Only the best teams get to go to B.C.’s senior AAA boys’ high school soccer provincials. The Dover Bay Dolphins are in the mix, and they’re hoping to come back with a medal.

The Dolphins started competition Thursday at the tournament in Burnaby. Facing a series of opponents who they hadn’t played before, Dover’s strategy was to force its own game.

“We’re trying to really concentrate on ourselves and making sure that we really focus on tightening up defensively and really working on pressuring the ball,” said Iain Baird, Dolphins coach. “We’ve been very good offensively right from Day 1. We’ve spent quite a bit of time focusing on moving the ball quickly.”

Pool play continues Friday (Nov. 25) with the medal round on Saturday.
