Memorial Bench For Coach Wally

The SurDel Storm in conjunction with the 97 Delta Heat softball team are looking to install a memorial bench at the new Dennis Elsom Park in memory of Walter Couper. The bench location has been selected and is a prime spot to watch softball in the spring or soccer in the winter. Any parents, family or friends that wish to donate to this cause can contact Coaches Gregg, Ike or Kev. All funds raised will go to the purchase, installation and plaque for the bench thru Delta Parks and Recreation. If we manage to raise more funds than needed they will be donated in Wally's name to the B.C. Cancer Society.

Storm Are The Champions, Storm Are The Champions........

What a season for the Storm and why not end a fantastic season with just as good a League Cup final. The Storm were coming into today's final off of a less than convincing victory yesterday in the semi final against the SFC Xtreme. Their opponents in the final were the only team the Storm were unable to score on all year, the SUS Rockets, as their one meeting ended in a scoreless tie. The Rockets themselves had a very strong finish as they employed a strong defensive system coupled with an outstanding keeper. The Storm were aware that to secure a victory would require some patience as they would have to slowly breakdown the Rockets back three while at the same time ensuring no quick breakouts ensued. Both teams came out of the gate with a high and intense work rate. A lot of strong work in the midfield saw the teams trade possession on several occasions. The game was also fairly physical as both teams were trying to intimidate each other with some hard but fair challenges. The first real chance on goal came when Brittney was able to lose her check and placed a nice ball to the far side of the eighteen for Olivia. Olivia had a lot of power in the shot but it rocketed well over. Shortly after that the Rockets tried their luck from long range. A looping shot attempted to catch Lia off her line but she tracked the ball very well and collected on the line. The fans from both teams were getting into this very exciting contest as they were cheering both sides on to see who would score first. The Storm answered the call off of a beauty of a goal. Brit was working hard in the corner to lose her mark and she fed a great ball to the left side of the box for Jenaya. From the top of the eighteen Jen blasted a shot to the far right corner of the net and just out of the reach of the diving keeper. What a great shot and this really pumped the team up as just after that they came close again. A nice run down the wing from Jade saw her pass pick out Brit, again a rocket of a shot sailed over the bar but it also had the Rockets on their back heels. The first half whistle sounded and the Storm headed into the break with the lead. Storm 1 - SUS Rockets 0.

The second half was just as thrilling as the first as the fans could be seen pacing the sidelines and cheering on the team. The Storm kept up the pressure as a nice throw from Brooke to Jen saw Jen turn and shoot but the shot was off the mark. Brit then skipped by her check and curled a nice pass over to Jade. Jade carried well but the shot just fizzed wide of the post. The Storm came close from a corner as the ball fell to Olivia off of a scramble but the shot rolled just wide of the net. Brit, who ran for miles, then chased down a loose ball and smashed it towards the net, a rare mishandle from the keeper saw Jade push the ball wide but the defence shut down the shot and cleared the ball. Another short corner saw Steph put the ball out to Syd. Syd crushed the ball but the rising effort just sailed over the bar. The subs were standing on the sideline with their arms around each other and as the final whistle sounded they swarmed the field and jumped into their teammates arms. A great cup final came to a close with the SurDel Storm being crowned District champions. Final score Storm 1 - SUS Rockets 0. A great season Storm and we look forward to next season. Go Storm!!!

Wally, Great Guy And A Great Friend

It is with the greatest of sorrow that the Storm family has found out Wally Couper has passed away. Wally was a huge supporter of the girls and whether they were playing at their home turf or off in Richmond, you would see Wally pedalling up to the field and cheering on the girls in the most positive of ways.

When the girls were in U-6 soccer I would see this gentleman ride up on his ten speed, cheer on the team and then ride off in a cloud of dust. A few weeks later I approached him and found out who he was and then was given insight on how he would coach the defense. This was one of many defensive "meetings" that I would have with Wally over the years. Later on in softball it would be amazing to watch Wally pitch, for what seemed like hours, to the girls so they could practice their hitting skills. During the girls lead up to the USA Cup you knew more than anything that Wally wanted to go with the team and cheer on the girls. Winning the USA Cup was a big accomplishment for the players but bringing the cup over to Wally's house was important to the team. I will always remember his reaction to seeing the cup and him listening intently to the girls adventures.

Wally will leave a huge hole in the Storm family but we know he will be looking in on the girls and smiling as they excel.

Storm Look Stylin', You Can Too!

The parents are sure to have seen the Storm's new practice shirts in white and green. The Storm have a limited supply of these shirts available for the fans and supporters of the team. They can be bought as a gift or for yourself. Looking for a gift for grandma? Dad's looking to get out of the doghouse, OK you might have to get flowers as well. These make a nice statement. We have them in a variety of sizes but only in white so if you want one, $20.00 and it is yours. Check with Kevan for these and support the Storm!!!

Check Out The Pics

A great idea from Myranda's mom was to create a seperate site for our pictures thru the years. Our team site has some limited memory and so after several efforts we have managed to create our own Surdel Storm photo album. We have lots of capacity so send me your shots thru the season and we will add them as we go along. If we can get enough shots we might even have another try at creating another CD for the end of the year. Check under the Links section to find the brand new photo album. Go Storm!!!
