, with players struggling to build chemistry beside new faces required changes to the structure of the team down the final stretch .  At times, the Fury were unstoppable, controlling the game and playing composed soccer worthy of moving up a division. Other times they looked out of sorts, finding it difficult to create anything going forward.

With 3 teams fighting for the single promotion spot, it was only right that the last two games of league play were against these teams, both on home soil. With the season on the line, a Sunday fixture against Gastown FC brought nerves and excitement to a game that would decide which team would be playing in  Division 1 and the increased TV revenues that go along with it next fall (actually the addition of linesmen in this league is way better than money). Unfortunately, it was a game to be forgotten.  A 0-3 deserved loss brought the the Fury’s hopes crashing down. It would be another season in Div 2.

The Point Greysiders supporters club commented on the season. “We are proud of the mighty Fury, showing class through long stretches and the club record 14-game unbeaten streak. It was a devastating end to a bright looking season. We will always continue to support the team and look forward to a strong showing in the Summer league and for the boys to come out fighting in  2013/14”.

A team full of talent and potential, expected to move up will likely see big money transfers into higher divisions. The nature of this business.

Rino’s Vancouver SC Undefeated to Start the Season

Rino’s Vancouver SC opened the winter season in impressive style with their 5 teams winning 4 matches and tying 1, meaning the club remains undefeated after the first round of matches in the 2012/2013 VMSL season.

The Twin Arrows got things started off at noon on Saturday with a 5-1 demolition of TSA Royals “B” in CAT A division action. Stewart Prince and Stuart Macdonald set the pitch at Andy Livingstone ablaze, as both were multiple goal scorers in leading the line for the Twin Arrows. Rino’s Div 1 and U-21 teams then played simultaneously at 4pm. The Div 1’s prevailed in their home opener at Point Grey Secondary, where Cyrus Greenall scored the decisive goal in a 1-nil blanking of AC Campobasso (see highlight video after the jump). Meanwhile, the U-21’s enjoyed a comfortable 3-1 road victory over the Richmond TSS Olympics at Minoru Oval. Goals for the U-21’s were provided by Paul Kook, Kyle Reed, and Taylor Dickau.

The Bulldogs kicked their season of Sunday morning at Trillium with a 2-nil victory over GFC C-Men United. Team captain Brian Deo opened the scoring early in the first half, while Rino’s Fury gaffer Derrick Freedman sealed the game with a second half strike in his first competitive match in 10 months. Finally, the Fury dominated possession and created numerous chances in their afternoon game at Point Grey, but only Francarlos Leon could find the back of the net as they stumbled to a 1-1 draw with a hard-working West Van Royals side.

All 5 teams are back in action next weekend, starting with the U-21 home opener on Friday night.

Rino's Vancouver SC Set To Unveil New Jerseys This Weekend

Rino”s Vancouver SC are set for action in 3 important matches this weekend. On Friday night both the 1st team and Under 21″s are in huge 6-point matchups that could well define their seasons. Victory for the U-21 squad over West Van FC could help them secure a league title, while a win for the 1st team over TSA Royals would see them be level with their opponents while putting distance between themselves and the bottom of the pack as they look to rise up the standings. On Saturday the Fury are in for a tough battle with IFC Polonia who they drew in the 1st match of the season, and a win paired with some favourable results could put them back into the title hunt.

Not that any extra motivation should be required, but there
