BURNABY -- Victoria United defeated Kelowna's Okanagan Challenge 3-0 in the men's Pacific Coast Soccer League Sheila Anderson Memorial Challenge Cup playoff final Sunday to secure all three league trophies.

Victoria's silverware collection already includes this year's regular-season league championship George Cambridge Memorial Trophy and the John F. Kennedy Cup that goes to the top senior amateur men's soccer team from B.C, Washington and Oregon. Winning the league Challenge Cup playoff title gives the Victoria club its third championship.

"I'll be keeping all three at my place for awhile," said United head coach Dante Zanatta. "We've previously won two of the titles, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.

For the last four years, we've had a run at the Challenge Cup but this year the team was more focussed, they worked really hard and it paid off," said Zanatta.

Patrick Gawrys and Will Moore scored in the first half of the final match and Dan Cummings scored United's third goal with 15 minutes remaining.

Kelowna had some chances but was stymied by United keeper Rowan Anders, who recorded the shutout.
