Rino’s Fury crowned VMSL Division 2 Champions!

Kicking off the season with a 14 game undefeated streak, including 9 wins on the trot in October and November put Rino’s Fury in pole position to win VMSL Division 2 and gain promotion to Division 1. A late year loss in the final round before the winter break to nearest rivals Vancouver Strikers meant the pressure was on for the boys to maintain their lead in the New Year. The boys rattled off another 5 wins in 6 matches including an epic 5-3 come from behind victory over America FC, and travelling to Squamish to grind out a . . . → Read More: Rino’s Fury crowned VMSL Division 2 Champions!

New VMSL Premier Team to be Coached by Blaise Nkufo

Over the summer months, the club’s management has been hard at work behind the scenes, and we now have two exciting announcements to make regarding the upcoming Vancouver Metro Soccer League season:

 

Rino’s Vancouver SC and FC Tigers Vancouver have merged operations to field a team in the VMSL Premier Division

For the past several years, Rino’s Vancouver SC has fielded a Division 1 side in the VMSL which has been a perennial contender for promotion, but has never quite been able to achieve that goal. In the last two years, a new challenger has emerged, FC Tigers Vancouver, and in . . . → Read More: New VMSL Premier Team to be Coached by Blaise Nkufo

Div 2 – Match 3 – 2013/14 – GFC United Lions

The Fury finally found their scoring touch this weekend with a 5-0 thumping of GFC United Lions on Saturday at Memorial Turf South.

After a somewhat shaky start, the team in blue began to control the play and create chances. With only 2 goals in 2 games, it was necessary that they start to take advantage of scoring opportunities. Striker Cougny got them off the mark after a through ball played him in on a breakaway. He neatly tucked in under the keeper and put the Fury up by 1. Not too long after, they went up 2 on . . . → Read More: Div 2 – Match 3 – 2013/14 – GFC United Lions

Div 1 Match 3 2013/14 – Akal FC

Rino’s took on former Div 1 power house Akal Friday night in what turned out to be a very (read that with emphasis, hence bold, but still, add some more, because I mean we fucking slaughtered them) one sided affair.

The game got off to a great start, with Haydn’s simple directions being followed to the letter. “Score early David”, “Yes Haydn.” and it was 1-0. A deep corner was artfully cushioned down by Billingham (who was to go on to have a monumental performance) and Moore was on hand to blast in from close range. The first of . . . → Read More: Div 1 Match 3 2013/14 – Akal FC

Div 1 Match 2 2013/14 – Serbian White Eagles

Rino’s desire to mimic last season exactly took another step in the right direction after a 0-0 tie with Serbia.

Rino’s started brightly, holding possession well, and created an inviting chance for Norton in the 10th minute after some sexy build up play through the right, but the shot was too close to the spry ‘young’ Serbian keeper.

What happened next was nothing short of shitting the bed, and for the remainder of the half Rino’s lived a charmed life, with Serbia’s inability to field good strikers the only thing that kept the score 0-0.

Div 2 Match 2 2013/14 – Caspian FC

Rino’s Fury 1 – 0 Caspian FC

In the second match of the season, Rino’s Fury faced Div 2 debutantes Caspian FC, who’s staunch defending proved a tough nut to crack.  Eventually a fine bit of service from Rino’s new-boy Diego Marchi was spectacularly finished by Ian Solven to give Rino’s the all important 3 points.

The match began with the Fury boys dominating possession.  Caspian it seemed were content to play with 11 men behind the ball, waiting for an opportunity on the counter.  The centre back pairing of O’Carroll and Hanson were again dominant in the air, . . . → Read More: Div 2 Match 2 2013/14 – Caspian FC

Div 2 – Match 1 – 2013/14 – NK Hrvat

Rino’s Fury 1 – NK Hrvat -1

The much anticipated 2013/14 season kicked off Saturday with an afternoon fixture away to NK Hrvat at Memorial Turf. The newly demoted Div 1 side would prove to be a good first test for the Fury. With a tough pre-season camp and a few new international DP additions to the squad (Keith O’Carroll, Guy Packham and Diego Marchi), the team looked to improve on last years season and challenge for promotion once again . First teamer, Brent Hanson also joined the squad after long-term injury struggles held him out of action last . . . → Read More: Div 2 – Match 1 – 2013/14 – NK Hrvat

Div 1 Match 1 2013/14 – AC Campobasso

The 2013/14 season kicked off in identical fashion to the previous campaign, with a 1-0 defeat of AC Campobasso.

The new pre-game handshake and photo-op added a sense of professionalism to the occasion, however Campo’s first few touches quickly dispelled any delusions of grandeur.

Campo, having lost the jewel in their crown (last years MVP Paraic Phelan) to Div 1 rivals Ajyal Tigers for an undisclosed fee, were flattered by the 1-0 scoreline. They produced no shots on target during the contest, whereas Rino’s were guilty of missing . . . → Read More: Div 1 Match 1 2013/14 – AC Campobasso
