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.

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 . . . → Read More: Two Rino’s Squads Set for Provincial Cup Kickoff This Sunday
